Mexican Tequila brand 1800 Tequila has come together with the Houston Texans to celebrate life’s best moments by designing an 1800 Tequila bar at NRG Stadium. On game days, fans can visit the new bar to purchase signature cocktails including the “1800 Tequila Sideline Rita,” the Official Margarita of the Texans.
To celebrate the 2022-2023 season with fans, 1800 Tequila worked closely with the Texans to design an 1800 Blanco Texans limited-edition bottle to be released in December. The design pays homage to the Texans’ colour Battle Red and is the first time 1800 Tequila has designed a bottle in collaboration with a sports team.
To celebrate the new partnership, 1800 Tequila will host its Taste the VIP Game Day sweepstakes, awarding one lucky Texans fan two lower-level Texans game tickets, two sideline passes and a pregame meet & greet with a Texans Legend for the game on Sunday, December 18, 2022 when the Texans take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The sweepstakes will be open to fans from Monday, October 10, 2022 through Wednesday, November 30, 2022.
“By teaming up with the Houston Texans, we are committed to bringing fans a taste of the world’s most awarded tequila each and every gameday,” says Lander Otegui, Senior Vice President of Marketing of Proximo Spirits. “Our brand and the team share a vibrant fanbase in Houston and are ready to bring 1800 Tequila to the Houston Texans family.”
