Rancho Cucamonga, CA - The Rancho Cucamonga Quakes are proud to announce they have entered into a long-term partnership agreement with Southern California-based company, LoanMart, which will give the Quakes' home a brand new name.
The home of the Quakes will now be known as LoanMart Field and will host its first regular season game on Thursday, April 4th, as the Quakes take on the Lake Elsinore Storm in the first game of the 2013 California League regular season.
LoanMart has been a partner of the Quakes, as well as many of the teams in the California League since 2012.
As part of the naming rights partnership, there will be new LoanMart promotions, as well as signage throughout the ballpark, both inside and outside the stadium. LoanMart will continue to be the exclusive sponsor of the LoanMart Strikeout promotion, as now with each batter that the Quakes strike out, a $5 donation will be made to the Rancho Cucamonga Community Foundation, on LoanMart's behalf. In addition, the Quakes and LoanMart will team up to award three $1,000 scholarships to deserving local students within the community.
Over the life of the ten-year agreement, the naming rights partnership deal will allow the Quakes to continue to invest back into the city-owned facility, helping to improve it for all the many different local groups that use it.
"We're proud to welcome LoanMart on board as the title sponsor of LoanMart Field," said Vice-President-General Manager Grant Riddle. "Their naming rights partnership will give us exciting opportunities to make continued upgrades to LoanMart Field for years to come. Their commitment to this community will be evident every time someone steps foot through the gates of LoanMart Field."
As a way of sharing the excitement with the fans, of the opening of LoanMart Field, LoanMart will be providing free parking for fans on Opening Night, as a "Grand Gesture" upon their arrival.
"We're excited to be a part of the Quakes and San Bernardino County in a big way," said LoanMart Director of Marketing Colby Estes. "Having the iconic home of the Quakes be called LoanMart Field is part of LoanMart's strategy to build relationships with the community for a very long time. Go Quakes!"
