Oppo, the smart devices brand, has announces Ricardo Izecson Dos Santos Leite - better known as Kaká - as Global Brand Ambassador for its partnership with the UEFA Champions League.
As a former FIFA World Player of the Year and winner of the Ballon d’Or, the UEFA Champions League, FIFA World Cup, and much more, Kaká is an icon in the world of football and one of the most decorated players of his era at both the club and international level.
Together with Oppo, Kaká will return to the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, where the Miracle of Istanbul in 2005 took place. Oppo looks forward to celebrating the return of Kaká and the 2023 UEFA Champions League final to Istanbul with global fans.
“We are thrilled to welcome Kaká as Oppo Global Brand Ambassador for the UEFA Champions League 2022-23 season,” said Elvis Zhou, Oppo Overseas CMO. “Partnering with a global sporting event of the caliber of the UEFA Champions League gives Oppo an unrivalled opportunity to share our mutual spirit of inspiration with audiences around the world. We believe miracles don’t just happen, they are made of expertise and perseverance. With Kaká, the witness and creator of miracles, joining the Oppo squad this year, we will be better positioned to communicate and engage with our global fans while inspiring them to enjoy, experience, and share miracle moments from their favourite football matches.”
“Oppo’s spirit of ‘Inspiration Ahead’ is the same spirit that lies at the heart of every athlete’s ambition to achieve greatness in the face of adversity,” said Kaká. “As a big technology fan, I’m excited to have the opportunity to collaborate with a global technology leader like Oppo to further connect and inspire football fans around the world during this year’s competition and witness more miracles together.”
Prior to the UEFA Champions League final, Kaka will visit Indonesia and China for a series of Oppo activities on June 3 and June 6, respectively. Furthermore, he will engage with global fans and capture moments using Find N2 Flip and Find X6 Pro at the Oppo booth during the finale of the UEFA Champions League.
