The San Diego Legion has signed an exclusive partnership with Southern California based ZICO to become the team’s Official Hydration Partner. ZICO delivers delicious coconut water and coconut water products to hydrate an increasingly dehydrated population using their foolproof three-step process. As an official partner, ZICO will work closely with the Legion’s athletes and training staff to help the team meet its hydration needs.

“We are absolutely thrilled to be the exclusive hydration partner for the San Diego Legion,” said Juliet Blake, ZICO’s SVP, Marketing. “Our partnership embodies the shared values of determination, passion, and teamwork that drive both of our organizations. Together, we encourage fans and athletes alike to 'grab life by the coconuts' and seize every opportunity with enthusiasm and confidence. As the Legion charges into the new season, ZICO is proud to keep them refreshed and energized, proving that the power of natural coconut hydration knows no bounds."

"This is a tremendous partnership opportunity for the Legion to align with ZICO,” said San Diego Legion Co-Owner Ryan Patterson. “Hydration plays such an important role in athletes maintaining peak performance and ZICO’s Coconut Water provides just the nutrients our team needs to excel on the field and in the weight room.”

ZICO makes three primary products: ZICO Natural, ZICO Chocolate, and newly launched ZICO HYDRATE. ZICO Natural is made from delicious, premium Nam Hom coconuts from Thailand, expertly blended together with coconuts from other parts of Asia. Its products deliver a true one-ingredient, super hydrating, optimally sweet beverage with no added sugar. ZICO HYDRATE, made with 30% coconut water with no coconut water taste, comes in three delicious fruit flavors. It is loaded with electrolytes and made for rapid hydration. And ZICO Chocolate tastes like chocolate milk but without the milk.
