Old El Paso is teaming up with NFL UK for a new season-long partnership which sees the brand become an official partner of Super Bowl LV in the UK and Ireland.

During the run-up to the event which takes place on 7 February, the brand will be collaborating with footballer and NFL fan Bayo Akinfenwa for the return of its ‘Make some noise for Super Bowl’ content series.

The videos will be promoted on both NFL UK and Old El Paso social channels in UK & Ireland along with e-commerce partnerships and targeted media activity, as well as further digital support and influencer amplification.

The brand is also encouraging retailers to increase in-store visibility of Old El Paso best sellers ahead of the expected increase in demand in the lead up to the Super Bowl.

NFL UK director of commercial, Michelle Webb said: “We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Old El Paso. They are the ideal ingredient for people watching the Super Bowl and will ensure our fans kick off the biggest event of the year in style! It’s fantastic to see how the brand’s support has increased the popularity of the Super Bowl here in the UK.”

Brand experience manager for Old El Paso UK Sarah Hanley said: “At Old El Paso, we’re passionate about creating the good noise that happens when people truly connect over great food – and that includes cheering touchdowns! We can’t wait to once again partner with the global cultural phenomenon that is Super Bowl, and we hope our content series and Mexican-inspired recipes will again help households create the ultimate Super Bowl night in as they celebrate one of the biggest events of the year.”
