SEATTLE — Golazo, the natural sports beverage company, announced today multi-year partnerships with two of the top professional soccer players in the country: Rookie of the Year finalist, U.S. National Team, and Seattle defender, DeAndre Yedlin, and Portland Captain and Canadian National Team midfielder, Will Johnson. The All-Star players become the first Golazo Ambassadors in company history and will fuel their game with Golazo’s award-winning, Non-GMO sports and energy drinks.
“We are thrilled that Will and DeAndre have joined our team and are stepping forward as advocates for healthier alternatives,” said Richard Tait, Golazo co-founder and CEO. “These partnerships demonstrate that top athletes want something better than what the market leaders offer, and we are proud that they have chosen to upgrade to Golazo Natural Sports FuelTM. Our drinks are optimized for performance and will help them be first to the ball.”
Yedlin and Johnson will stay hydrated and energized with Golazo’s Natural Sports FuelTM beverages. Golazo Energy delivers sustained energy from green coffee beans and yerba mate, hydrating electrolytes and half the sugar of most energy drinks. Golazo Hydration provides sodium and natural potassium from coconut water for replenishment, and a thirst-quenching formula to maximize endurance and recovery. Both lines are free of the artificial flavors, colors, sweeteners, and preservatives found in the leading energy and sports drinks.
“I love that Golazos’s drinks have nothing artificial, taste great, and help me go the full ninety,” said Yedlin, who is on the United States squad that will face Mexico on Wednesday. “I’m excited to partner with a company that is so passionate about football and making innovative products,” noted Johnson, the 2013 Canadian Men’s Player of the Year whose 2008 golazo won the Goal of the Year award.
The two players will kick off the partnership with a twitter takeover on Golazo’s handle this Thursday, April 3rd, in advance of Saturday’s Seattle vs. Portland derby. Fans are invited follow @VivaGolazo and visit VivaGolazo.com for full details tonight.
