Asahi agrees non-alcohol drinks deal at Perth’s Optus Stadium

Asahi agrees non-alcohol drinks deal at Perth’s Optus Stadium
February 16, 2023

Optus Stadium and Asahi Lifestyle Beverages have signed a landmark new deal that will see Western Australians served brands including Pepsi Max, Solo, Schweppes and Gatorade at the venue.

The five-year deal, will see Asahi’s non-alcohol drinks served for the first time at the 60,000-seat capacity venue.

Welcoming Asahi Beverages to the venue, Optus Stadium Chief Executive, Mike McKenna stated “the strength and depth of Asahi Lifestyle Beverages’ non-alcohol portfolio is a huge factor for us.

“We also have a strong focus on sustainability and making sure we minimise our carbon footprint. Asahi Beverages’ sustainability commitments, including their focus on recycled content in their bottles, will help ensure we offer Optus Stadium visitors beverages that are increasingly sustainable.”

With the link set to see around 700,000 litres of drinks sold to 1.5 million fans each year, Asahi Lifestyle Beverage Chief Executive, Nigel Parsons noted “we are tremendously excited to be getting more of Australia’s best non-alcohol drinks in the hands of Western Australian sport and entertainment fans, while increasing the variety of beverages on offer. Our drinks are already well-loved in Western Australia, but this will give them a huge boost.

“We’ll also use our iconic drinks to help bring the partnership to life for fans with new competitions, promotions and activations at the Stadium.”

Last year, Asahi Lifestyle Beverages entered a partnership with the AFL and its clubs - including West Coast and Fremantle - for Pepsi Max and Solo to become the League’s official soft drinks, Cool Ridge the official water and Gatorade the official sports drink.

Asahi Lifestyle Beverages is Asahi Beverages’ non-alcoholic drinks business in Australia.

In Australia, PepsiCo’s range of drinks are manufactured and distributed by Asahi Lifestyle Beverages.
