“Rugby is a part of life here in the UK, a fun part of the culture,” said GoDaddy International Senior Vice President James Carroll, who is a native of Ireland. “Its fans are passionate and I can think of no better way to raise awareness with potential GoDaddy customers than to be involved with Rugby League World Cup. We want people throughout Europe to know the GoDaddy name and to understand that we are here to help small businesses leverage the power of the Internet.”

Also on TV, GoDaddy has intensified its web hosting marketing efforts in the UK market. GoDaddy commercials have recently aired on British television during popular programs such as The X Factor and Downton Abbey. GoDaddy’s commitment to the UK region is supported by further marketing spends and sponsorship deals, including the broadcast sponsorship of ITV’s UEFA Europa League coverage in 2014.
