Join first team players on the #GoForIt Challenge with OPPO Reno4 Pro
One of the shared characteristics between OPPO and Barҫa is the commitment to innovation and its quest for new
digital channels and formats that can connect with fans around the world. In keeping with these goals, OPPO has
joined forces with its global partner Barҫa to launch a new #GoForIt challenge on TikTok whereby fans can decide
what their favourite Barça-related moments and experiences have been.
The challenge is also taken up by first team players Gerard Piqué, Sergi Roberto, Frenkie De Jong, Miralem Pjanic
and Ansu Fati. The video is taken by OPPO Reno4 Pro, which comes with Ultra Night Video and Ultra Steady Video 3.0,

In this new #GoForIt Challenge, both Culers, as Barça fans are popularly known, and the members of Ronald Koeman’s
team have 90 seconds to answer questions about the club and choose moments from the past and future. For example,
they might have to pick between being a Barça coach or player, or between the 6-2 win in El Clásico and the comeback
against PSG, and so on.
Co-create unique and engaging experience on digital to connect with fans under the pandemic
At the renewal of the partnership, OPPO and Barça have agreed to strengthen the community with creative online and
offline fans engagement activities to bring fans closer to OPPO and the club.
“We are pleased to be able to work on a project like #GoForIt Challenge with OPPO, a benchmark in the field of
mobile telephones due to its constant commitment to innovation. This action highlights the shared values on which
our partnership is grounded, which include creativity and innovation, and is part of our strategy to promote
sponsorship deals that have a clear focus on the digital sphere, allowing us to take the club closer to the fans.
And this is something particularly important today, at a time marked by the limitations on physical events as a
result of the Covid-19 pandemic.” said Oriol Tomàs, Vice President of the FC Barcelona Commercial Area.”
Since the beginning of the pandemic, OPPO and Barça have focused on digital led activations to continue engaging
with fans around the world, ranging from a series of VLOGS shot on match days and weekly photos taken through the
lens of the OPPO phone, which known as #ShotonOPPO on social media, to integrate their products in digital content.
In August, OPPO and FC Barcelona launched a new campaign called #GoForIt encouraging fans to tackle their own dreams
and ambitions with the spirit of #GoForIt, regardless of the barriers they may encounter. When La Liga re-started
after lockdown, OPPO also launched a #CheerforBarҫa campaign where selected fan messages were displayed on the LED
boards at Camp Nou.
“While current market conditions and cancellation of live events have taken a toll on the global sports sponsorship
market, OPPO’s recommitment to our long-standing alliance with FC Barcelona is a signal of our brand’s momentum in
the region broadly,” said William Liu, OPPO Vice President, Global Marketing. “An established partnership like this
demonstrates that just like FC Barcelona is more than a Club, so is OPPO more than a smartphone company.”
In addition to the continuance of the FC Barcelona partnership, OPPO maintains its tennis partnerships with
Roland-Garros and Wimbledon and added the Boston Marathon. Leveraging the association with these international
sports partnerships drives OPPO’s increasing global presence and resonance with local fan.
