Popular with high-endurance athletes all over the world, Mongoose continues the strategy of positioning ERDINGER Alkoholfrei as an isotonic sports recovery drink that provides the body with essential vitamins and nutrients.
Working closely with the ERDINGER team in Germany, Mongoose will manage the brands sports communications sponsorship activities, which includes the Leeds, London and Blenheim triathlons, social media estate management, content creation and implementation and management of a bespoke influencer programme. The brief also includes activating the brand’s sponsorship of 4 x Ironman champion Lucy Gossage.
Export Director for ERDINGER Weissbräu, Mrs. Waltraud Kaiser, commented “We were impressed with Mongoose’s knowledge of the UK triathlon and endurance sports market and it was clear to us that they will be a great fit to support us in terms of communication in the UK. We’re looking forward to working together to ensure that ERDINGER Alkoholfrei continues to resonate strongly with the triathlon and endurance market.”

Launched in Germany in 2001 as the drink for athletes, ERDINGER Alkoholfrei has had a UK presence since 2013, through a tailored triathlon sponsorship programme. ERDINGER Alkoholfrei not only tastes fullbodied and refreshing, but is also healthy due to the vitamins and polyphenols it contains. Thanks to its isotonic properties, it provides the body directly with valuable ingredients and thus satisfies thirst even faster.
