New York City FC and Pepsi have today announced a renewed and expanded partnership which will help bring to life more grassroots soccer opportunities in local communities.
New for NYCFC’s 2019 season – which kicked off on Saturday, March 2 – NYCFC and Pepsi will roll out several events throughout the year to make soccer more accessible to local youth and players of all levels.
A hallmark of the new partnership, NYCFC and Pepsi will co-host a 5-v-5 tournament in New York City this summer for more than 200 high school students. Those looking to participate will be able to sign up by submitting social media content showcasing their fandom of NYCFC and Pepsi. Tournament winners will win tickets to a hospitality suite at a NYCFC home game at Yankee Stadium and autographed merchandise. Follow NYCFC social channels for more details on how to enter.
These activities come as an extension of the previous partnership as NYCFC and Pepsi are continually committed to increasing accessibility to the sport.
As an Official Partner of NYCFC, Pepsi will continue to have a presence at home games as well as Club events that bring fans closer to their team, even outside of the Stadium when it isn’t a gameday. With multiple products from their portfolio of beverages, Pepsi will support all fans with variety of tastes.
