BOZEMAN, Montana – Bridger Steel and Bozeman Chamber of Commerce, a pair of Bobcat Athletics corporate partners, will have an increased presence in Bobcat Stadium beginning this fall, Quinn Pacini of Learfield’s Bobcat Sports Properties announced Friday.
Bridger Steel becomes sole sponsor of the stadium’s third and fourth floor suite and club areas. In its fifth year as a corporate partner with Bobcat Athletics, Bridger Steel plans to enhance those spaces with its nationally-renowned materials and designs while integrating its brand into the area.
“With our roots in Bozeman, Montana State has always been a great resource for Bridger Steel to find exceptional graduates,” said Bridger Steel’s Marketing and National Sales Director Steve Collins. ” We are excited to continue aligning with MSU, and working together to continue to support the families and friends that have helped make both organizations such a success. Sharing the same values of community outreach, responsible growth, and being examples in the region, makes our partnership with Montana State one that we’ve certainly been proud of having the last several years.”
The Stadium’s second floor hospitality space, operated primarily by Bobcat Sports Properties for corporate hospitality, becomes the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce Room. The new identities of both areas reflect the importance of the Bozeman business community’s partnerships in supporting the Bobcats, said Montana State Director of Athletics Leon Costello.
“It’s exciting when outstanding members of the business community support Bobcat Athletics,” Costello said. “We’re pleased that Bridger Steel and the Bozeman Chamber of Commerce will partner with us and support our student-athletes, coaches and their programs.”
According to President and CEO Daryl Schliem, “Bozeman Area Chamber of Commerce has expanded its partnership with MSU Athletics after having a two-year success with the Small Business Game Changer Marketing Package. In 2018, we’re pleased to announce the addition of Corporate Room Sponsor which will give Members of the BACC another great opportunity for networking at MSU Bobcat Football Games. GO CATS!”
Montana State’s 2018 football team is on public display for the first time Saturday when Bobcat Stadium hosts the Sonny Holland Classic presented by the Rocking R Bar. MSU’s spring game kicks off at 2 pm, with the scrimmage segment beginning around 2:30 pm.
Learfield manages the multimedia rights and sponsorship initiatives for nearly 130 collegiate properties nationwide, including Montana State, and is an industry leader for more than four decades.
