BOCA RATON, Fla. and CHICAGO, Jan. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Incapital, a leading underwriter and distributor of fixed income and other financial products, today announced that it will be an official sponsor of the Florida Panthers hockey team for the second consecutive year.
"This sponsorship will serve as an opportunity to support the Florida Panthers and allow us to create greater awareness for several important charities throughout South Florida," said John Radtke, CEO of Incapital. "Incapital has always made it a priority to collaborate with organizations outside of the financial arena, such as the Panthers. Through this partnership, we can engage with charitable organizations such as the Forgotten Soldiers and help spread awareness of their efforts in the local community."
The distribution of leading financial products is the foundation of Incapital's business model; as such, Incapital will recognize the Panther's player who 'distributes' the best assist each game. Incapital is also known for creating a pipeline of financial products that stretches from Wall Street to Main Street. The 'Incapital Pipeline Player of the Night' will honor an up and coming future star from the Panthers farm system.
Coinciding with this sponsorship, Incapital will honor and recognize the work of Forgotten Soldiers Outreach, an organization whose mission is to support and inspire deployed American soldiers. For the second straight year, Forgotten Soldiers will be honored during the pre-game National Anthem ceremony, during which one solider will be recognized and presented with a team jersey.
The sponsorship also includes in-game signage over the course of the Panther's season.
"Our support for the Florida Panthers and Forgotten Soldiers further strengthens our ties to the South Florida region that many of Incapital's employees call home," said Chris Clews, Executive Director of Marketing at Incapital. "Additionally, it gives us the opportunity to build upon our brand awareness campaign both locally and nationally with a well-established sports franchise."
This sponsorship follows several other sports marketing agreements with Incapital, including the Herbalife World Football Challenge this past summer, the 2012 BIG East men's basketball tournament, the Chicago Cubs and the sponsorship of several UFC athletes.
