USA – Constellation Brands and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) have signed a new multi-platform partnership that names Constellation’s Victoria beer the ‘Official Beer of SummerSlam’, one of WWE’s most-anticipated events of the year.

Two other Constellation beer brands, Corona and Modelo, will also form a key part of the agreement, which includes multimedia elements encompassing various WWE events and touchpoints.

Victoria will activate across a wide range of WWE platforms including a match sponsorship within the SummerSlam event and a segment sponsorship within the SummerSlam Kickoff Show.

Leading into SummerSlam, Victoria will partner with a WWE Superstar Brand Ambassador for special appearances and social media support. There will also be a targeted, cross-platform campaign across WWE’s digital and social platforms, retail activations and more.

“This integrated partnership will provide Constellation Brands the opportunity to leverage the personalities of our larger-than-life Superstars.”

“Victoria consumers are huge fans of WWE action and its Superstars so we can’t wait to be a part of SummerSlam and other activations throughout the year.”
