PepsiCo Signs Global Partnership With EA Sports

PepsiCo has announced a new multi-year global partnership with EA Sports, naming three of its flagship brands – Pepsi, Gatorade, and Lay's – as new partners of football gaming property, EA Sports FC.

The strategic agreement will see both parties collaborate to deliver gaming experiences for modern football fans, the food and beverage firm said.

PepsiCo said the deal forms part of its overarching business strategy to deliver engaging fan experiences and activities that unite the realms of football, music, and gaming.

'Exclusive Experiences'

Global ambassadors from PepsiCo's roster, such as Vini Jr (Brazil and Real Madrid) and Leah Williamson (England and Arsenal), will feature in forthcoming activations, including entertainment crossovers, in-game integrations, and on-pack promotions that will grant fans access to 'exclusive experiences' and in-game rewards, the company said.

PepsiCo said the partnership will also provide a platform to further collaborate on existing PepsiCo initiatives, encouraging participation in football and gender equality in the sport.
