The Omaha Royals (Class AAA: Pacific Coast League) unveiled the eight cornerstone and founding partners, who will receive some prime marketing territory when the new Sarpy County officially opens on April 15, 2011.
Quality Brands of Omaha has signed on as a Founding Corporate Partner, sponsoring the Scoreboard Bar, located to the left of center field near the scoreboard. A second Founding Corporate Partner is Centris Federal Credit Union. Centris is sponsoring the Family Fun Zone, which will be a secure area in left field foul territory.
In addition, there are six Cornerstone Partners. Pinnacle Bank will provide ATM service at the new ballpark; Pepsi will have pouring rights in the park; the whiffleball field will be called the Borsheims’ Diamond whiffleball field; McDonald’s is the sponsor for the Berm & Bullpen; Alegent Health is sponsoring Rosenblatt Way (the concourse along the first-base line); and AT&T is sponsoring the Home Run Porch.
“We have said all along how proud we are to be a part of this community, to be a relevant participant in the market and part of a new era in sports for Nebraska,” said Alan Stein, O-Royals president. “We are thrilled to have the caliber of companies represented by our premier partners joining us at the new ballpark.”
