LACROSSE.COM Joins Charlotte Hounds as Team Sponsor
Charlotte, N.C. (April 17, 2013) - Charlotte Lacrosse LLC announced today that LACROSSE.COM has signed on as a new team sponsor of the Charlotte Hounds.
Elements of the partnership include signage, in-game promotions, print and social media. An annual co-branded fall lacrosse event, featuring a coaches clinic, recruiting seminar, social event and fan fest, is also in discussion.
“We are very excited to have LACROSSE.COM come on board as a team sponsor. Chad and his team have been super supportive from the start. We had them out last season to run a couple of test programs and they went really well for both parties. They really are giving back to the game,” said Wade Leaphart, Hounds Vice President and General Manager.
“LACROSSE.COM has been on board as a proud sponsor of Major League Lacrosse since the league’s inception in 1999. Over the years we have valued our strong relationship with the MLL and are excited to expand our reach this year with the Charlotte Hounds. We have worked closely with the Hounds over the last few years and you will not find a more passionate, dedicated group from the front office folks to the players and fans. The Charlotte Hounds game day experience is unmatched and LACROSSE.COM is excited to be part of it for many years to come,” added Chadwick Watson, LACROSSE.COM President.
