Wells Fargo Center ditches Pepsi, signs official beverage deal with Coca-Cola

The subsequent time you pop proper all the way down to the Wells Fargo Center for a Flyers recreation, you will sit again and loosen up with the superior cola.

The Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center simply currently agreed to a deal with Coca-Cola for the favored mannequin to be the official beverage confederate of the employees, and of the world, in line with the Philadelphia Business Journal.

Pepsi beforehand had served due to the official soda of the Flyers and the Wells Fargo Center since 1996. It’s unclear for what variety of years the model-new deal with Coca-Cola will remain, in line with the Journal. The deal itself technically began earlier this yr, with the Flyers’ Oct. 9 home opener.

Mike Schwartz, the Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships for the Flyers and the world, suggested the Journal the switch was based totally on an outstanding deal from Coca-Cola, pretty than dissatisfaction with Pepsi.

Coca-Cola may be the principal sponsor behind an upcoming promotion generally known as the “Big Ticket Giveaway”, throughout which one fan wins tickets to all Flyers home video games, along with all live performance occasions and explicit events, on the Wells Fargo Center for a whole calendar yr, per the Business Journal.

At face value, this switch appears like a win for Flyers and Sixers followers, because Coca-Cola is undoubtedly the upper cola, and anyone who says in another case is fallacious.

However, as PhillyVoice’s Kyle Neubeck well-known, the world’s switch away from Pepsi does indicate the shortage of Mountain Dew, a popular choice for attendees in the hunt for a hyper-charged caffeine surge to stay awake through these 8 p.m. primetime begins. It moreover means swapping out Gatorade for Powerade (a loss), and shopping for and promoting Sierra Mist for Sprite (a victory).

Was I accountable for promoting and advertising and marketing with the Flyers, I’d use this opportunity to work on a Flyers-themed collaboration based totally round Coca-Cola’s (comparatively) new Orange Vanilla Coke and Gritty. But that’s merely me.
