West Bromich Albion Partnership
DMJ announce Holler as Timing Partner with West Bromwich Albion
Timing is a key word in football and the watch industry, where memories that last a lifetime are created in seconds. To win the match footballers must adapt to different environments, just as a watch brand must adapt to be the best on the market. So the announcement of Holler as the new timing partner for premier league football team West Bromwich Albion, is a fitting match.
Since the brand's official launch at IJL last year, it has grown from strength to strength. With a number of star sponsorship signings- from Mike Tyson to Diversity- becoming a timing partner marks an exciting and commendable new chapter in the Holler's launch plans.
Holler is one of only a few of the timing partners in the premier league, making this move perhaps one of the biggest feats yet.
DMJ Managing Director Darren McCormick said: 'The partnership with West Bromwich Albion is a very big and important step for Holler, and it will help achieve wider recognition for the brand. We have always tried to find fitting partnerships for all our brands, and see the choice of West Brom for Holler as a perfect combination.'
Holler's logo, which includes the iconic wings, will appear on all home matches timing screens. All watches can be found at http://www.holleronline.com/.
HOLLER SPONSORS NEWCASTLE EAGLES
Lifestyle brand Holler has signed a sponsorship deal with local basketball team Newcastle Eagles.
The Eagles are the most successful team in the British Basketball league, and winning the BBL championship for nearly 5 years consecutively.
The team is made up of a mixture of British and American players, reflecting the mix of inspirations in Holler’s design, of British and American soul and R & B legends. Another key link between the brand and club is the Eagle’s wings on the clubs crest, and the Holler wings from the Holler motif.
The first sign of Holler at the Eagle’s home ground (Sports Central) was on the 4th of May, and visitors to the Eagle’s matches can expect to see much more from Holler in the future.
Tyson new face for Holler
Former undisputed heavyweight champion of the world, Mike Tyson
takes on the face of Holler as the brand prepares to break out in full
force onto the UK market.
As one of the world's most recognised faces, Tyson has been a key
figure in the press of late. After retiring from boxing he had a number of
comeback fights but in recent times, is perhaps more well known for his
part in box office smash "The Hangover". Having just been signed up to
a part in the Hangover III, managing director of DMJ Darren McCormick
says, "This is a major coup for Holler to have another extremely talented
celebrity on side, as not only is Tyson a global superstar but we feel very
lucky that he is taking the time to endorse Holler at such a busy time in
Having already signed a string of upper cut talent this year, Holler
are setting up for a knock-out performance with international boxing
legend Roberto Duran and dance troupe superstars Diversity already
sponsoring the brand.
The design roots for Holler are entrenched in urban music, but crucial
to the Holler logo are wings. Wings typically express rising above and
beyond a challenge, something which championship boxers like Tyson
have very much in common with a brand like Holler.
After a star studded banner of signings, watch brand Holler add another jewel to their crown of endorsements.
One of the top ten fighters of all time - legendary boxer Roberto Duran.
Duran made an exclusive visit to the DMJ head office last week to browse through Holler's current collection, highlighting the Goldwax Gold watch as his personal favourite.
It was a memorable meeting for managing director Darren McCormick, as he has been a long-time fan of Duran citing "we are very proud to have secured another endorsement of such talent which rightfully reflects all elements of Holler as a brand".
Launched earlier this year, Holler's collection has bloomed from watches to a fully-fledged lifestyle brand, now selling complementing styles of t-shirts, multimedia accessories and sunglasses.
Watch this space.
Originating from America, Holler's roots spring from the black urban music industry and is influenced by soul stories, colours and styles.
Holler takes its design inspiration from many aspects of the Black urban Soul era from the music and lyrics to the fashions and styles of the vast Soul generations.
Before Holler has even been officially launched it is already being endorsed by Britain's favourite dance troupe Diversity.
Darren McCormick adds, "We are very pleased to have the nations favourite dance troupe, endorsing Holler. Diversity, are 11 incredibly talented young men, most of which have grown up together, making them have a brilliant collective identity, and energising their performances. We feel very proud to have such a successful and talented group endorsing the product".
Watches are available for men and women, with either digital or analogue movements, and offer a wide selection of styles and materials. With a retail price range from £50 to £180, there is sure to be a product for everyone. Also on offer from the Holler collection are baseball caps and t-shirts, with some exciting new products promised for this year.
