Next summer’s competition will have a particularly European feel, with the tournament being hosted in 12 cities across the continent to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the UEFA EURO.

The sponsorship deal will give the company the opportunity to showcase several brands, including sparkling beverages, sports drinks, water, ready-to-drink coffee and fruit-based drinks, with low, and sugar-free options.

“We value Coca-Cola’s continued commitment to European national team football, which is into its fourth decade, in coming on board as a sponsor for UEFA EURO 2020,” said Guy-Laurent Epstein, marketing director of UEFA Events SA.

“Coca-Cola is a perfect partner for us, not only because of its long association with UEFA but also because of its ability to unite people and bring them together. This is particularly relevant for UEFA EURO 2020, as, for the first time, we are staging the tournament across 12 countries, which will allow more fans than ever to watch top-level football across the continent.”

Coca-Cola has enjoyed a long and fruitful partnership with UEFA, having first signed up to sponsor UEFA European football’s premier national team tournament in 1988.
