Sponsoring a sports event is a huge marketing opportunity for the brands. Super Bowl commercials are a rage across brands. 

When Coke decided to sponsor Euro2020 it hoped to garner some drastic increase in its sale numbers but things definitely didn't go as planned for them. 

At the press conference, when Cristiano Ronaldo chose Coke over water, that action spoke more than any amount of star endorsements and had a direct impact on Cola's stocks. 

As Coke's stocks took a plunge, memes were on a steady rise.
