Visa Go World Campaign
Visa has been a proud Olympic sponsor and sole official credit card of the Olympic games since 1986. It joins Samsung, Panasonic, McDonald’s, Omega, GE and Coca-Cola as part of the group of “Worldwide Olympic Sponsors.” In addition to the sweepstakes, Visa has been running dramatic ads (voiced by Morgan Freeman) that talk about the majesty of the games and Visa’s role and relationship with them.
