Major League Ultimate announced today a multi-platform advertising collaboration with BOLD Worldwide.

The Manhattan-based advertising agency specializes in sports and athletic brands with a focus on content creation and digital marketing. The announcement comes just as MLU prepares for the start of their third season, which opens when the Boston Whitecaps visit the Philadelphia Spinners on April 18.

“As a sports specific agency, we are constantly on the lookout for brands that align with our passions, and Major League Ultimate was a perfect fit,” said Brian Cristiano, CEO of BOLD Worldwide. “BOLD is focusing on the Philadelphia market for this initial launch of the Major League Ultimate advertising campaign. We wanted to connect with sports fanatics who live within driving distance of the opening game.”

“We’re also gaining a lot of valuable data from this campaign that will dictate how we run campaigns for MLU in the future,” said Cristiano.

BOLD has taken a multi-leveled approach to their campaign for MLU’s Philadelphia Spinners, employing television commercials, direct mail, digital display ads, social media and online video.

“We are going into our third year and looking to get to the next level,” said Nic Darling, Executive Vice President of MLU. “The expertise, especially in the world of sports advertising, that BOLD is able to bring to our marketing efforts is invaluable and we have already seen extremely impressive returns.”

BOLD Worldwide has worked with clients such as PepsiCo, Gillette, BodyGlide, Ray-Ban, NASCAR, SASS Global Travel and Wfit by Weider Nutrition, among others.

“It’s not every day you get the opportunity to help market an entire sport,” said Cristiano. “Ultimate has been gaining popularity over the past three years and to help MLU spread awareness and generate ticket sales is exciting for us.”
