Beverage bottler Coca-Cola Amatil has secured an exclusive three-year beverage distribution deal with Bankwest Stadium.
Amatil will provide non-alcoholic beverages to cater for an estimated 600,000 visitors in the first nine months.
The stadium holds 30,000 people and the license covers the 27 food outlets that it houses.
“Bankwest is a world-class stadium, and its patrons deserve world-class drinks,” Coca-Cola Amatil’s managing director of Australian Beverages Peter West said.
“We offer the full range of colas, water, juice, dairy and energy for Bankwest’s hundreds of thousands of patrons. That unrivalled portfolio of brands will be the perfect thirst quencher for all Stadium visitors.”
West said the partnership is part of Amatil’s long-term commitment to investment in Western Sydney. The business currently has bottling and distribution facilities in Northmead, Eastern Creek and Seven Hills.
Bankwest Stadium CEO Daryl Kerry said “it makes sense” to partner with one of the world’s most popular suppliers with “fan-friendly pricing initiatives”.
The Bankwest Stadium features its own Return and Earn container deposit point, to encourage recycling of bottles and cans, with proceeds from collection going to Western Sydney charities.
