Bronco Athletics, Albertsons Renew Partnership for Football, Basketball Through 2015-16
BOISE, Idaho – Boise State Athletics, and its multimedia rights partner Bronco Sports Properties, are pleased to announce that they have entered into a three-year agreement with Albertsons to be the “Official Grocer of the Broncos.”
“Albertsons has been a tremendous supporter of Boise State Athletics over the years, and we’re grateful for their ongoing commitment to the student-athletes and university athletic programs,” said Mark Coyle, Boise State’s Athletic Director.
During the football season, Albertsons and the Idaho Foodbank will again team up to tackle hunger in our community through the “Sacks for Hunger” program. For every sack recorded by the Broncos defense during the regular season, Albertsons will donate $500 to the Idaho Foodbank to help feed those in need.
In addition, each Treasure Valley Albertsons store will again be the home of the “Bronco Nation Tailgate Headquarters” that features food, beverages and Bronco branded tailgate supplies that are perfect for game day.
As the “Official Grocer of the Broncos,” Albertsons support extends beyond the gridiron to all athletic programs. The company will be featured in Bronco Stadium, Taco Bell Arena, football and basketball radio broadcasts, various social media outlets, and the television broadcasts Coach Pete Live, Inside Bronco Basketball and Inside Bronco Football with Coach Pete airing on KTVB Channel 7 and re-airings on KTVB2.
“Albertsons is pleased to continue our relationship with Boise State Athletics,” said Susan Morris, President, Albertsons Intermountain Division. “Like so many of our customers, we are proud to share our hometown with such a distinguished athletic program and we look forward to serving Bronco Nation for many years to come. In addition, it is our pleasure to support Idaho Foodbank’s mission to feed the hungry through the ‘Sacks for Hunger’ program.”
