“The Potomac Nationals cannot be more proud of the relationship that has developed over the years with F.H.

In executing a founding partnership agreement with the Potomac Nationals, F.H. Furr will receive a multitude of versatile, dominant-identity marketing elements to trademark their association with the team.

Furr will be privy to prominent brand exposure through the conduit of P-Nats Baseball marketing assets including but not limited to: designation of an official marketing tagline and naming rights to “F.H. Furr Gates,” exterior stadium signage on a founding partner placard and a digital marquee facing Interstate-95, interior stadium signage in ballpark restrooms and dedicated founding partnership wall, a video board commercial, advanced advertising in the form of co-branded media campaigns and co-promotions, print advertising such as logo inclusion on the cover of all souvenir programs, promotional tabling opportunities, official Potomac Nationals website prime logo/link banner, and hospitality underscored by full season private suite usage, VIP parking passes, one group outing night, and the opportunity to host one private event per year in the stadium’s Club Lounge.

Potomac Nationals Chairman and CEO, Art Silber said: “The Potomac Nationals are truly fortunate to have a high quality partner like F.H. Furr joining us as we create the finest sports facility in the area. F.H. Furr’s commitment to the area over the last 30 years mirrors ours, and together we will continue to deliver the greatest level of fan experience possible for many years to come as we move towards completing the dream of a new ballpark for our hundreds of thousands of fans, our invaluable corporate sponsors, and the future stars of the Washington Nationals.”
