"We are very proud of this campaign as it helped us celebrate with our consumers two of the most significant passion points for the Hispanic community: Comida & Futbol" said Maria-Teresa Garcia-Rosell, Senior Brand Manager of Multicultural Marketing at Unilever. "Tu Seleccion brought together the excitement of futbol and the delicious cuisine that we love for Hispanic families to enjoy nationwide."

Earlier this summer, Tu Seleccion supported the MNT throughout their road to Brazil, sponsoring the team along the way as they played friendly games against Ecuador, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Portugal. The activities brought together MNT fans from Dallas, Chicago and Boston who got to meet MNT legends and had the opportunity to win tickets for matches in their respective locations.

Furthermore, Tu Seleccion accomplished the dream of the Villalobos', a local family from College Station, Texas, who won an all-expenses paid trip to Boston as VIP guests of Tu Seleccion. There, they attended MNT's final friendly match against Portugal. The lucky winners had the opportunity to watch the game from the Tu Seleccion suite, attended the team's warm up, and got to meet MNT star Andres Guardado, before MNT left for Brazil to battle the world's best futbol teams.

The overarching Tu Seleccion campaign merges two essential elements of Hispanic culture, Comida & Futbol, bringing a fresh take on soccer game viewing celebrations at home. Tu Seleccion engages the entire family with relevant tips and recipes for all members through existing social media channels, retail events, consumer at-home viewing parties and a webpage, http://www.tuseleccion.com/, full of solutions to help MNT fans host the best viewing parties in town.

Tu Seleccion is part of Unilever's continuous commitment to the U.S. Hispanic community. Unilever brands showcased through the Tu Seleccion campaign include – Hellmann's®, Best Foods®, Ragu®, Knorr®, Country Crock®, Bertolli®, Breyers®, Popsicle® & Degree Mena - all of which helped Hispanics celebrate their passion for futbol at home with their favorite products.
