Annapolis, MD – The Chesapeake Bayhawks of Major League Lacrosse (MLL) and the Greene Turtle Sports Bar and Grille have signed a single-year agreement for partnership beginning with the 2011 season.
“We are very excited to be partnering with the Greene Turtle,” said Bayhawks’ President Dave Cottle. “The Chesapeake Bayhawks are proud to be associated with one of the fastest growing franchises on the east coast and their reputation as a major presence in the lacrosse community is mutually beneficial.”
On May 14th, the Greene Turtle will help the Bayhawks kick off their 2011 season by giving away co-branded rally towels at the gates. Fans will receive a rally towel which will commemorate the Bayhawks 2010 MLL Championship title. The Bayhawks will host the Rochester Rattlers at Navy-Marine Corps Memorial Stadium for the home opener, and a fireworks show will immediately follow the game to wrap-up the festivities.
In addition to the rally towel giveaway, the Greene Turtle will host three guest appearances from Bayhawks midfielder Ben Hunt and the Hawkettes, the Bayhawks dance team. The appearances will be held at the Greene Turtle locations in Hanover, Columbia, and Edgewater and give fans a chance to meet Hunt and get autographs.
Fans can also bring their ticket stubs from any Bayhawks’ home game to the Columbia, Edgewater, and Hanover locations and receive 25% off their check of $10.00 or more at the bar and grille. The Greene Turtle will also have a prominent presence in signage throughout the stadium, including field signage, Jumbotron promotions and a presence in Vendor Village.
“The Greene Turtle has always been very heavily involved in the lacrosse community,” Greene Turtle’s Director of Marketing Anne Torregrossa stated. “We are proud to partner with a first class and well-rounded organization like the Chesapeake Bayhawks. We are excited to increase brand awareness in a new, young, and active demographic through the Bayhawks’ fan base.”
