Today, PepsiCo announced a multi-year sponsorship contract with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
“We can’t wait to begin working closely with the Steelers, one of the NFL’s most iconic franchises, and be part of such a celebrated team with some of the league’s most passionate fans,” said PepsiCo North America Beverages Chief Marketing Officer Simon Lowden. “Our vast portfolio of food and beverage products will bring a lot of enjoyment to the Steelers’ community and we’re looking forward to partnering closely with the team on new initiatives. The Steelers organization is topnotch and shares our creative marketing vision.”
As part of the new sponsorship, PepsiCo will gain exclusive selling, dispensing and serving rights at Heinz Field; fixed stadium signage; venue and team sponsor assets; integration into the team’s mobile, TV and digital assets; and local media and retail promotional opportunities. Next to that, a new limited edition commemorative Pepsi MAX can will be launched in honor of the Steelers’ 80th anniversary, which will be available for purchase throughout Pennsylvania from fall this year.
