The LIVE GREATNESS campaign was born in 2021 from a collaboration between Hard Rock Cafe and Lionel Messi to celebrate the principles that gave birth to the brand fifty years ago with the opening of the first coffee shop in London in 1971.
In fact, the collaboration is reminiscent of Hard Rock roots, when in the early 1970s the first London coffee shop sponsored a local football team by putting its logo on T-shirts. The unused T-shirts were returned to the café and then given to the most loyal customers, becoming a real world phenomenon.
On its 50th anniversary, Hard Rock has returned to its roots by collaborating with the world soccer champion on a new range of merchandise, which in addition to its logo includes some of the famous Messi symbols such as the number 10 and the lion.
More information about the LIVE GREATNESS campaign is available here, while details of the partnership with Messi are available at this link. All merchandise for the collaboration between Hard Rock and Lionel Messi is available in Italian stores and online.
