The company, a joint venture between Modelo and Constellation Brands, is targeting football fans in the country in the run-up to and during the football World Cup next month.
The packaging, which will contain 18 bottles of Corona Extra, will feature specially-wrapped bottles commemorating the seven Mexican Soccer League (MSL) teams the Grupo Modelo brewery is aligned with in Mexico.
Teams represented in the packs include: Club de Fútbol América (Mexico City), Club Santos Laguna (Torreón, Coahuila), Club Deportivo Atlas (Guadalajara), Club de Fútbol Puebla (Puebla), Club de Fútbol San Luis (San Luis Potosí), Club de Fútbol Atlante (Cancún) and Deportivo Toluca Fútbol Club (Toluca).
