“We are pleased to have such a well-known and iconic brand such as Coca-Cola on board for our initial season,” said Jones. “They have a long-standing presence at Royal Athletic Park and with the community that we are happy will continue through our inaugural season. We also can’t wait to see our HarbourCats logo making the rounds through town on the back of their vehicles.”
