CHICAGO, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Coors Light is bringing New York City soccer fans exclusive access to Juan Pablo Angel, one of Colombia's most renowned soccer players. Angel, known for his unmatched resilience, will share his inspirational story, sign autographs and take photographs with soccer fans 21 and over during a tournament viewing party happening on June 6. Party will be hosted by Univision Deportes' "Fanaticos del Frio" host Xavier Sol at Heights Tavern Bar and Grill in New York.
Angel's story is one that demonstrates the power of perseverance – one that Coors Light is honored to share. Not one to rely on innate talent alone to succeed, Angel trained twice as hard every step of the way, even when reaching the big leagues. His hard work and unwavering determination laid the foundation for a career with one of the most prestigious teams, and led him to make it big in Colombia, Argentina, England and New York.
"Juan Pablo is a symbol of positivity and passion for the sport. He is living proof that when you stay committed to whatever drives you and calls you higher, great things can happen," said Paola Gonzalez, associate marketing manager for the brand. "At Coors Light we're excited to share Juan Pablo's inspiring journey and aim a spotlight on his climb story."
"I want to thank Coors Light for inviting me to share my story with soccer fans in such an intimate way," said Angel. "I truly believe that great rewards come to those who work hard, and I hope to keep inspiring all those who keep climbing to reach their personal peaks."
In addition to Angel's upcoming appearance, Coors Light will host two more exclusive parties for diehard soccer fans on June 18 and 26. For more information on the soccer parties, follow Coors Light on Twitter @coorslight.
