Both Astralis and Audi Denmark were very pleased with the positive community response and the results of the partnership. After thorough analysis of the results and during the following conversation between Audi Denmark and RFRSH Entertainment both parties decided to enter into a permanent agreement.
Jacob Thiesen, Digital Manager, Audi Denmark:
– We are very satisfied with the results from the pilot. However, when we enter this kind of agreement, we’re not only focusing on the numbers. For Audi Denmark, the CSR values of our partners are of utmost importance. The way Astralis and RFRSH work with a performance model combining gaming with physical training, focus on what the players eat and drink, mental balance and a healthy lifestyle is vital: Optimizing the body and mind to perform on the short and long run while staying sound.
– This partnership has the potential to play an important role in Audi Denmark’s future campaigns and model releases to engage with the attractive community in the world of esports.
Jordi Roig, CCO of RFRSH Entertainment:
– It’s a big day for RFRSH and Astralis. We are very happy to have been able to attract a brand in the category of Audi on the back of the results we’ve created together. The Audi x Astralis Q2 #untaggable spin off campaign was nominated for best insights, and it surpassed our own wildest expectations in terms of fan engagement and earned media reach. Luckily, Audi Denmark felt the same way and we are now looking forward to building a new strong engagement between Audi and the community.
– Esports is an extremely rewarding field for brands that make an effort to understand the industry. Esport as a passion media is a gateway to a young hard-to-get audience that is getting more and more resistant to traditional media. Old-fashioned one-way communication does not work with this audience and if you want to engage with this target group, you need to mean something to them, you need to be true to who you are and at the same time embrace what they do. Audi Denmark understands that and this is why we were able to create the results we did.
The new shirt, will be introduced on Thursday at a large fan event in the largest mall in Denmark. The new Astralis shirt is the first ever jersey designed specifically for esport players with their specific needs. Perfection lies in the detail. For Astralis and for Audi.
