With the World Cup in Brazil just over the horizon, Brazilian legend Pele has become a global brand ambassador for Golazo, Inc.

Pele and the Golazo team will begin working together immediatelyon Golazo’s award-winning Natural Sports Fuel drinks – Golazo Energy and Golazo Hydration.

“I know the importance of making healthy choices to provide your body with the fuel to be the best you can be, both on and off the field,” said Edson Arantes do Nascimento, the icon most commonly known as Pele. “I am excited to partner with Golazo, a company that matches my conviction for natural and healthier products with my passion for the beautiful game.”

“We are meeting the needs of today’s athletes in a new way,” stated Richard Tait, Golazo Co-Founder and CEO. “Golazo products are changing the rules in the traditional energy and sports hydration space, where incumbents are under increased scrutiny for artificial ingredients and sugar or sodium-laden formulas. The super goal is combining industry-leading functionality with phenomenal flavor, all from healthier Non-GMO ingredients; that’s the Golazo!”

“Our multi-year and cross-category partnership with the legendary Pele – who has scored more goals than any other professional player in history – celebrates peak performance and being the best you can be in a natural way,” continues Tait.

Pele headlines an expanding roster of notable soccer players on the Golazo Brand Ambassador Team. The company recently added All-Star midfielder and Portland Captain Will Johnson, and Seattle’s All-Star and National Team Defender DeAndre Yedlin.
