JAGUAR LAUNCH MOURINHO CHALLENGE SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN ACROSS EUROPE

For fans that pride themselves on their football knowledge and believe they can take on contenders across Europe to predict the winners and losers in Brazil, Jaguar offers its own virtual summer football “event”. The campaign based on a Jaguar voting App, available now on Jaguar’s European Social Media platforms and via www.mourinhochallenge.com, engages with fans online and via mobile to test their football prowess and strategy for a chance to win a 3 month F-TYPE Coupé experience.
Once registered via the Mourinho Challenge App, participants can join the Challenge and a social sharing function allows users to invite their friends and play against them throughout the Championship in Brazil.

A leader board enables participants to ascertain their ranking compared to their friends and other users across Europe . The ultimate winner of the Mourinho Challenge will win an exclusive 3 months F-TYPE Coupé Experience. This once-in-a- lifetime driving experience will be awarded to the player who matches wits with the Special One himself and displays his or her football prowess to all of Europe.

A suite of content pieces featuring José Mourinho will be gradually released on Jaguar’s European Social channels to promote the campaign and encourage participation.

José Mourinho said “I am very excited to extend my partnership with Jaguar into Europe and am looking forward to seeing who will come out top at the Mourinho Challenge. I was the first customer in the UK to take delivery of the new F-TYPE Coupé and the prospect of driving it for three months should get everyone excited as it truly is one of the world’s best sports cars.”

Jaguar Land Rover Europe Regional Director Bernhard Kuhnt said: “I am delighted to have José Mourinho, an acknowledged expert in game strategy and winning, as the spokesperson for the Mourinho Challenge. We wanted to find a way to bring Jaguar as a brand and football together in a way that is credible and positive and taps into the passion football fans have for their team. I believe that we have achieved this.”

Interested fans and players can visit the competition’s Digital hub www.mourinhochallenge.com, which features all of the campaign content, provides access to the App and captures all Social Media driven conversations generated throughout the course of the campaign around the dedicated campaign hashtag #MourinhoChallenge. In addition, fans can catch brand new quips and commentary from the Special One himself, which will be regularly featured on Jaguar’s European Social Media channels. For those willing to take the “Mourinho Challenge”, they too may prove to be a Special One!
