Coca-Cola Pin Trading Center at the 2016 Rio Olympics

Bud Kling, our contact with the Rio Coca-Cola Olympic Games Pin program, reports that there will be only one Coke Pin Trading Center in Rio and it will be located in the Olympic Park. As of this writing, there will be no Coke Trading Center in the Athlete’s Village. The Olympic Park Coke Trading Center will commence on Saturday, the day after Opening Ceremonies. Hours of operation are expected to be from 9 AM to 9 or 10 PM. There will be 6-8 tables. We are in the process of establishing the usual Pin Expert program with scheduled sessions on set tables of 3-hour time slots (hopefully).

No free passes for entrance into the Olympic Park will be available. Traders will need to have an event ticket valid on the day of entry into the Park. Tickets are still readily available.

Coke’s focus for their Rio Olympic activities is on teenagers and the teenage market/audience. Coke is expecting fewer foreigners at these Games, thus their presence will be reduced.

NOTE: The Olympin Collectors Club is not responsible for changes in the above information which was current as of mid-April 2016.
