The Panthers are teaming up with Coca-Cola


Starting this summer, Panthers fans will be sharing a Coke in Bank of America Stadium.

On Friday, the Carolina Panthers and Coca-Cola Consolidated announced a partnership naming Coca-Cola the official soft drink of the Carolina Panthers.

The Panthers are now Team Coke.

"We are thrilled to join forces with Coca-Cola Consolidated and their family of brands and flavors," Panthers team president Tom Glick said. "Our fans will be at the center of our new partnership. Throughout North and South Carolina, in their local communities, in stores, across our social media platforms and at Bank of America Stadium, fans will see and feel Coca-Cola and the Panthers coming together to bring them new experiences and programs all year round. Football season is around the corner, and we're ready to get started."

Beginning on Sunday with a double-header of Gold Cup soccer matches, fans at all events hosted at Bank of America Stadium, including Panthers games, will enjoy a variety of Coca-Cola products.

"Coca-Cola Consolidated is truly honored to officially partner with the Carolina Panthers," said Frank Harrison, Chairman and CEO of Coca-Cola Consolidated. "We are passionate about serving our customers and communities throughout the Carolinas. We're privileged to make, sell and deliver over 300 of the world's greatest brands and flavors each day, and we can't wait to refresh Panthers fans on gamedays."
