Advertisements for the LG G2 seen during soccer match
In addition, digital billboards played ads for the LG G2, which will offer a unique design with the volume and power buttons on the back of the phone. LG's new Android flagship model is going to be competing in a very crowded market that includes other Android flagships like the Samsung Galaxy S4, the HTC One, Sony Xperia Z, and the Motorola DROID Ultra to name a few. Getting the promotional campaign off to a quick start can make a big difference when it comes to competing in this market.
While the phone is coming to all four major U.S. markets, Verizon, which has been notoriously late in launching some popular models, has already put up a website so that interested customers can leave their email addresses and be notified when the LG G2 is available for pre-order.
By the way, in case you were wondering, Manchester United won the match.
Thanks, Anonymous Insider!

I still do not know how both LG and HTC justified having their own event for their handsets. Such a waste of money when Sony was just as effective, or even more so, using CES.
You guys don't have the clout and brand image yet, its not the time to strike and pour in the marketing. You'll just end up with another surface situation.

We won 4-1 :D
I noticed the G2 advertising, but NOTHING beats how Samsung are marketing the S4 in this league, those who watched the games will have noticed the 'GALAXY S4' branding on their TV, bottom left during games, sitting there the same way as the TV channel branding sits, someone must send PA a screenshot of that, Samsung must be paying hundreds of millions!
