Athletics Signs Agreement With Pepsi
Beginning on July 1st, the athletics department switched out the vending machines and fountain drink stations in its facilities to PepsiCo products. Fans will now have access to nationally known brand names such as Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Sierra Mist and Aquafina.
As part of the new agreement with PepsiCo, Iowa State student-athletes will enjoy Gatorade drinks and other Gatorade nutritional products during practices and events.
The Gatorade brand has been around since 1965 when it was introduced as the first replenishing sports drink. Gatorade owns approximately 75 percent of the United States’ sports drink market and over 70 Division I schools use Gatorade as their sports drink provider.
