Party City will be represented on all publicity materials surrounding the Cats’ upcoming season, including television, print and radio advertisements, printed schedules, tickets and more.
“We’re proud and excited to have Party City back as the presenting sponsor of the Panthers’ season after a great partnership last year,” said president & COO Michael R. Yormark. “We love to enjoy the success of our team with our fans, and there is no better company to help us celebrate than Party City.”
In addition to continuing its presenting sponsorship for the third consecutive Panthers season, Party City will also receive exposure through the Party City Patios, party themed gamenights, LED signage, an interactive kiosk in the BankAtlantic Center’s main lobby, collateral distribution, LobbyVision commercials, Pantherland bag stuffers, exposure on FloridaPanthers.com, entitlement of the party rooms at the Saveology.com Iceplex, and more. Party City will also sponsor the in-game Happy Birthday feature and the postgame victory celebration during home Panthers games at the BankAtlantic Center.
The Panthers enter a highly-anticipated 2012-13 season following one of the most successful years in franchise history. Florida posted a 38-26-18 mark and 94 points in 2011-12 – its most points since totaling 98 points in 1999-2000 (43-27-6-6). The Panthers earned the first division title in franchise history by capturing the Southeast Division Championship and secured the team’s first playoff birth since 2000. The Cats fell in double overtime of Game 7 in their first-round playoff series against the eventual Eastern Conference Champion New Jersey Devils.
The Panthers are set to open the 2012-13 season Oct. 13 against the Tampa Bay Lightning and will raise a Southeast Division Championship banner in a pre-game ceremony.
