“This event works because MTN DEW fans tell us they’re always looking for opportunities to engage with the brand, and Web3 is opening up whole new ways to do that. We think fans will love this. they will see, and there is more to come.
The immersive MTN DEW and NYXL experience in Decentralized, will feature not just the New York Subliners, but all competing CDL teams.

Decentraland still a popular metaverse for big brands
As many know, Decentraland is one of the most popular and active metaverses today. In fact, Decentraland and its main competitor, The Sandbox, tend to be the metaverses of choice. Not just for metaverse land investors, but also for brands looking to enter the metaverse.
Some of the massive brands and celebrities that had activations in Decentraland prior to Mtn Dew include: Skechers, Vice, JP Morgan, Jason Derulo, and The Migos. In the same way, Decentraland also hosted the first ever tennis Grand Slam in the Metaverse – The AO Decentraland.
Safe to say, Mtn Dew is in good hands with Decentraland when it comes to entering web3. In reality, The Mtn Dew and NYXL Decentraland event is the first in a series of Web3 activations that Mtn Dew’s parent company, PepsiCo, will continue in the future.
