SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that new Managing Partners Cliff Viner and Stu Siegel will welcome fans to the BankAtlantic Center as they arrive for the Florida Panthers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins game on Monday, Nov. 23. Chairman Viner and CEO Siegel will spend pregame on the BankAtlantic Center’s main plaza level, in effect ushering in an era of accessibility for fans, media and partners that will also include regular town hall meetings, hosting fans and business prospects in the owner’s suite, e-mail messages, blogs, suite visits, weekly appearances on the Panthers Insider radio show every Saturday on 790 the Ticket, meet-and-greets and more.
“As I mentioned during Monday’s press conference it’s important that Panthers fans know that we feel both a personal and professional responsibility to run a first class organization and to achieve success both on and off the ice,” Viner said. “A huge part of that responsibility is making ourselves accessible to all of our constituents, so that they feel like they are a part of the Florida Panthers family.”
“Not only are Cliff and I local owners who live and work in the South Florida area, but we look at the Florida Panthers as our hometown team,” Siegel said. “We are Panthers fans the same way our season ticket holders, suite holders and fan club members are. We want to be right next to our fans, cheering wins, lamenting losses, and working to build a hockey team that all of South Florida can be proud of.”
