Detroit, MI, November 06, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Apex Marketing Group, a leading Naming Rights & Sponsorship marketing firm, has been hired by Sports Facility, LLC, the parent company of the Pennsylvania Rebellion professional women’s fastpitch team and The Washington Wild Things baseball team of the Frontier League, to conduct the evaluation and execute the sales process for a new naming rights partnership to begin at the conclusion of the current CONSOL Energy Park agreement. The current 10-year agreement expires on January 1, 2017.
“Since 2002, we have played host to professional softball, professional baseball, professional soccer, festivals, antique fairs and numerous concerts. I remember Taylor Swift performing here and Sarah Palin speaking to a crowd of over 10,000 people the day after she was announced as the Vice Presidential candidate,” said Francine W. Williams, managing partner of Sports Facility, LLC. “Our sports and entertainment venue has been a staple in the Washington County area for over 13 years. We look to partner with a company interested in our unique location and demographic audience and invested in our mission of providing a family fun and affordable entertainment option to the region. Engaging Apex Marketing to sell our naming rights gives us great confidence that we will be successful in securing a new naming rights partner that will maximize the marketing potential of both entities.”
According to Apex, the eventual naming partner will receive millions of dollars in media exposure throughout the year. The relationship will provide the opportunity for a company to go beyond traditional branding and showcase products and services at the ballpark and throughout the Energy Capital of the East.
“We believe that the North Franklin Township complex, strategically located as it is on I-70 with complete visibility to more than 10 million vehicles per year will continue to deliver quality entertainment options to families as well as to being a great marketing asset to a Naming Rights partner with unique benefits and branding value,” said Eric Smallwood, Managing Partner of Apex Marketing Group. “We have developed a presentation and a proposal that will identify these benefits, and we will begin meeting with prospective partners immediately.”
The venue features a capacity of 10,000-12,000 for concerts and festivals, and approximately 4,000 for sporting events. In addition the facility has 5 luxury party suites, a right field party deck, a play area for children, and a picnic area in left field.
Additional information on the naming rights opportunity is available upon request. Please contact Eric Smallwood, Managing Partner with Apex Marketing Group (810) 300-4834, or firstname.lastname@example.org
