Budweiser’s long standing tradition of creating team cans for Major League Baseball is taking on a whole new personality – one that embodies the fandom of the hometown supporter. Each design pulls from the archives of team moments, city icons and fan appreciated memories as local artists, in partnership with Budweiser, commissioned one-of-a-kind works for select market teams and the New York Mets are one of those lucky teams.
Designed in partnership with local artists and baseball enthusiasts, Budweiser’s MLB team design cans bring to life the true ambition and personality of each team and its hometown, featuring some of the most iconic elements of each city like the palm trees in Los Angeles to the Gateway Arch in Budweiser’s hometown of St. Louis.
Each artist was hand-selected to create the unique, locally-inspired designs, based on their personal connection to their team’s ambitious history and the fans that support the home team. The cans will each be wrapped in one-of-a-kind, personalized artwork to celebrate Budweiser’s commitment to the game while offering fans a way to support their teams from the first pitch to the last out.
“Baseball and the culture it created is a true celebration of the American spirit,” said Ricardo Marques, vice president, Budweiser. “This year, we wanted to leverage our long-standing partnership with MLB to raise a toast to the fans by giving them a piece of their hometown to enjoy right in the palm of their hand with our MLB designed team cans.”
Budweiser’s support of Major League Baseball is engrained in the brand’s DNA, with a rich heritage and history of partnership spanning more than 30 years.
“Budweiser has been a great MLB partner for a long time and continually evolves its marketing connected to our sport,” said Noah Garden, MLB Executive Vice President, Business. “These custom-designed cans are another terrific example of Bud’s support and their ability to connect with our fans.”
