Mets and Pepsi end deal, ‘Pepsi Porch’ is no more
Next season, the ‘Pepsi Porch’ at Citi Field will no longer exist–in a matter of speaking.
After six seasons since the stadium opened, the Mets and Pepsi have agreed to sever their sponsorship deal, according to the Sports Business Journal.
This means that the iconic ‘Pepsi-Cola’ sign that has sat above the right field stands since 2009 will be absent from 2016 on, and that the ‘Pepsi Porch’ is going to need a new sponsor and more importantly, a new name.
Maybe the new name of the porch will wind up being even catchier, but I can’t say that I won’t miss Gary Cohen’s calls of home runs headed towards that old Pepsi Porch.
