Frito-Lay Showcases the Greatness of Women's Soccer to Inspire the Next Generation of Young Women, Athletes and Fans through FIFA Women's World Cup™ and Cracker Jill® Programs

PLANO, Texas, July 12, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- As fans worldwide prepare for what will be the most-watched women's sporting event of the year, Frito-Lay, Tournament Supporter and the Official USA Snack of the FIFA Women's World Cup Australia & New Zealand 2023™, is getting viewers ready for greatness with the debut of its new FIFA Women's World Cup™ campaign.

"We are excited to continue our work with FIFA for this year's FIFA Women's World Cup™," said Brett O'Brien, Chief Marketing Officer of Frito-Lay North America. "Frito-Lay is rooted in bringing real joy to special moments in life, and we hope to delight soccer fans across the U.S. with our new campaign, from a brand-new TV commercial uniting women's soccer icons and current stars to hosting the ultimate watch party experience with everyone's favorite chips."

Last year, Frito-Lay made history as the first salty-snack brand collaboration with FIFA during the FIFA World Cup 2022™. Now, Frito-Lay North America is continuing its relationship with FIFA as a Tournament Supporter for the upcoming FIFA Women's World Cup 2023™, marking the company's largest-ever investment in women's sports and underscoring its commitment to celebrating and supporting women in sports. As the Official USA Snack of the tournament, the agreement includes Lay's®, Doritos®, Cheetos®, Cracker Jill®, Tostitos®, Ruffles® and PopCorners®, as well as Quaker® hot breakfast cereals, Quaker® grain-based cereal bars, Quaker® rice snacks and Gamesa cookies and crackers.

Get Ready for Greatness
Frito-Lay's campaign includes a new TV commercial, "Taste of Greatness," that brings together current women's soccer stars and past icons, including Mia Hamm, Carli Lloyd, Abby Wambach, Brandi Chastain, Mallory Swanson, Briana Scurry, Marta Vieira da Silva, Christine Sinclair, Julie Ertz and Crystal Dunn, to build anticipation and excitement in the U.S. for the FIFA Women's World Cup™. The spot, directed by acclaimed director Bryan Buckley, will air during television broadcasts as well as online now through the duration of the FIFA Women's World Cup™, which takes place from July 20 through August 20.

Mixing animation and reality, the spot shows a mother sharing her love for soccer with her daughter, introducing her to the action and fun of the sport using fan-favorite Frito-Lay snacks to represent past and present legends of the game. The players spring into action as animated avatars, created using 3D-body scanning technology, facing off in what could be called the single-greatest game-never-played. The spot was created and produced by Frito-Lay's internal creative agency.

Frito-Lay will be going all out for the fans, offering more ways to get excited for the tournament and uplevel their viewing experience.
