In honor of the U.S. Women’s soccer team’s recent success in the World Cup and the Real Madrid vs. CD Guadalajara match in San Diego, AdEase presents, in no particular order, ten great soccer-related commercials.
This commercial focuses on the 1999 World Cup champion team. Nike was able to tie in humor and inspiration with this spot, as well as this one in the same campaign.
All of the “This is SportsCenter” spots are worth watching, but we get a kick out of this spot with the U.S. soccer star.
This recent commercial features the star of the women’s World Cup team, Wambach, making fun of the unnecessarily dramatic aspect of the sport.
This ad was made back when Becks was playing with Manchester United, and it puts a funny twist on the famous Coca-Cola “Mean Joe Green” commercial.
Diet Pepsi: David Beckham & Sofia Vergara
Vergara’s reaction to Beckham’s cameo makes this one of our favorite ads of 2011. The social media integration solidifies Pepsi’s fresh and youthful brand image.
Gatorade’s battle of the sexes video pits two famous athletes against each other in their respective sports, as well as others.
Nike focuses on the potential for greatness in the sport, using current male soccer stars playing for their countries and Nike athletes from other sports.
Although Messi’s long brown hair and use of a whiteboard may lead you to believe this is a UPS commercial, it is actually one of the more inspirational soccer commercials out there.
The San Diego native is featured in this humorous, yet inspirational, spot.
This commercial ran before and during the recent Women’s World Cup. Although the team took home silver medals, their final versus Japan was marked as ESPN’s highest-rated telecast for both men and women’s soccer.
