Mediapro Brands brings Toni Kroos and the writer Manuel Jabois together 

New branded content for Mahou as part of the “Five-star meet-up” series

Mediapro Brands created and produced a new branded content project for Mahou as the official sponsor of Real Madrid, as part of the “Five-star meet-up” series. The beer producer brought together Toni Kroos, the German midfielder who plays for Real and the journalist and writer from Galicia Manuel Jabois, the author of the song to commemorate the winning of the Tenth European Cup.

The “Five-star meet-up” series started back in 2015, with a slight change in format in 2021. Although the “Chatting Quietly” series on Twitch has got younger viewers used to consuming longer content pieces, Mahou proposes meet-ups between a player and a personality who have a mutual respect and admiration and chat about topics of interest to them both and help them to get to know each other better.

In this edition, Kroos and Jabois analyze what it is that makes Real Madrid special, the dreams that the German had when he was young as well as talking about topics such as Carlos Alcaraz and the current world of tennis, a sport Kroos is a big fan of. The last topic they discussed was the city of Madrid and its bars and restaurants. Mediapro Brands worked on the project with Mediatem which was responsible for the production and editing of the content.
