-- Campaign built around leveraging team’s success in 2010 WNBA Finals through inspirational messaging for young girls and women --

ATLANTA, March 3, 2011— The Atlanta Dream, the Women’s National Basketball Association’s (WNBA) defending Eastern Conference Champions, has launched its new marketing campaign for the 2011 season. The campaign features heavy billboard, radio and television advertising with customized player messaging and an open invitation for the Atlanta community to “Run with the Dream.”

“The ‘Run with the Dream’ concept captures what our franchise is about both on and off the court,” said Dream President & COO Toby Wyman. “The campaign captures our up-tempo, exciting style of play and in a larger sense, the team’s opportunity to inspire our core audience of young girls and women.”

The “Run with the Dream” campaign showcases the talent and athleticism of the team while highlighting the players’ on-court personalities. Television and radio promotional spots feature highlights of players, including All-WNBA forward Angel McCoughtry and 2010 WNBA All-Stars Iziane Castro Marques and Sancho Lyttle, with variations of the “Run with the Dream” tagline. A second set of radio spots will emphasize the team’s connection to the Atlanta community with a focus on the Dream’s platform of inspiring young girls and empowering women. The campaign was developed by goodsteve advertising, headquartered in Charlottesville, Va..
