PepsiCo Expands Alliance With Warriors, Becomes Founding Partner At New Arena

Special To NYSportsJournalism.com

November 6, 2017: PepsiCo, already an established partner with the defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors, is expanding and extending its alliance with the team, signing a multi-year deal that includes becoming a Founding Partner at the franchise’s new arena, scheduled to open for the 2019 season.

This agreement builds on a current deal with PepsiCo's Gatorade brand but now names the company as the team’s exclusive snacks and non-alcoholic beverage provider for the team, which will carry over when the Warriors move from Oakland’s Oracle Arena to the Chase Center in San Francisco (see in an artist's rendition).

PepsiCo will also have in Chase Center a 10,600-square-foot Pepsi-branded club, which will have about 1,000 seats, according to the team.

PepsiCo joins current Chase Center Founding Partners Accenture and United Airlines and naming rights partner Chase.

PepsiCo is also an official partner with the NBA.

Financial terms of the Warriors deal were not released.

"PepsiCo has been a great partner to the Warriors over the years and we're excited to grow our partnership and expand it to include the nearly 200 annual events we will hold at Chase Center and a variety of events throughout the entire district," Rick Welts, Warriors president and COO, said in a statement.

“For our Founding Partnerships, we are looking for brands and companies that are innovative and truly understand the sports and entertainment world, providing our fans with the best fan experience possible."

Welts said the PepsiCo's "unique understanding of sports and entertainment, combined with its array of popular food and beverage products that align with consumer trends, makes this collaboration an important part of our future success."

Under terms of the new alliance, PepsiCo would have selling, dispensing and serving rights of its food and beverage brands during the final two years at Oracle Arena. PepsiCo also has marketing rights with the Warriors, including mobile, TV, digital assets and local media and retail promotional opportunities.

PepsiCo will retain these same exclusive rights at Chase Center when it opens in the Fall of 2019. 

In addition to Gatorade, PepsiCo's food and beverage portfolio includes Ruffles, Rold Gold, Cheetos, Doritos, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Mountain Dew Kickstart, Lipton iced tea, Tropicana.

According to Adam Harter, vp-marketing and cultural connections for PepsiCo North America Beverages, “We value our long-term relationship with the celebrated Golden State Warriors and are honored to be a Founding Partner of Chase Center.

“We offer consumers a wide variety of food and beverage choices to meet every occasion and lifestyle, and are pleased to continue to bring our vast portfolio of products to the Warriors community and Chase Center guests.”
