In January, the Rams were granted access to Mexico as one of its four International Home Marketing Areas (IHMA). As part of the new program, the Rams are engaging fans in Mexico through a variety of ways to build on shared traditions as part of a long-term, strategic effort to drive NFL fan growth internationally. Since the program kicked off, the Rams have engaged fans in Mexico with a Super Bowl Sweepstakes, Rams Pick’em, and the Rams' Digital Lotería.
The Rams have a long history with Mexico, accentuated in 2018 when they prepared to host a game in Mexico City and engaged with the local community, civic partners, and fans there. The various connections between Mexico and Los Angeles across culture, geographic proximity, and tourism are infused through Rams gamedays, content and fan engagement efforts such as: the Vamos Rams platform; Spanish language content including game broadcasts on ESPN Deportes; and the NFL's only Mariachi band (Mariachi Rams). In addition to the existing Vamos Rams channels on Twitter (@VamosRams) and therams.com, Rams fans in Mexico also can visit the team's @VamosRams account on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook for curated content throughout the year.
