Nick Announces The Nickelodeon Slime Cup 2014

Get your slime on with Nickelodeon this Summer! Nickelodeon, the number-one entertainment brand for kids and families, has announced that this summer, Nickelodeon will launch a brand-new global interactive multiplatform brand campaign called the Nickelodeon Slime Cup!

Fronted by Slime Cup Ambassador and mascot, SpongeBob SquarePants, four teams consisting of 20 players from the hit Nick shows "SpongeBob SquarePants", "The Haunted Hathaways", "The Thundermans", "Fairly OddParents", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles", "Sanjay and Craig" and "Sam & Cat" will be battling it out to take home the coveted prize – the Nickelodeon Slime Cup trophy.

The 14-week multi-territory, multi-platform event will drive participation across both Nickelodeon channels and digital websites; additionally, the Slime Cup will come to life in select markets, through specially created retail, theme park and mall experiences and on-the-ground events in markets such as Germany, France, Spain and Singapore.

The three month initiative will start and end with two special TV events. "The Nickelodeon Slime Cup Challenge" will kick off on-air in June 2014, and feature the live-action stars from Team Blue, Team Purple, Team Red and Team Yellow as they compete in three rounds of slime-filled head-to-head challenges to earn slime for their teams. The campaign will culminate in August 2014 with the second special TV event, "Slime Cup: Tournament of Champions", featuring Nickelodeon's favorite NickToon stars and reveal the winning Nickelodeon Slime Cup team.

Nickelodeon fans will be able to follow the action between the network's linear channel and its digital sites. Online ( from June through August, Nickelodeon fans will be able to move between their local Nickelodeon channel and digital sites, to root, rally and collect slime for their chosen team by participating in web-based activities. NickHeads will be invited to play games, answer polls and quizzes, view special behind-the-scenes content, watch online streaming video clips, and track their team progress using the Nickelodeon Slime Cup slime-o-meter. Throughout the campaign, the site will feature new and exciting content including a Slime Cup Victory Dance Competition that will launch in June, a brand new custom game "Slime Cup Games" coming in July, and activities encouraging kids to train along with some of their favorite Nickelodeon stars by participating in weekly fitness challenges. Kids will even be able to create their very own personalised team stat card on the site.
