By / MLB.com
The Chicago White Sox have reached a multiyear partnership agreement with FirstMerit Bank for title sponsorship of the luxury club restaurant and seating area formerly known as the Stadium Club. The restaurant and bar will now be known as the "FirstMerit Bank Stadium Club."
FirstMerit Bank is entering its third year of partnership with the White Sox as a presenting sponsor of fireworks nights, supporting the White Sox Volunteer Corps by assisting with community service projects throughout Chicagoland, hosting customer entertainment events, and participating in digital, printed and ballpark messaging. The two parties are strengthening this partnership by establishing Stadium Club naming rights for the first time ever at U.S. Cellular Field. The FirstMerit Bank Stadium Club is a fine dining restaurant located in the right field corner of the ballpark, accessible to members and their guests during game days, and available for rent on non-game days.
"FirstMerit Bank already has established a track record of giving back to our community and fans, and we look forward to building on that relationship with an incredible view and luxury amenities in the FirstMerit Bank Stadium Club," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. "As an organization, we take great pride in our fans' ballpark experience, and we look forward to having FirstMerit Bank be a significant part of that."
"This partnership is an opportunity to provide White Sox fans with a unique and first-class baseball-viewing experience," said FirstMerit executive vice president, chief marketing officer Julie Tutkovics.
