Game Over For Robinsons’ Remarkable Wimbledon Partnership > Activative Top 10

As traditional squash brand Robinsons ends its official Wimbledon partnership after 86 years – one of the longest running tie-ups in the history of sports sponsorship – we showcase some of the best activations from the Britvic owned soft drinks brand since it was first invented at the AELTC tournament back in 1935 as a way to hydrate players before moving on to commercial production afterwards. Sadly, for such a legendary, ground-breaking sponsorship, reports suggest that the alliance finally came to an end after the AELTC was unable to allow Britvic to promote other brands in its UK portfolio (which includes 7-Up, Liptons, Mountain Dew, Pepsi Max, Rockstar and Tango) during the two-week tournament due to its deals with other drinks sponsors and suppliers such as Evian (official water), Lanson (official champagne), Sipsmith (official gin), Pimm’s (official spirit), Lavazza (official coffee). As a mark of sponsorship respect and a creative celebration, here we showcase Activative’s Top 10 Robinsons/Wimbledon activations and commercials from this iconic sports sponsorship.
