Gatorade will provide non-carbonated sports drinks and drinks stations for the anticipated 4500 athletes competing at the Games.
The company becomes the 46th Sponsor of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games which start on July 23.

“We are pleased to welcome Gatorade to our Sponsor Family on the eve of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, the largest sporting and cultural event in Scotland’s history.
“As an Organising Committee we pride ourselves on being athlete-centred and we are confident that the range of drink choices, which now includes Gatorade, will meet their needs.”
