Did you know that Major League Soccer has an official tequila? Well they do. The brand is called el Jimador and also sponsors the US National Teams and the Mexican National Team’s American tours through those ever-present Soccer United Marketing connections. Now, they’re showing off their soccer pride with a set of bottles.
The bottles come in Mexican National Team, MLS, and US Soccer versions, with the logos prominently displayed on the bottles. Collect all three for what KCKRS is dubbing the “SUM Slam.”
From the press release:
“For those aficionados looking for an extra special way to celebrate the sport and prepare for the next MNT match, Mexico’s No. 1 selling tequila presents a series of el Jimador Commemorative Soccer bottles, available in stores February 2012. As the official tequila sponsor of Major League Soccer (MLS), the U.S. Men’s and Women’s National Teams and the annual U.S. Tour of the Mexican National Team, the brand will distribute the packaging once a year for a limited two-month period, to kick off the soccer season. The 750ml bottles will be available in all three expressions – Blanco, Reposado and Añejo – and will feature soccer ball motifs blended with the brand’s iconic graphic designs, and highlight the Mexican Soccer, U.S. Soccer and MLS logos.”
So get on it, aficionados. Drink your face off and support your chosen national team and/or league. Just be safe about it.
