Nice naming-rights deal to announce: the large group suite at Modern Woodmen Park, home of the Quad Cities River Bandits (Low Class A; Midwest League), will be known as the Budweiser Champions Club.
We honored this space as the Best Ballpark Improvement Under $1 Million in the 2013 Ballpark Digest Awards. The River Bandits took what had been an underused concrete patio and turned it into a glass-enclosed, climate-controlled space. In a northern clime, an open space can’t be used for most of the year, but the new Sky Deck boasts three sides of gorgeous glass windows, bringing the feel of being outdoors while still being completely enclosed. Four glass garage doors overlook the picturesque scene of Modern Woodmen Park and the Centennial Bridge stretching across the Mississippi River. On the other side is a spectacular view of downtown Davenport.
The naming rights is between 7G Distributing and the River Bandits.
“On behalf of 7G and all of its employees, it is our honor and pleasure to work with the Quad Cities River Bandits this season. The addition of the new Budweiser Champions Club is exciting and provides an experience for watching ball games that is second to none,” said 7G Distributing Sales Support Manager Tim Hayes. “We invite everyone to come out and help us cheer on the River Bandits and watch for our promotions throughout the summer and have fun at the ballpark all summer long!”
In addition to the Budweiser Champions Club naming rights, 7G Distributing will sponsor a Mega Mini Fridge Giveaway on Sunday, June 15, at the River Bandits 1:15 p.m. Father’s Day home game. Nine mini fridges will go to nine lucky fans – one for every inning.
“We are thrilled to partner with Budweiser to re-introduce the Budweiser Champions Club and share our vision of turning Modern Woodmen Park into a year-round, multipurpose venue that is much bigger than baseball,” said River Bandits co-owner Dave Heller. “The Budweiser Champions Club will be a year-round entertainment venue that will host a wide range of events, from weddings to corporate board meetings to family reunions to receptions to charitable events, and our new partnership with Budweiser and the great folks at 7G Distributors helps ensure that this room will always be one of the premier venue destinations in the Quad Cities.”
