Anheuser-Busch and the Budweiser brand have embraced TEAM Coalition’s Responsibility Has Its Rewards (RHIR) campaign. RHIR is the new message for the incredibly successful Anheuser-Busch Good Sport program.
Since 1986, Anheuser-Busch has supported the Good Sport program to help team owners, facility managers, concessionaires, event promoters, and wholesalers promote responsible alcohol consumption among adult sports fans. Good Sport showed the community that the team and the venue are committed to alcohol responsibility.
Most teams/venues have a published Fan Code of Conduct that addresses rules and expectations of fan behavior, with the objective of creating a positive fan experience. The Budweiser Responsibility Has Its Rewardsprogram is one component of the alcohol responsibility section of the Code.
RHIR continues the Good Sport tradition by coordinating efforts among the team, venue, concessionaire, TEAM Coalition and Anheuser-Busch. Together, we all can help create a positive environment that encourages fans to respect the rights of others and act responsibly (which includes having a plan to get home safely and prevent drunk driving).
