7UP Named Official Soft Drink Of 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup

The Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football (CONCACAF) today announced an agreement with Dr Pepper Snapple Group (NYSE: DPS) that makes 7UP the Official Soft Drink of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup.

Through the agreement, 7UP will work with CONCACAF and its commercial agency, Traffic Sports, to develop programs that engage and excite fans leading up to and surrounding the Gold Cup – including consumer promotions, retail merchandising, ticket giveaways, premium offers, in-game advertising, product sampling and inclusion in promotional marketing materials, among other activities. The agreement also includes Clamato, Squirt, Sunkist soda, Peñafiel and other DPS brands.

“7UP is an iconic brand known for providing uplifting refreshment to its consumers, and they are a natural partner for a tournament with a growing, passionate following,” said CONCACAF’s general secretary, Enrique Sanz. “We are excited to team up with 7UP and DPS to connect with fans in ways they have never been reached and to ultimately enhance their enjoyment of the Gold Cup experience.”

“Soccer is defined by great moments, and 7UP fans love to savor life’s moments, which is why we are pleased to be sponsoring this year’s Gold Cup,” said Olivia Vela, director of multicultural marketing for DPS. “We’re looking forward to working with CONCACAF to develop programs that reward our fans’ passion for the Beautiful Game and for life in general with a truly memorable experience at one of the biggest soccer events on the continent.”

“We are delighted to have DPS back as a sponsor of the Gold Cup. Their participation is a great example of brands with multi-national appeal truly capitalizing on a multi-national tournament,” said Marcelo Radice, director of sponsorship sales & marketing at Traffic Sports. “Their commitment further demonstrates the growing popularity and power of soccer around the region.”

Taking place every two years, the Gold Cup has become the region's most popular soccer event, routinely drawing capacity crowds and millions of TV viewers across North, Central America and the Caribbean. Featuring the best players from the CONCACAF's three sub-regions, the tournament has grown into a 12-nation championship.
