It will feature cups branded with Pepsi in the coaches’ chairs and include Pepsi branding across a number of touchpoints: multi-screen presence throughout the season, in-show and out-of-show custom activations on linear and social and prominent thematic storylines woven throughout the season. The integration will also bring to life and feature the newest U.S. Pepsi campaign tagline, “That’s What I Like” (“Es Lo Que Quiero”).

Pepsi unveiled five new national commercials to launch the new tagline, three of which were developed in partnership with the Pepsi brand’s Hispanic agency, Alma (“DJ BBQ,” “Subway,” and “Lavandería). The spots will air across English and Spanish-speaking properties to reach the brand’s ever-growing fusionista fans, Latinos celebrating and blending their Hispanic and U.S. cultures. OMD is the media agency behinf this effort.

- America First Credit Union/ MLS
Real Salt Lake is proud to announce a long-term extension to its partnership with America First Credit Union (AFCU). With the extension, America First Credit Union will become the Official Credit Union of Real Salt Lake, Utah Royals FC and Rio Tinto Stadium, and will also have a significant partnership with the 2019 USL Championship title-winning Real Monarchs and the RSL Youth Development Academy.The partnership extension will provide more exclusive America First Credit Union member-only benefits and connectivity with fans, and generate deeper, stronger and better market-wide promotions – including AFCU/Real Salt Lake and AFCU/Utah Royals FC co-branded credit and debit cards. Building on a long-standing partnership between the club and AFCU that has seen numerous activations at Rio Tinto Stadium, including in the America First Credit Union Pavilion, the two Utah community leaders will now extend their relationship to include promotions with the America First Charitable Foundation and the RSL Youth Development Academy.The Ogden, Utah-based institution is one of a handful of credit unions to align themselves with an MLS club. Many credit unions have elected to partner with MLS teams partly because it has historically been cheaper than sponsoring teams in larger leagues. America First has become one of the largest, most stable and most progressive credit unions in the country, and has remained a member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative financial institution. Today, America First has 131 locations, and is the ninth largest credit union in assets in the United States with over US$11.7 billion, and the sixth largest credit union in membership in America with more than 1,071,000 members.
