Eagles Set To Announce Soda Sponsor Change From Pepsi To Coke
The Eagles today will officially announce that the team has flipped from Pepsi to Coke in a long-term sponsorship deal. Of the 20 or so NFL clubs with soda deals to renew this year, some of the big-market teams have changed, with the Bears changing from Coca-Cola to Dr Pepper Snapple Group (which includes RC Cola) and the Steelers to Pepsi after 50 years with Coca-Cola. Pepsi had been an Eagles sponsor since the team moved into Lincoln Financial Field in '03, but the team was a Coca-Cola shop at Veterans Stadium for 31 years prior.
The change from Pepsi to Coke at Lincoln Financial Field is complete and fans at the June 9 Monster Truck Jam and the June 12 Kenny Chesney/Tim McGraw concert were already consuming Coke products.
