11.08.2016 » Ronaldo new partnership with Elite Team: The CR7 blanket
// A blanket statement
Cristiano Ronaldo's personal brand, CR7, is everywhere. He has numerous endorsements and partnerships, including Nike, cologne, footwear, shirts and hotels. He even has an airport named after him in his hometown of Madeira, Portugal. Recently, he announced his partnership with a start-up from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in the United States – Elite Team. The agreement between Elite Team and Ronaldo was signed May 31, 2016, and includes exclusive worldwide rights to produce, distribute and market signature CR7 luxury blankets. Ronaldo took to social media to promote the new partnership.
When Ronaldo was given Elite Team's National Football League (NFL) luxury blankets to review for endorsement opportunities, he was so impressed with the quality, softness and durability of the company's blankets he wanted to start his own line of luxury blankets and agreed to the partnership.
Ronaldo and Elite Team have since created a line of luxury CR7 blankets to reflect his personal brand. The CR7 luxury blanket line is produced in the U.S., with the blanket fibers sourced from Portugal. The line consists of four double-sided blankets and two single-sided blankets.
The double-sided blankets are the result of hand stitching two individual blankets together. Three of the blankets feature a version of Ronaldo’s hulk image and CR7 logo. They come in classic black and gray, black and pink for breast cancer awareness and also red and green, Portugal's national colors. If you want a blanket with Ronaldo's determined look on it, there's a portrait blanket for you.
The remaining two blankets are single-sided and are available in black and white and Portugal's national colors, each featuring the CR7 logo.
// Combining the best of the best
Ronaldo and Elite Team both got their start in small towns and have risen to the top of their respective markets through hard work and proven excellence. Elite Team's blankets are 44 percent larger than the typical blanket, and the vibrant colors will not bleed or fade wash after wash, since they are pre-dyed into the blanket.
Without question, Ronaldo is a one-of-a-kind football player. With more than 500 career goals scored and a new contract with Real Madrid, his future is certainly bright.
