SALT LAKE CITY, UT (Sept. 9, 2009) â€“ When UCLA takes on Tennessee Sept. 12 in Knoxville, more than 40,000 football fans will be offered the chance to buy Adidas Eyewear at a 40 percent discount.
The first 40,000 attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the UCLA vs. Tennessee Game Day Program, titled the Playbook, which will include a 40 percent off coupon valid for any pair of Adidas Eyewear. ProMotive.com, which connects manufacturers to proven sales influencers using deep product discounts, will facilitate the activation.
â€œTennessee Football is one of the most tradition-rich programs in all of college football. For more than fifteen years, only one brand has outfitted Tennessee Volunteers â€“ Adidas. We see this as a great opportunity to connect with Volunteer Nation and show them how much we appreciate their support,â€ said AJ Andrassy, Business Development Coordinator of Adidas Eyewear. â€œWithout ProMotive.com, connecting with such an enormous audience wouldn’t have been possible.â€
Adidas Eyewear is the official eyewear of the Tennessee Volunteers. In addition to being printed in the Playbook, the coupon will also run in the weekend edition of the Knoxville News Sentinel from September 10-12th.
