National Car Rental announced Tuesday that it has signed a new sponsorship agreement making the company the official car rental partner of the Boston Red Sox through 2021.
With the addition of the Red Sox to National’s lineup, the car rental company is now the official partner of several Major League Baseball teams, including the Los Angeles Angels, Houston Astros, St. Louis Cardinals, New York Mets, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, Kansas City Royals and Chicago White Sox.
As part of the partnership with the Red Sox, Boston fans heading to Fenway Park will see in-stadium signage above the iconic Green Monster outfield wall and behind home plate. In addition, Emerald Club Members and their guests will be able to use a dedicated entry line at the ballpark.
National will also have a presence in the Royal Rooters Club and will sponsor the National Call to the Bullpen during all regular season home games.
“We have a passion for baseball and are proud to support our newest MLB team – the Boston Red Sox – as their official car rental partner,” National vice president Rob Connors said in a statement. “We look forward to being a part of the Boston fan experience and offering our Emerald Club members exclusive entrance to Fenway Park through a dedicated express gate.”
The agreement between the Red Sox and National will also feature the car rental company in select radio and television broadcasts of home games as well as each edition of Red Sox Magazine. Starting in 2018, Emerald Club Members will have access to Red Sox ticket pre-sales.
“National Car Rental has a history and connection with a number of baseball teams and we are thrilled they have expanded on that relationship by partnering with us,” Red Sox executive vice president Troup Parkinson said in a statement. “Their focus on providing their customers with unique services was a focal point of our partnership, and we are pleased to be providing their Emerald Club members with a special express entrance to Fenway Park.”
