    Walkers celebrates summer of football with new packs, on-pack promo and competition

    As part of its continued partnership with the UEFA Champions league, PepsiCo has unveiled new limited-edition packs across its Walkers core range, which will celebrate five footballing legends. Shoppers can now get their hands on packs of Walkers featuring football icons: David Beckham, Thierry Henry, Leah Williamson, Lionel Messi and Gary Lineker.

    The packs, offer consumers the chance to win £500 every 90 minutes from 6 May until 14 July. To enter, shoppers need to purchase a promotional pack of Walkers, scan the QR code, then register their details and pack code on the website.

    “This is set to be a huge summer of football in the UK and will be a prime opportunity for retailers to build on the excitement of football fans across the nation,” said Rachael Smith, Senior Marketing Manager. “With snacking moments increasing when consumers watch sport with friends and family, the limited-edition packs and on-pack promotion will give shoppers the chance to celebrate the football season with Britain’s most loved crisp brand. With several million people estimated to be tuning in to watch UEFA Champions League Final, retailers can utilise these launches to maximise the sales opportunity.”

    To celebrate the new launches, Walkers are giving three lucky retailers the opportunity to win the ultimate football experience. To enter, retailers must purchase two cases of Walkers Ready Salted 70G PMPs and text FOOTBALL followed by a space, their full name, business name and postcode. Winners will be gifted two tickets to the UEFA Champions League Final, including a two-night hotel stay and transfers to the game and back. Walkers will also gift the winners a store makeover, including football themed POS to help them maximise the summer of football.

    “With the final taking place at Wembley for the first time in eleven years, we knew we had to offer our retail partners something unforgettable to thank them for their ongoing support. Independent retailers are instrumental to the success of the Walkers brand, and we’re thrilled to be able to give them the chance to win big this summer with our exclusive competition,” Smith added.

    These latest activities form part of Walkers’ new campaign, “No Walkers, No Game”, which is being supported by a 360 campaign.

    The limited-edition packs are now available across the grocery and impulse channels for a limited time only. The on-pack promotion is live from 6 May and shoppers can enter by purchasing qualifying packs of Walkers products until 14 July 2024.
