Tri-Eagle Sales – the locally owned and operated beverage wholesaler distributing Anheuser-Busch and many craft and specialty brands throughout fourteen counties in North and North Central Florida -proudly announces their agreement as an official sponsor of Florida State University Athletics and the continued support for Florida State University.
A longtime supporter of both FSU and FAMU, Tri Eagle Sales recently secured a sponsorship agreement with IMG, the corporate marketing arm of Florida State Athletics, giving Tri-Eagle Sales rights to promote elements related to FSU Athletics.
