Following up the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, Hyundai Motor Company once again looks forward to celebrating the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. As it is the first World Cup to be held in South America since the 1978 FIFA World Cup in Argentina, football fans from around the globe are expecting the most passionate and rhythmical global festival. 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™ will be held in 12 cities from June 12 to July 13.
Under the concept of ‘Social World Cup’, Hyundai Motor Company focused on developing programs
that greater numbers of fans could actively participate in wherever they are.
Hyundai Motor Company, Official Partner of the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™, made this year’s FIFA World Cup one of the most ‘social’ tournaments ever, as it continuously brought football fans together to celebrate the games and goals from Brazil.
As one of the results, more than 780,000 worldwide football fans shared their own ‘Fan Parks’ with others throughout the tournament by posting texts, music playlists, photos and videos through the ‘Pin my Fan Park’ program.
With the mobile game created by Hyundai, the World Cup fans were able to play a virtual football game with Iker Casillas and Ricardo Kaka! by taking free kicks and saving goals. The game was linked to social media, and the World Cup fans could share the score and play with friends.
There was an event predicting a winning team with Octopus from May 19th to July 12th in 2014. Based on a list of matches for the tournament. The football fans had predicted a winning team considering a whole score, and then the rank was decided. Total 67 participants received winner prize.
After the four years of boundless support and waiting, the most exciting time finally came. The passionate cheer and the endless encouragement from all football fans around the world were the true motivators for all the great players. Hyundai filmed that fans' passion and their journey towards the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil™.
In 2014 from June 12th to July 13th, Hyundai Fan Parks were hosted at five major cities ? Berlin (Germany), Madrid (Spain), Torino (Italy), Sarajevo (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Sydney (Australia) ? and over 5 million football fans experienced the exciting atmosphere of the month-long tournament.
To express Hyundai’s gratitude for the overwhelming
participation in the Hyundai Fan Park event, Hyundai
