Responsible Mexico Supporters Rewarded in Seattle

07/05/2017

Soccer United Marketing (SUM), Bud Light and TEAM Coalition encouraged supporters to be responsible while attending the 2017 Mexican National Team Tour and Fútbol Fiesta on Saturday, July 1st at CenturyLink Field.

Before the match, 294 supporters pledged to be responsible in the Fútbol Fiesta. Everyone who made the Bud Light Good Sport pledge had the opportunity to autograph a larger-than-life soccer ball, pose for a free souvenir photo and enter to win a Mexico National Team prize pack.

The Seattle match was the fourth of the Mexico National Team Tour where TEAM promoted alcohol responsibility. Click on the links below to see the summaries from earlier matches.

US DOT / NHTSA 2015 NATIONAL DATA:

• 10,265 people were killed as a result of alcohol-related (BAC > 0.08) car crashes, an increase of 3.2% from the 9,943 fatalities in 2014.

• Many, if not most of those lives would have been saved if people did not drive when they were impaired by alcohol or if they used sober, designated drivers or if they simply wore their seat belts.

• Statistics and research clearly show that 21-34 year old males are the demographic most likely to be involved in an automobile crash, drive when impaired by alcohol, and fail to buckle up.
