When did the Acela Club's deal end? Is a Porsche going to run in the stupid Ford Car race now? In my opinion it seems some weird things are going on behind the scenes.
FLUSHING, N.Y., August 9, 2016 – Porsche Cars North America, Inc. and the New York Mets announced today that they have agreed upon a multi-year partnership.
Two prominent high-end Citi Field assets, the Empire Level Suites and the former Acela Club, will now be affiliated with Porsche. Each space will feature a Porsche activation area including cars and retail products tied to the luxury auto maker. Select Mets ticket and suite holders will receive invites to Porsche test track driving events in the tri-state area while local dealers have access to team and player activities not open to the general public.
“We are excited to partner with Porsche, an iconic global brand,” said Vice President, Corporate Partnerships Wes Engram. "Like the Mets, Porsche has a very loyal fan base and is the perfect brand to bring to Citi Field to accentuate our world-class facility.”
"The New York Mets are a world-class institution known for winning both on and off the field,” said Jacob Harb, Vice President Area East, for Porsche. “On behalf of our Tri-State Dealer partners, we are pleased to align our dynamic brand and products with such a renowned organization.”
