Pepsi releasing 25th Anniversary Magic can, and Magic scratch-offs!

Orlando Magic

The fun surrounding the Magic's 25th Anniversary season is certainly just beginning now.

The Magic announced 25 events occurring in the next 25 days to celebrate the Magic's 25th Anniversary leading up to the beginning of the season. It is going to be exciting.

Pepsi is now joining in the fun. PepsiCo, which has long been the official soft drink of the Magic and at the Magic's arenas, is releasing a special 25th Anniversary Pepsi can around the Central Florida area.

"Twenty-five years is an incredible milestone and we congratulate the Orlando Magic on all its continued success," PepsiCo North America Beverages Southeast Regional Vice President Rich Panner said. "PepsiCo has a long and successful history of partnering with the Magic to connect directly with our consumers in ways that drive the growth of our brands. This 25th anniversary Pepsi can is a great way to celebrate with local Magic fans and we look forward to another great season."

That should be a nice collector's item for those Pepsi drinkers.

Further, the Magic announced a special giveaway to take place at the first 38 regular season home games this year.

The Silver Ticket Sweepstakes will not have you singing and dancing with Oompa-Loompas, but it will give fans in attendance the chance to win instant prizes and a chance to win the grand prize — a new BMW, a seven-day stay at a Mariott hotel, two roundtrip tickets on Southwest Airlines and tickets to the Magic's April 14 game against the Pacers. The instant prizes include Magic giveaways, courtside seats to a game, fan experiences and discounts from partners like Walgreens, Papa John's pizza and NBA City at Universal Orlando.

The first 4,000 fans through the doors at the first 38 Magic games will receive a scratch-off ticket with a chance to win the instant prizes or a chance to win the grand prize. Tickets can also be received at Papa John's locations, Walgreens, the Magic Team Shop and elsewhere around Central Florida.

Five entrants into the sweepstakes will receive the chance to win the grand prize. To enter the grand prize drawing, visit

This is only the beginning. The Magic will be having "Legends Nights" to commemorate the greats of the team's past.
