With this extension, The Coca-Cola Company’s brand has been named exclusive non-alcoholic beverage partners.
Through this arrangement, the brand will partner with all the men’s and women’s marquee competitions such as ICC ODI World Cups, ICC T20 World Cups, and ICC Champions Trophy until the end of 2031.
The collaboration reached a historic milestone during the official signing event, held at ICC’s headquarters and showcased Coca-Cola’s dedication to sports. This new eight-year arrangement between the beverage entity and the international cricket governing body will complete a total of 13 years (2019 – 2031).
