SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers announce the release of 25th Anniversary glass Coca-Cola bottles. In partnership since the birth of the Panthers franchise, the Florida Panthers and Coca-Cola have offered fans co-branded merchandise and experiences throughout 25 years of Panthers Hockey. The limited-edition beverages are being distributed by Coca-Cola Beverages Florida (Coke Florida), the local Coca-Cola independent bottler and are available wherever glass Coca-Cola bottles are sold throughout South Florida.
"The Coca-Cola System has had a great partnership with the Florida Panthers since day one in 1993 when glass bottles were unveiled for the team for the first time," said Thomas Benford, Coke Florida's Chief Commercial Officer. When Coke Florida became the local Florida bottler, we were excited to carry on the partnership and now to continue the tradition of unique glass bottles for the 25th anniversary. We look forward to many more years cheering on the Florida Panthers."
The limited-edition six-packs of glass bottles are exclusively sold at participating retailers in the South Florida area from Ft. Pierce and the Florida Keys, while supplies last.
