Mike Ditka speaking engagementsFootball legend Mike Ditka is an avid cigar smoker, probably starting because of his winning days coaching the Chicago Bears in the 80’s. A three time Super Bowl champ, now he gets to put his name on a popular line of cigars. Camacho, the world’s boldest cigar and a core brand in the Oettinger Davidoff Group portfolio announce a new partnership with legendary hall of fame football player and coach, Mike Ditka.

Coach Ditka has had quite the career both coaching, playing and now off the field ventures. He was awarded NFL Coach of the Year honors in 1985 and 1988 by the Associated Press, The Sporting News, and Pro Football Weekly. Since retiring from football, he has gone into the sports broadcasting field and also a co-owner in the Chicago Rush Arena Football League team. Ditka has also done guest spots and cameos on shows from L.A. Law to Saturday Night Live, and 3rd Rock from the Sun. He also makes time for numerous speaking engagements and corporate appearances around the country.

Under this new partnership, the “Coach” and Camacho will develop a series of new cigar lines carrying the Ditka name, which will be made at Tabacos Rancho Jamastran in Honduras. Ditka will also serve as a brand ambassador and make corporate appearances at upcoming events, beginning with the Davidoff Golden Band Awards, which are to be held during this year’s IPCPR trade show in Orlando, FL.

“If I am going to put my name on something, it’s gotta be the best. The product and the package are outstanding. I am really looking forward to this relationship,” said Mike Ditka.

The first Ditka cigar line is set for launch in late 2012, with more releases set to follow in the early part of 2013. Maybe the Bears can get these cigars ready for 2013 Super Bowl after beefing up their team this off-season!
