Plaza Coca-Cola Celebrating the Return of the Mexican National Team to U.S.

With the launch of Plaza Coca-Cola, Hispanic soccer fans in the U.S. will have a place to call their own where they can celebrate with fellow fans and pay tribute to their favorite teams, according to the Coca Cola company. The special fan zone will debut at the first stop of the Mexican National Team’s (MNT) five city U.S. Tour in Atlanta.

At each MNT game in the U.S., Plaza Coca-Cola will be part of Futbol Fiesta, an interactive zone that spans more than 120,000 square feet and includes live music, games, celebrity appearances and prize giveaways.

Plaza Coca-Cola will celebrate the return of the MNT to the U.S., by bringing a little piece of Mexico to fans. A 25-foot replica of the Angel de la Independencia El Ángel ), a victory column located over Paseo de la Reforma in downtown Mexico City, will be a signature part of Plaza Coca-Cola.

El Ángel and Plaza Coca-Cola will travel around the U.S., following the MNT as it plays its first five games outside Mexico since the FIFA World Cup.

Plaza Coca-Cola made its debut on Wednesday, February 9 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta in advance of the MNT’s first match of its U.S. tour.
