The Portuguese business group, Horse Team/Campline Horses has announced the Brazilian footballer Neymar Jr. as its official global ambassador.
The collaboration is remarkable since it is the first time an international football star has supported the growth of a worldwide equestrian sport.
Neymar Jr., who was recently signed by the Saudi Pro League (SPL) team, Al Hilal, is spreading his sports and social effects by supporting the Brazilian Dressage Team, which includes Joo Marcari Oliva/Escorial and Renderson Oliveira/Fogoso. They will be competing in the Pan American Games in Chile in October 2024.
It was demonstrated last week throughout the visit to the Horse Team/Campline Horses Equestrian Center in Santo Estevo, Portugal, where the marketing effort that will shortly mark the beginning of the relationship was recorded. The first Global Ambassador for Horse Team/Campline Horses presents his enthusiasm, appeal, and supremacy to the equestrian world.
On this development, Neymar Jr., said, “I’m very happy to join the Horse Team/Campline Horses family, even more so to meet João Marcari Oliva and Renderson Oliveira, for everything they’ve done to take Brazil to the top of equestrian sport. I’ve always been curious to learn more about horses and I’m looking forward to learning more from them and celebrating the victories to come. This partnership is not just about sport, but also about the values we share: teamwork, defending equality, protecting animals, nature and, of course, love for Brazil.”
The Horse Team/Campline Horses Group, the sole owner of the two Olympic Purebred Lusitano horses (Escorial and Fogoso) and a large number of their offspring, remains similarly convinced in this collaboration, which sees NN Consultoria and Neymar Santos, the football player’s father, take on the role of exclusive commercial representation for Horse Team/Campline Horses in Latin America.
Rui Hortelão, CEO of Horse Team/Campline Horses Group, said, “Having Neymar Jr. as a Global Ambassador is an extraordinary step and a huge responsibility, given everything he represents in world sport. As we already had the opportunity to witness in Santo Estevão last week, where he made a point of going, despite the change of life he was making, we believe that this partnership will inspire a wider public to appreciate the talent, beauty and values of dressage, enhancing Portugal as a tourist destination with an equestrian tradition.”
