Forbes is reporting that the Seattle Mariners home stadium which has been known as Safeco Field since 1999, will be renamed via a new naming rights deal with T-Mobile beginning with the 2019 MLB season. The naming rights deal with Safeco Insurance — 20 years for $40 million — expired this past season and Safeco decided not to renew. The T-Mobile deal could be for upward of $6 million per year.

NHL, Navy Federal Alliance To Support Vets, Active Members At League Events

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

November 1, 2018
: In an alliance that will go beyond the usual brand awarenss element, the NHL has signed a multi-year deal that names Navy Federal Credit Union as the league’s “official military appreciation partner” in the U.S.

The partnership will recognize and support veterans, active duty service members and their families at NHL tentpole events, in broadcast and across the NHL’s digital platforms.

Financial terms of the alliance were not shared.

National activation begins Nov. 7 when NFCU serves as the presenting sponsor for the inaugural "NHL Veterans Appreciation Night," to air on NBCSN.

The NHL and Navy Federal Credit Union will honor retired service members during the Wednesday Night Hockey broadcast doubleheader, with the Pittsburgh Penguins at the Washington Capitals followed by the Nashville Predators at the Colorado Avalanche.

In addition, to commemorate Veterans Day and the new partnership, Vienna, Va.-based Navy Federal Credit Union will make a special donation to the American Freedom Foundation to support veterans with their career transitions.

As part of this partnership, the NHL and Navy Federal have launched “Stick Tap for Service,” a digital destination for veterans, active duty service members and their families to share personal stories of how hockey has impacted their lives.

During the season, Navy Federal will be an official partner and the presenting sponsor for military-themed ceremonial elements at the NHL Winter Classic, NHL All-Star Weekend and the NHL Stadium Series.

The NHL said that Navy Federal branding would be integrated into several league assets throughout the 2018-19 season, including dasher boards, Jumbotron and in-game broadcasts.

“It is important to us at the NHL that we show our active duty military, veterans and their families how much we appreciate them and all they have done for our country,” Max Paulsen, NHL director of business development, said via the league.

“Our new partnership with Navy Federal Credit Union gives us the chance to do that through both contributions to support transitioning veterans and a significant presence at our major events and game broadcasts. This is a great fit in terms of shared values and goals and we look forward to engaging Navy Federal with NHL fans in many meaningful ways.”

Navy Federal is in the process of changing CEOs.

“It's important at the NHL that we show our active duty military, veterans and their families how much we appreciate them and all they have done for our country."

In October, Mary McDuffie was named as new president and CEO of Navy Federal, effective Jan. 18, 2019.

McDuffie takes over from Cutler Dawson, who is retiring after 14 years with NFCU.

Established in 1933 with only seven members, Navy Federal now serves more than eight million members globally.

According to Pam Piligian, svp-marketing and communications for Navy Federal, “This partnership makes total sense for Navy Federal and the NHL — we share similar values, focused on forming meaningful relationships.

“There is a strong sense of camaraderie within the NHL, which is something that so many of our members are very familiar with from their time serving our country.”
