Garnier Fructis and the L’Oréal group announce their first esports team partnership with Team Vitality as the brands revive the V for Veuch campaign which will focus on providing exclusive fan experiences and exclusive digital content
Leading global esports organisation Team Vitality is pleased to share it has signed a partnership with global beauty leader Garnier Fructis and L’Oréal group. This collaboration spans across 2022 and 2023 and makes Garnier Fructis Team Vitality’s first ever haircare partner. After a previous successful collaboration on the V for Veuch campaign, which saw the debut of a playful sci-fi inspired video, the deal marks Garnier Fructis’ commitment to Team Vitality and its first esports team partnership.
The collaboration will see the continuation of the V for Veuch brand campaign which centres around the power of Garnier Fructis products. Last year the campaign saw the release of a creative mini-film with Team Vitality’s players and ambassadors such as LittleBigWhale and Victor “Fairy Peak!” Locquet on a mission to take down a mysterious monster with the help of Garnier Fructis.
With the new theme, ‘The Force Returns’, Team Vitality and Garnier-Fructis will work together on inspired brand activations. Fans will also have the opportunity to immerse themself in the campaign at selected events alongside Team Vitality’s players. There will also be chances to win experiences through Team Vitality’s social channels as they work together with Garnier-Fructis to offer exclusive opportunities for its fans.
Garnier Fructis will have visibility across all of Team Vitality’s rosters including the likes of League of Legends, CS:GO, and VALORANT with players championing the brand through content and digital assets.
“At Team Vitality we are always looking at ways to reach new audiences so it’s an honour to be recognised in the beauty and grooming space as Garnier Fructis’ first esports team partnership. It’s a true reflection on what we have built at Team Vitality that we are able to forge long-term partners in such an authentic and creative way,” commented Nicolas Maurer, CEO, of Team Vitality
“Garnier has always been a brand that is close to its consumers. Today, more than ever, we take pride in exploring new areas of expression to maintain the intimacy and authenticity that binds us to our target audience. As a result, it was only natural for us to take our first step into the world of esports last year and we are thrilled to be able to continue this beautiful partnership with Team Vitality! This is a great opportunity for our iconic Brand Garnier Fructis to strengthen its presence among Gen Z through the implementation of fun and offbeat activations!” said Stéphanie Borri – General Manager Garnier France.
