Pepsi® and Rockstar Energy Drink® are Prioritising Ease-of-Use Sustainability Solutions; Fans Who Make Positive Change Will Have the Chance to Win Tickets to Next Year's Final

PURCHASE, N.Y., May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- As thousands of football fans descend on Wembley, England to celebrate the culmination of a thrilling season, PepsiCo and UEFA (Union of European Football Association) are implementing a series of on-site sustainable programs to minimize the environmental impact of the match. Pepsi® and Rockstar Energy Drink® will lead the PepsiCo line up in engaging fans to help create positive change and rewarding them through prizes and experiences along the way. These efforts support the collective goal of making the UEFA Champions League Final zero waste to landfill by 2026. 

Pepsi to Pilot Simple, Fun and Engaging Sustainability Solutions for Fans to Win Rewards for Recycling

Pepsi Reuse & Reward Program at Champions Festival locations

Pepsi is proud to be a part of this year's UEFA Champions Festival – a public celebration across London that will offer great concessions, live entertainment and immersive experiences to thousands of fans before, during and after the match. To help reduce packaging waste produced at the Festival, four of the five UEFA Champions Festival locations – Trafalgar Square, Potters Fields Park, Regent Street, and Somerset House – will have dedicated Pepsi recycling infrastructure for fans to return their cups and recycle their cans, along with a roaming Pepsi team to assist and encourage fans to dispose of their packaging appropriately.

At the Potters Fields Park location, all Pepsi fountain drinks will be served in reusable cups through a new partnership with reusable cup provider, Event Cup Solutions. Two of the UEFA Champions Festival sites, Trafalgar Square and Potters Fields Park, will feature gamified experiences that reward fans who return their reusable cups or cans (cups only at Potters Field Park) to the Pepsi branded vending machines.

Fans at Trafalgar Square and Potters Fields Park are invited to participate by:

  • Buying a beverage in a reusable cup or can (depending on location).
  • Returning the cup or can to the Pepsi branded vending machine on site.
  • Playing a digital gamified experience to score special prizes, including custom UEFA Champions League merchandise and UEFA Champions League match balls, with one grand prize winner receiving a trip to next year's final at Munich Stadium.
  • Additionally, fans can find a voting bin activation at Potters Fields Park, encouraging them to vote for their favourite UEFA Champions League Final team after they have returned their cup.

    The above initiatives speak to research uncovered from PepsiCo's 2023 Recycling in Action Study, which found that a lack of understanding and incentive creates inaction. This year, PepsiCo is proud to pilot sustainability efforts that prioritise ease-of-use solutions making it simple, fun and engaging for fans who can win exciting rewards.

    Rockstar Energy Brings the Power at The Friday Night Show with Kinetic Dance Floor

    To give fans the unparalleled and unmissable music experiences they crave, Rockstar Energy is bringing back the Friday Night Show on May 31. For the first time, the brand is partnering with UK technology start-up Pavegen to install an energy-generating, kinetic dance floor at the highly anticipated Rudimental show in Trafalgar Square. The interactive brand experience converts attendees into active participants, as the energy they generate will help power Rudimental's microphone and DJ booth. As concertgoers move across the Pavegen dance floor, the weight from their footsteps will cause the generators to vertically displace in order to generate electricity.

    The one-of-a-kind concert will unite football fans and music lovers alike for one unforgettable night. Following the show, Rockstar Energy Drink will continue its partnership with Pavegen into the future as the kinetic energy dance floor will be repurposed for further use, together sustainably fuelling and powering a summer of music experiences.

    "What better way to inspire individual engagement in simple sustainable practices – at a mass scale – than at the most popular and prestigious football final in the world? Our sustainability efforts at the UEFA Champions League this year are designed to educate, motivate and reward fans to make positive change in simple ways through Pepsi and Rockstar Energy-led experiences that add to the fun. What we learn will be used to help us create engaging sustainable experiences that can be adopted by large-scale sporting events around the world," said Mark Kirkham, PepsiCo's Chief Marketing Officer, International Beverages.

    "It is fantastic to see PepsiCo leveraging the UEFA Champions League final to engage fans in sustainable practices at various touchpoints of the event. Collaboration with PepsiCo allows us to make positive strides towards goals set out in UEFA's Football Sustainability Strategy 2030, and our hope is that the work we are doing with PepsiCo inspires football fans and brands alike to use the power of football and its fans to drive important societal change," said Guillaume Sabran, UEFA Head of Sponsorship and Licensing.

    The sustainability efforts at this year's UEFA Champions League Final continue to work towards PepsiCo's strategic end-to-end transformation PepsiCo Positive (pep+), which puts sustainability at the center of how PepsiCo creates value and growth. 2024 marks PepsiCo's ninth year as a UEFA partner, and the first year of PepsiCo's renewed sponsorship of UEFA Champions League for the 2024–2027 cycle.
