IRVING, Texas (Feb. 23, 2022) – Start your engines! 7-Eleven, Inc. is collaborating with Rocket League – a popular sports-action video game that features a high-powered hybrid of arcade-style soccer with vehicular mayhem – to bring gamers adrenaline-filled ways to take their play to the next level. With exclusive in-game 7-Eleven customization items and a fan-designed real-life 7-Eleven car hitting the road, there will be new ways for consumers to drive in style.

“7-Eleven’s social followers LOVE sharing their ‘carfies’ with us (AKA photos of their sweet rides in front of 7-Eleven stores) using the trending hashtag #CarsOf7Eleven and Slurpee-loving car enthusiasts have even organized unofficial car meetups in our parking lots across the country,” said Marissa Jarratt, 7-Eleven Chief Marketing Officer. “So, it felt right to give car fans the chance to boost their ride in the Rocket League arena… While also helping us design… and potentially win… a Rocket League-inspired car IRL.”
