The NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins announced the seven Founding Partners at Consol Energy Center, as the team prepares to open its doors in a little over a month.
The seven Founding Partners are American Eagle Outfitters, Dickâ€™s Sporting Goods, PNC Wealth Management, Trib Total Media, UPMC and Verizon.
â€œWe are proud that our list of Founding Partners reads like a â€˜Whoâ€™s Whoâ€™ of the Pittsburgh corporate community,â€ said David Morehouse, president of the Penguins. â€œAll are companies that are extremely active in the community, are generous in their charitable efforts and reflect the best of what the city and the region have to offer.
â€œBy joining us as Founding Partners, they are helping to ensure that Consol Energy Center will be a spectacular state-of-the-art entertainment center for the people of Pittsburgh and western Pennsylvania.â€
Each Founding Partner will have an entitled signature Landmark in the new arena (entry gate, suite level, youth-oriented display) in addition to long-term category exclusivity, use of the Penguinsâ€™ logo and all the traditional marketing benefits of a Penguins partnership. Each also will have a Founding Partner medallion in the bowl of Consol Energy Center.
