Beiersdorf-owned Nivea Men and soccer team Real Madrid have signed a five-year contract to extend their collaboration globally. The campaign will be rolled out in 70 countries.
“Modern football and men care make a great match, both standing for values like confidence, togetherness, passion and mastery. Therefore, we are excited to bring our cooperation with the world-famous football club Real Madrid to a global level,” said Stefan F Heidenreich, Beiersdorf CEO.
