Orioles switch from Pepsi to Coke at Camden Yards

Camden Yards: Home to the Orioles, and now, also, to Coca-Cola products.

A week away from the 2024 season home opener, the team said it is switching allegiances from Pepsi to Coke. The Orioles have signed a multiyear partnership with Coca-Cola Consolidated, the country’s largest Coca-Cola bottler, according to a news release Thursday.

The beverage company, which in addition to classic Coca-Cola makes soft drinks like Diet Coke, Sprite, Fanta and Barq’s as well as the bottled water brand Dasani, will now be the official beverage partner of the Orioles and Oriole Park at Camden Yards, where baseball fans will be able to buy Coke products at ballpark soda fountains and in bottles and cans.

A team spokesperson did not immediately answer questions about which drinks will be sold at the stadium, or whether Coca-Cola’s logo will be featured anywhere, as Pepsi’s once was. The release does say that Coca-Cola plans to lead several community events and drink samplings at Camden Yards.

The beverage giant is already the official beverage provider at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. and at the Cincinnati Reds’ Great American Ball Park.
