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 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.
