Sports & Entertainment

Sport & Entertainment partnerships are part of the DNA of The Coca‑Cola Company​

In 1900, Coca‑Cola signed its first celebrity endorsement - the light opera & dance hall singer, Hilda Clark. Continuing the celebrity musical connection that has become so important to Coca‑Cola’s communication, the Metropolitan Opera diva Lillian Nordica appeared in Coca‑Cola’s first national magazine ad in 1905.​

Longest standing partner of the Olympic Games

Starting with the 1928 Olympic Games in Amsterdam, Coca‑Cola has partnered on every event since, helping to bring the Olympic spirit to athletes, officials and fans around the world.
