Taking time to explain the new format, Afari stated, “Sprite globally is embracing music…it became necessary to include music in this year’s Sprite Ball so the Xpressions you see is the music component of this year’s program and since it is the global direction of the brand (Sprite), Sprite Ball Xpressions will become the order of the day so you will see basketball but you will see also music activated just like we do activate for basketball.” (Click highlighted text to watch full interview)
