“We have no plans to end our NFL sponsorship,” an Anheuser-Busch spokesman told CNSNews.com Tuesday after heavy call volume on the subject prompted the company to set up an option on their toll-free phone line for customers to voice their opinions on the subject.

Anheuser-Busch is “not proactively asking for feedback,” a company spokesman told CNSNews.com on Tuesday, adding that Anheuser-Busch has “no plans” to end its sponsorship of the NFL:

“The Anheuser-Busch phone line has always been available for consumer inquiries on a variety of topics, but we are not conducting a survey regarding our NFL sponsorship.

“We have many long-term sports partnerships, including our NFL sponsorship, and while we may not agree on everything, we still believe in the power of sport to bring people together and overcome their differences. We have no plans to end our NFL sponsorship.”

After a flood of calls last Friday regarding the company’s NFL sponsorship in light of player protests of the National Anthem played before games, Anheuser-Busch added the following message to its 1 (800) DIAL BUD (342-5283) customer service line:

“If you are calling with questions or comments about Anheuser-Busch’s sponsorship of the NFL, please press one.”

“At Anheuser-Busch, we have a long heritage of supporting the nation’s armed forces, veterans and military dependents. The national anthem is a point of pride for our company and for the 1,100 veterans that we employ. Please feel free to share your feedback after the tone.”
