The Rhode Island College Corporate Sponsorship Program is a valuable asset
to the RIC Athletic Department as it helps provide revenue and support for
all of the collegeís varsity sports. RIC Corporate Sponsors receive
exposure through venue signage, game program and media guide advertising,
internet broadcast commercials, public address announcements, game
sponsorship opportunities, web-site advertising, special event sponsorships,
and more. Thanks to our Corporate Sponsors, Rhode Island College Athletics
is able to provide all of its teams with additional opportunities to promote
their sports, as well as increase their operating budgets.
Become a part of the game with signage opportunities at Rhode Island Collegeís Athletic Venues. As part of the corporate sponsorship program your business will receive signage at these four venues:
- The Murray Center: The Murray Center is home to the RIC Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, Intramurals, and Recreation. It hosts home contests for menís and womenís basketball, womenís volleyball, wrestling, and gymnastics. Everyone attending a contest in the Murray Center sees corporate sponsorship advertising banners as they enter the facility. Along with RICís varsity events, the Murray Center hosts a number of outside events that draws over 60,000 people annually.
- Dayna A. Bazar Softball Field: Signage is placed on the outfield fence for maximum exposure opportunity. The Bazar Softball Field was selected by the Coaches Association as the best venue for softball in Rhode Island and was also the host of the 2007 Little East Softball Championship.
- Anchorman Baseball Field: Signage is placed on the outfield fence for maximum exposure opportunity. The Baseball complex plays host over 125 public contests, including the American Legion State Championship Tournament.
- Robert J. ďBobĒ Black Track and Soccer Complex: Your sign will be placed in a location that will receive exposure to all facility users. Signage location is based on availability. The track and soccer complex is home to RIC menís and womenís soccer, menís and womenís outdoor track, and womenís lacrosse. The complex is also home to the Rhode Island Interscholastic Championships for Boys & Girls soccer and lacrosse.
