Camarena Tequila prides itself on being the most awarded tequila.* Every bottle of Camarena Tequila is handcrafted in the Mexican Highlands with 100% blue weber agave, resulting in a well-rounded and smooth taste.
Camarena Happy Hour will serve as a recurring stream series converging the dynamic realms of gaming, tequila, and soccer. During each event, big-name soccer gamers will enjoy Camarena Tequila cocktails while introducing Blevins to soccer gaming and helping him decide which real-life soccer team he will be supporting. This will all be done using the ever-popular sports title EA FC 24 as a backdrop.
"Incredibly hyped to be partnering with the amazing folks at Camarena Tequila on our Happy Hour series," said Ninja. "We're giving fans a new way to experience the world of soccer with a ton of action and some of the biggest names on the scene. Fans should be sure to tune in, cause we have epic prizes up for grabs too."
"Camarena Tequila over indexes with both gamers and soccer fans," said Brandon Lieb, VP of Spirit of Gallo. "Our partnership with Ninja and other soccer gamers makes for a perfect match and will allow us to resonate with an engaged soccer and gaming audience."
In this unique Happy Hour experience, GameSquare creators and their crews will engage in exhilarating EA FC 24 matches, all while engaging in lively conversations about tequila and soccer with an array of popular gaming personalities, including EA FC streamer AA9Skillz, Argentine soccer legend Sergio Agüero, and more. As the journey progresses, the campaign will take an exciting turn in January by introducing the Camarena Tequila VIP Experience contest. Viewers who enter into this contest will have the chance to win a gaming session with renowned AA9Skillz, and virtually meet Ninja, serving as the perfect endcap for the campaign.
