LANDOVER, Md., August 21, 2023 – In an electrifying move, the Washington Commanders have forged a dynamic multi-year collaboration with Sire Spirits, a venture by the multi-talented Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.
This partnership introduces Branson Cognac as the Official Cognac and Le Chemin Du Roi as the Official Champagne of the Washington Commanders.
Furthermore, the esteemed G-Unity Foundation, an initiative of Curtis Jackson, will join forces with the Washington Commanders Charitable Foundation to amplify community outreach across the DMV region.
President of the Washington Commanders, Jason Wright, expressed his enthusiasm: “We’re delighted to unite with Sire Spirits and Curtis ’50 Cent’ Jackson in enhancing the fan experience. 50 Cent’s commitment to community resonates perfectly with ours.”
Sire Spirits will grace the Club Level Lounge, now named the “Branson Lounge & Gallery,” and debut the “50 Yard Branson Bar” on the 50-yard line this season.
Fans aged 21 and above can savor the spirits during game days and special events, including the team’s annual Draft Party.
“In the end, it’s about football and the men — and women now — who play the game. It shows you why this game is so great, why it matters so much,” Harbaugh said. “Because it takes those kinds of efforts.
It’s a game of courageous people and it’s a game for people who are willing to throw themselves around in tough, awkward situations. Physicality.
It takes that kind of grit to play this game, fight like that. Most people who love football love it for that reason right there. They respect what it takes to play the game.”
The game saw a showdown between Ravens’ Zay Flowers and Commanders’ Emmanuel Forbes, both first-round draft picks. Flowers secured his first professional touchdown, showcasing his prowess.
Commanders’ quarterback Sam Howell dazzled with 188 yards, two touchdowns, and zero interceptions, while cornerback Ar’Darius Washington shone defensively, permitting minimal yardage.
Rookie standout Zay Flowers exhibited promise, bagging an NFL debut touchdown. The Commanders’ offensive line impressed, allowing just two hurries during the first half.
Despite the Ravens’ win streak, they’re merely 1-point favorites against the Commanders at Caesars Sportsbook, with an 8 p.m. ET kickoff on ESPN.
“I’m eager to embrace the DMV community post my Final Lap international tour, sharing my acclaimed cognac and champagne with fans,” Jackson remarked.
Having inked a similar pact with the Houston Texans in 2022, 50 Cent’s Sire Spirits also collaborates with MLB, NBA, and NHL franchises.
This partnership marks a new era for the Commanders, following owner Dan Snyder’s sale to a group led by Josh Harris in July. The synergy between 50 Cent and the Commanders ushers in a thrilling chapter of growth and unity.
