London 2012 signs Heineken as latest sponsor

The London Organising Committee for the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) has appointed Heineken UK, Britain's leading brewer, as Official Lager Supplier and sponsor of London 2012 in a tier three sponsorship deal.
As part of the deal, the company's flagship premium beer, Heineken will be the branded lager served at the Games and Heineken UK will have exclusive pouring rights for its portfolio of beer and cider brands at all London 2012 venues where alcohol is served.
As an Official Supplier of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games, Heineken will be able to utilise exclusive hospitality and marketing opportunities associated with the event. It will also enjoy sponsorship and venue supply rights associated with the British Olympic Association, Team GB, the British Paralympic Association and the Paralympics GB team.
London 2012 Commercial Director Chris Townsend said: "Like many major events, the provision of food and drink is a part of the overall experience and this year sees our plans in this regard move up a gear. We are especially pleased to be working with Heineken, as we have a shared goal of encouraging adult visitors to our venues where alcohol is served to celebrate responsibly. We welcome Heineken to the London 2012 family and look forward to working with them between now and the summer of 2012."
Alexis Nasard, Chief Commercial Officer, Heineken N.V. said: "There are no bigger, global or more spectacular events than the Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. We selected this opportunity as it fully reflects Heineken's global brand position. It also provides a wonderful platform for the promotion of responsible drinking. Based on the experiences gained from being a long-term sponsor of premier sporting events such as the UEFA Champions League and the Rugby World Cup we will utilise London 2012 to celebrate with the world in a way that only Heineken can do."
Stefan Orlowski, Managing Director, Heineken UK, said: "We are delighted to secure this sponsorship and supply agreement with the London 2012 Games. We look forward to working with LOCOG to capitalise on the exciting opportunities it offers for the Heineken brand and Heineken UK. It is a significant investment and undertaking for the company and one that can help build pride amongst all our colleagues, business partners and consumers across the UK".
