The Kansas City T-Bones (independent; American Association) and CommunityAmerica Credit Union announced an extension of the naming-rights deal for CommunityAmerica Ballpark.
Terms of the deal will not be disclosed.
The ballpark has been known as CommunityAmerica Ballpark ever since the T-Bones moved to Kansas City from Duluth, Minn., 10 years ago.
“Ten years ago, we could not have made up a better name for the ballpark,” said T-Bones President Adam Ehlert. “In practice, we could not have invented a better, stronger partner. CommunityAmerica Credit Union is very well-aligned with our values and focus, and most significantly, our fans really appreciate that. I am also tremendously proud of our staff — their daily dedication allowed our product to speak for itself. This really was a partnership that both parties were equally excited to continue.”
“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with the Kansas City T-Bones,” said Lisa Ginter, CommunityAmerica Credit Union Chief Operating Officer. “More than just a naming rights sponsorship, CommunityAmerica Ballpark clearly demonstrates our commitment to providing our community with affordable family-friendly entertainment. We believe this sponsorship brings more awareness to Kansas Citians that they can — and should— be members of our Credit Union to benefit from our sincere approach to helping them succeed financially. For that reason and more, we consider this a homerun for both organizations.”
