-- TV presenter Sam Thompson fronts OPPO’s Wimbledon celebratory social media competition --
London, UK – 14 June 2022: Tennis-loving fans can look forward to a grand slam of events and competitions as leading global smart device brand OPPO serves up its fourth year as the Official Smartphone Partner of The Championships, Wimbledon.
To mark the centenary of Centre Court in its current location of Church Road in Wimbledon, OPPO is giving away 100 prizes as well as hosting pop up events in June and July to get Londoners in the swing of celebrating.
Launching today, a social media-led competition fronted by TV presenter Sam Thompson offers the chance to win an all-inclusive trip to the Gentlemen’s Singles Final on Sunday 10 July, as well as a series of runner-up prizes.
For the not so social media savvy, from Thursday 30 June – Saturday 2 July, OPPO will once again take over The Scoop – an outdoor amphitheatre situated on the south side of the River Thames overlooking Tower Bridge - where Wimbledon can be enjoyed on the big screen via a live stream. For three days only, attendees can be a VIP with dedicated seating, drinks and the chance to win tickets to The Championships this year. What’s more, attendees can also try out OPPO’s ‘selfie-serve’ – an experience that let’s you capture a selfie with friends and have an edible projection added to ice cream.
The series of events follow OPPO’s Roland Garros tennis tournament sponsorship and form part of the brand’s ongoing commitment to its UK and wider European customers via a long line of partnerships with high-profile sporting and cultural events in the UK and beyond.
Charleen Fang, Managing Director, OPPO UK, commented: “We’re really excited to once again be sponsoring Wimbledon and bringing this fantastic line up of events to our customers as part of the Centre Court centenary celebrations. Wimbledon is one of the biggest and most prestigious sporting events in the calendar and we wanted to create plenty of inspiration around that, whether it be enabling people to watch a match live, enter a competition to win a once-in-a-lifetime prize or try out technology that allows us to project an edible selfie onto ice cream.”
Gus Henderson, Commercial Director at the All England Club, added: “We’re delighted that OPPO is joining with us to celebrate the centenary of the iconic Centre Court in its current home. As the Official Smartphone Partner of The Championships, OPPO continues to find new ways to bring the beauty of Wimbledon and the world-class tennis closer to our audiences. This year is no exception and fans will no doubt enjoy the array of experiences on offer, including the chance to win tickets to Wimbledon.”
