Topgolf Swings Alliance Naming Coca-Cola As Official Beverage Partner

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

December 3, 2018: If you plan to go to any of TopGolf’s locations nationwide, you can count on swinging a club, entertainment and a lot of products from Coca-Cola.

Topgolf has signed a multi-year deal naming Coca-Cola as its official beverage partner.

That include such categories as carbonated, juice, tea and water.

The list of more than a dozen brands features Coca-Cola, Coke Zero Sugar, Diet Coke, Sprite, Fanta Orange, Barq's Root Beer, Minute Maid Light, Vitaminwater Zero, Gold Peak Tea, Dasani, smartwater, Topo Chico and Simply juices.

Financial terms were not shared.

Topgolf currently has 50 locations, with new venues either soon to open or being planned.

"Few brands can put a smile on a person's face like Coca-Cola beverages can. We're proud those moments of happiness will now be created at Topgolf," Brian Radics, CMO for Topgolf, said via the company.

"After all, Topgolf is in the business of bringing people together for great times. Coca-Cola is an ideal partner to elevate the Topgolf shared experience with our guests."

Coca-Cola said it has “committed to bring the Topgolf fan experience to new heights.”

Among the activation, Topgolf and Coca-Cola will have weekly College Nights, an experience for college students to enjoy Topgolf with special benefits.

Beginning in 2019, Topgolf guests can participate in Coca-Cola game integrations inside World Golf Tour with a chance to win exclusive prizes and experiences from Coca-Cola.

In addition, Topgolf will be featured in Coca-Cola’s ”Sip & Scan,” program which will give people access to special offers at Topgolf.

 According to Andy McMillin, CMO of Coca-Cola North America Foodservice and On-Premise, “We are excited to welcome Topgolf to the Coca-Cola Family and share our passion for refreshing sports fans and enhancing their entertainment experience.

“We look forward to leveraging our brands, programs and joint marketing activities to create unique experiences for Topgolf guests."
