NEW YORK - Red Bull Corporate has announced, on Wednesday, a tentative deal with the New Jersey tourism industry to rename Red Bull Arena to Visit New Jersey Arena.
"We feel that it behooves us to bring in more sponsorship dollars to allow Red Bull New York to spend more money on players and coaches going forward" said General Manager of Red Bull New York (RBNY) Marc de Grandpre. "The New Jersey tourism industry reached out to us with the idea of renaming the arena with something that would be beneficial to the local area as well as an organization that is deeply rooted in the New York/New Jersey metroplex."
The Chief Financial Officer of Red Bull New York, Luis Miguel Garcia, stated, "we think our fans are going to love Visit New Jersey Arena. It remains the crown jewel of stadiums across North America that have been built within the past 20 years as a soccer specific stadium and the sponsorship deal for Visit New Jersey Arena will allow us to build a sparkling financial future for Red Bull New York going forward."
The Nutmeg News spoke with Vic Rosen, the director of the New Jersey tourism industry, who had the following to say, "Harrison is a bustling hub of new business connections and places to meet and drink! We want everyone to know to visit New Jersey, the state of your dreams and with this sponsorship we will be able to remind everyone of that, every single game."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as it happens.
