Georgia national championship Coke bottles are reportedly out in stores
Georgia fans now have one more item to try and secure for their memorabilia collection from the national championship season.
Radi Nabulsi of UGASports.com reports that Coke bottles are now available. The last time Georgia won the national championship, in 1980, Coca-Cola produced a first-of-its-kind commemorative bottle and accompanying tray. Both became cherished collectibles. This time, Georgia and Coke both announced in the spring that commemorative six pack 8-ounce glass bottles would be available this August, in time to celebrate the fall college football season kickoff.
It appears they’re rolling out in stores across the state.

In the spring, Coca-Cola released a commemorative 12-ounce can to mark the milestone. The limited-edition Coca-Cola can – available in six packs – featured the custom logo commemorating UGA’s impressive national football championship.
In a news release in the spring, Coke officials congratulated the Bulldogs.
“We congratulate the Georgia Bulldogs on their College Football Playoff National Championship win and encourage fans to celebrate with us in Coca-Cola’s home state,” said Crawford J. Jones, Vice President of Coca-Cola UNITED’s East Region, which is based in Atlanta. “Georgia fans can toast to their team’s victory by relishing the delicious, refreshing taste of Coca-Cola in a commemorative can or glass bottle.”
