Golazo® Welcomes Two New Star Players to Its All Natural Sports Energy Squad

Latin-Inspired Mandarina and Jamaica Flavors to Debut at Whole Foods Market and Other Leading Retailers

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - Mar 5, 2012) - Golazo, Inc., the passion brand for soccer, is excited to announce big improvements to its already stellar beverage lineup. First is the introduction of two new phenomenal flavors: Mandarina (mandarin, pronounced Man-Da-Reena) and Jamaica (Hibiscus punch, pronounced Ha-My-Ca), which join Mango-Limon and Sugar-Free Mango-Limon on store shelves. Secondly, the company strengthened the entire Golazo All Natural Sports Energy™ roster by using non-GMO ingredients in all its products.

Golazo, meaning "super goal" in Spanish, offers a unique, all natural formula, phenomenal Latin-inspired flavors, and sustained energy and hydration to soccer players and fans alike. Building on the brand's success, all of Golazo's products are now available at Whole Foods Market, Fiesta Foods, and are slated to debut later this month at New Seasons Market, PCC Natural Market, and nationwide at Amazon.com.

"We are passionate about offering healthier choices without sacrificing flavor and functionality," said Golazo co-founder Richard Tait. "The introduction of non-GMO ingredients throughout our whole line and the addition of pioneering flavors like Jamaica and Mandarina celebrate our brand values and respond to the needs of today's customers and retailers."

With 50 percent less sugar and almost half the calories of the top three leading energy drinks, Golazo All Natural Sports Energy is a game-changer. Containing no artificial or genetically-engineered (GMO) ingredients, 100 mg of naturally-sourced caffeine, and electrolytes for hydration, the 12-ounce drinks are the perfect choice for today's active lifestyle.

Golazo is deeply rooted in the thriving Pacific Northwest soccer community with its headquarters in Seattle and manufacturing facility in Portland. Golazo started with grassroots momentum at indoor soccer arenas and during local pick-up games, and swiftly spread into the amateur and professional soccer communities of both players and fans.

"At Golazo, we live, breathe, and play soccer, just like billions of fans throughout the world," said Tait. "Using only the best all natural ingredients and flavors, we didn't compromise. We created a superior product to celebrate the beautiful game and set a new standard in the category."
