(October 17, 2018) — The York Revolution announced today that UPMC Pinnacle has signed a three-year agreement making it the naming sponsor of the highly anticipated new hospitality venue at PeoplesBank Park. The 1741 Club presented by UPMC Pinnacle is scheduled to open in the spring of 2019.
Combining the best elements of fans’ favorite restaurants with the excitement and fun of Revolution baseball, the 1741 Club presented by UPMC Pinnacle will provide a flexible, all-inclusive game experience – including food and beverage service – that will expand options for business and individual consumers alike.
Reached late in the Revolution’s 2018 season, the agreement is the latest element of what Revolution officials called an invaluable relationship with UPMC Pinnacle. UPMC Pinnacle has previously sponsored some of the team’s most popular theme nights and fan giveaways.
“The 1741 Club presented by UPMC Pinnacle is, frankly, the most exciting addition to PeoplesBank Park since it was built,” said Revolution President Eric Menzer. “UPMC Pinnacle’s sponsorship is a pivotal part of bringing that to life, of helping us once again adapt to the needs and interests of our hospitality clients. We are thrilled to grow our relationship with UPMC Pinnacle in this way and to further partner in giving fans the best day ever each and every time they come the ballpark.”
“UPMC Pinnacle is proud to present the new 1741 Club at PeoplesBank Park,” said Michael Gaskins, president of UPMC Pinnacle’s Southern Region. “We have enjoyed being a part of Revolution baseball since the team was founded. Just as UPMC Pinnacle is bringing life-changing medicine to you, we are excited to bring a game-changing experience to York and our hometown Revs team.”
As the exclusive sponsor of the 1741 Club, UPMC Pinnacle will be featured in elements of the space itself as well as in all references to the club in paid advertising, social media, and in-house promotion at the ballpark.
Construction of the club began today following a brief groundbreaking ceremony.
