CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–There’s no better way to celebrate a momentous Chicago Blackhawks victory than to share an ice cold Coca-Cola or Coke Zero, especially when it’s in a special Chicago Blackhawks limited-edition commemorative can.
In honor of the Blackhawks and all of the dedicated supporters who cheered their team to victory, both Coca-Cola and Coke Zero are unveiling special 12-ounce cans, emblazoned with the Chicago Blackhawks logo. The limited-edition six-packs salute the Blackhawks for their outstanding 2014-2015 championship season.
“Coca-Cola congratulates the Chicago Blackhawks on this historic moment and joins the team’s countless fans in their much-deserved victory celebration,” said Eris Crosswhite, Manager of the Coca-Cola Production Center in Niles, IL.
“We are proud to make it possible for Blackhawk fans to pick up a special limited edition six-pack in stores throughout Chicago,” said Luke Emery, General Manager of Great Lakes Coca-Cola Distribution, LLC. “What better way to pay tribute to our hometown champs than by helping them share an ice-cold Coca-Cola with their friends and family?”
Beginning this week, fans can visit participating local retailers to purchase their own six-pack of the specially designed collectible cans, while supplies last.
Coca-Cola is a proud partner of the Chicago Blackhawks. As a longstanding team supporter, Coca-Cola annually offers a variety of programs designed to engage and excite Blackhawks fans, including consumer package promotions, VIP experiences and product sampling.
