Le Coq Sportif is one of the main sportswear brand in France. So, since few years this brand lost market share and prestige.

So to inverse this tendancy Le Coq Sportif decide to invest on two great French Sportmen, Joakim Noah and Frédéric Michalak.

Joakim Noah and Fréréric Michalak are two interesting sportmen, because they evolve abroad, in United Stades in the NBA (Chicago Bulls) for Noah and in South Africa (in Natal Sharks) for Fred Michalak. That in order to integrate this market, for example, Le Coq Sportif create a subsidiary in United States.

So the choice of Joakim Noah is also strategic because, his father, the famous tennis player, Yannick Noah was during a lot of years the symbol of the brand.

David Beckham, a famous English football-player is the sportsman who earns the greatest amount of money with his advertising contracts. He’s a marketing man and if a team like Los Angeles Galaxy bought him, it’s as much for his image as for his qualities as a football player.

David Beckham has become a marketing product, whose value has been built on pitches, but also and especially in celebrity magazines, in TV shows, and on catwalks.

Adidas, Gillette, Motorola, Pepsi, Volkswagen spend more than 19 Million €uros per year to use the image of Becks.

With his new contract with Los Angeles Galaxy Beckham should earn about $248m , but if the team spends all that money it’s because they now they can earn money with the sale of shirts or with the tickets for example,  that is why I’ve decided to show DB’s shirt rather Beckham’s photo.
