Fort Lauderdale, FL - The Fort Lauderdale Strikers announced, on Friday, a kit sponsorship from the Broward County Fair Gravitron, assuring the carnival ride has a place on the front of their kit for the next four years.
The Strikers stated that the partnership with the Gravitron would enhance their local community ties as well as allow the team to pass on the benefits to their fan-base.
"We are in talks with the Gravitron to allow our fanbase buy one get one free tickets to the ride on Wednesday afternoons, as long as the line isn't that long." stated Paulo Cesso, owner of the Strikers. "We are also negotiating a 10% off coupon for a roll of 250 tickets for all carnival games at the fair. That is a savings of over three dollars!"
While the Gravitron sponsorship may not propel the Strikers into the upper echelon of kit sponsors in North America, Mr Cesso is confident that it will help increase their exposure stating, "We are also re-painting the ride so that it will spin in Strikers colors, as well as sponsoring the broom used to clean the ride and the bucket used to house the vomit that people spew out when they get too dizzy. Millions of people visit the Broward County Fair and we want to be the team who sponsors the trashcan used to pick up your puke. It's our vertical integration branding at its best."
