Modelo today announced the evolution of its highly successful Full-Time Fans campaign as the beer maintains its presence as the Official Beer Sponsor of the College Football Playoff.
Spanning all networks and major conferences, Modelo is bringing all new advertising and media partners to amplify the Full-Time Fans campaign for the 2023-24 season.

"The evolution of Full-Time Fans is a testament to the amazing passion from fans everywhere. We are excited to continue championing the Fighting Spirit that lies at the heart of football fandom in a way that’s uniquely Modelo," shared Vice President of Brand Marketing, Modelo, Greg Gallagher. "As the Official Beer of the College Football Playoff, we are committed to elevating the fan experience at home, at bars and in stadium by rewarding those who stand by their team through every moment of the season.”
As Modelo expands its presence to reach consumers nationally, the brand will tap into the distinct characteristics of football fans across the nation as the Official Beer Sponsor of the College Football Playoff. This year’s campaign celebrates the passion, devotion, and drive of true fandom, and positions Modelo as the ultimate reward for Full-Time Fans.
“At Disney Advertising, we understand the connection between sports and the unforgettable experiences they create, particularly during the college football season,” said Marco Forte, SVP, Sales, Disney Advertising. “As we continue our collaboration with Modelo through the evolution of the Full-Fans campaign, we are committed to delivering an exceptional experience centered on true fandom; Modelo is one example of a brand that is leaning into the magnitude of this tentpole moment and creating opportunities for engagement both on and off the field.”
Modelo also recognizes fans who put in overtime hours to support their team in the brand’s new role as the Official Overtime Beer Sponsor of ESPN College Football. When regulation ends and overtime begins, Modelo will welcome Full-Time Fans into “Modelo Overtime” with the final TV spot of the commercial break and a billboard segment in-stadium before game play restarts. Modelo will also be featured on ESPN and the Wrap Up Digital Live show on ESPN’s YouTube page while fans watch overtime highlights.
The Modelo Full-Time Fan Contest is back again, offering fans another chance to demonstrate their fandom for the opportunity to win a $100,000 grand prize and an unforgettable trip to the College Football Playoff National Championship in Houston, Texas.
