The Official Cerveza of Major League Baseball is rewarding fans who step up to the plate for Opening Day

CHICAGO, (March 6, 2024) — While MLB Opening Day is not technically a national holiday, it sure feels like one to baseball fans. That’s why Corona is helping fans to celebrate the day at the ballpark and with a cold Corona Extra in hand! For the start of the 2024 season, the Official Cerveza of Major League Baseball wants fans 21 and older to take the day off from work, boldly letting their bosses know that on Opening Day, their attention is needed on the field and far from the workplace.

To participate, baseball fans need to simply follow @CoronaUSA on Instagram and boldly tag their boss* in the comments of the sweepstakes-specific post. They will then be entered into the sweepstakes for a chance to win from a variety of prizes, such as Corona†, a free one-year subscription to MLB.TV or a pair of tickets to a select home opener. Baseball fans can participate in the Opening Day Off Sweepstakes today through March 13, 2024 at 11:59 AM, EST.

“Opening Day deserves to be enjoyed in the finest way possible: with an ice-cold Corona in hand,” said Saúl Trejo, director of brand marketing at Corona. “As the Official Cerveza of Major League Baseball, Corona is proud to champion the fans who never lose, and reward those who live in the moment to take the day off.”
