NEW YORK — As the pro football season approaches, the sport’s brightest stars are focused on diet, training and discipline. One basic part of many athletes’ programs: hydration and replenishment – and more than a few are doing it with coconut water.
Vita Coco, the country’s best-selling coconut water brand, is as in-demand on the field as off. Today the brand confirmed that pro football stars Marshawn Lynch, running back for the Seattle Seahawks and Miles Austin, wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys have been
signed as sponsored Vita Coco athletes. They join Eric Decker, the Denver Broncos wide receiver who was signed for a second year as a Vita Coco spokesperson.
All three athletes will be featured prominently in retail and social media campaigns.
In addition to football, Vita Coco continues to build a loyal following in the world of professional sports, from baseball stars Josh Hamilton of the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Dustin Pedroia of the Boston Red Sox (now in his third year as an endorsed Vita Coco athlete) and basketball All-Star Joakim Noah of the Chicago Bulls.
The addition of fresh coconut water to pro athlete’s regimes has increased dramatically in the past few years, with sports stars, trainers and coaches collectively turning to Vita Coco, praising the coconut water brand as the best source of natural hydration and replenishment.
