Ooredoo Appoints Neymar Jr. as the New Face of its 5G

Ooredoo has announced that they have signed with Neymar Jr. to become the face of its new company.

Ooredoo, the official Middle East and Africa Telecommunications Operator of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022, signed a partnership with NR Sports to announce footballing superstar Neymar Jr. as the company’s new face for promoting the amazing potential of 5G.

Known for his love of technology and gaming, Neymar Jr. will help build awareness of 5G’s phenomenal capability to upgrade people’s worlds in every way. He will work with the telecommunications leader and pioneer of commercial 5G to promote the benefits of the fifth-generation technology and of Ooredoo’s superfast networks to customers across its global footprint.  

Neymar Jr. is widely considered to be one of the most talented footballers of the current generation. He has twice been named South American Footballer of The Year. His transfer to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 helped his team win the Ligue 1 four times and the French Cup three times.

The partnership with Neymar Jr. is perfectly timed with the Group’s new brand promise to ‘Upgrade Your World’. Ooredoo Group’s new tagline stems from its ambition to enable human progress, reflecting the company’s commitment to keep improving and never standing still.  

We are super excited to partner with sporting legend Neymar Jr. who is among the most admired and charismatic sports personalities on the planet. As someone who is constantly reinventing himself, dynamic, confident, and committed to excellence, he fittingly embodies our brand promise to keep upgrading the world of our customers.

In recent years, Ooredoo has invested heavily in its award-winning networks across its global footprint and has spared no effort in its preparations for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ to ensure an enhanced fan experience never seen at such an event.  

Everyone knows how much I like technology, games, as well as being connected to my friends and family. I tested Ooredoo’s 5G and it’s really super because of the low latency that is fundamental for those who play online. More than that, being the face of such an innovative company in such an important time in my career, makes me even happier.

We believe sport unites and has a positive influence on our communities, helping to share important messages of collaboration, inclusion and resilience. Neymar Jr. is an inspiration to millions around the world, which makes him an ideal face for Ooredoo. With the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ fast-approaching, there is not a better time to communicate the power of our 5G network that will see us provide superfast connectivity services to the global tournament. We are very excited to be working together.
