SUNRISE, Fla. - The Florida Panthers announced today the formation of Panthers All-Access, a new community based initiative designed to make the Florida Panthers the most fan-friendly team in South Florida. The team has also unveiled a new logo for Panthers All-Access that will serve a stamp of authenticity that will adorn all the club's marketing and promotional materials, as related to this new program.
This new program gives Panthers fans throughout South Florida unprecedented access to the team through a variety of programs that include: Cats Cookouts, Hockey House Calls, the Panthers Beach Bash, Game On Carnival, Dinner with the Stars, Hometown Hockey Tour, Skate with the Pros Hockey Schools, My Host Program, Train with the Pros, Kids Month, post-game meet and greets and much more. Panthers All-Access also includes the numerous broadcast initiatives that surround behind the scenes locker room access and Panthers Insider television program, along with player Internet blogs and on-line chats.
"Panthers All-Access was developed to give our fans the ultimate sports experience and to learn more about who our players are off the ice," Sunrise Sports & Entertainment chief operating officer Michael Yormark said. "This new program allows our loyal fans unparalleled access to interact with our team and coaching staff, as we establish ourselves as the most fan-friendly team in South Florida and the National Hockey League. We will continue to create new opportunities to put our players in front of our fans on a more personal level."
"It is great to interact with our loyal fans at these events," C Olli Jokinen said. "These events give us the opportunity to thank our fans, while also getting to know them a little better. There seems to be a pretty big buzz building up around the start of the season and we look forward to a sell-out crowd at our home opener. I would like to thank the entire Panthers organization for their continued hard work in marketing and promoting hockey in South Florida."
