(April 10) — The York Revolution and Rutter’s announced today an agreement that makes the food and beverage company the exclusive provider of bottled teas, juices, and milk at the professional baseball team’s stadium, PeoplesBank Park.
The three-year agreement means Revolution fans attending the team’s 70 home games and people hosting non-game-day events at the ballpark during and out of the season will find a range of Rutter’s milk products, iced teas, lemonades, and juice flavors on PeoplesBank Park menus. Rutter’s beverages will be served at the ballpark’s concession stands, in its luxury skyboxes and rental suites, in the new Bullpen Balcony and Home Run Patio groups and hospitality areas, and at Closer’s Bar, the full-service bar debuting at PeoplesBank Park this season.
The deal also provides a new K-Man reward for fans. Through an agreement with Rutter’s convenience stores, fans in attendance will receive free mozzarella cheese sticks through the stores’ VIP Rewards program when Revolution pitchers strike out the K-Man of the game. Team officials said they look forward to teaching fans to substitute the old “bread sticks!” K-Man chant with “motz sticks!” when the team begins its season on April 28.
Fans will further benefit from the agreement through store coupons distributed at the end of each game at the ballpark exits.
“We’re excited to have this opportunity to put another York County business stamp on the Revs,” said Todd Rutter, President of Rutter’s Beverage Company. “Rutter’s is a leading beverage company and the leading convenience store in York County. It’s a home run for everyone!”
“We’re thrilled to bring these great local products to our fans while working with Rutter’s to drive product sales at the ballpark and traffic to their stores,” said Nate Tile, York Revolution Vice President of Business Development. “The best part about working for York’s home team is forming relationships like this and developing strategies that produce real results for our partners.”
Tile added that Revolution fans will benefit immediately from the newly formed partnership, noting that Rutter’s will be on site during Saturday’s Fan Fest to let fans sample the latest additions to the ballpark fare. Fan Fest begins at 11 a.m. and features a 2 p.m. exhibition game against the Somerset Patriots.
Tickets to Fan Fest, Opening Day on April 28, and the entire 2017 York Revolution season are available at www.yorkrevolution.com, by calling (717) 801-HITS, or by visiting the Apple Chevrolet Ticket Office at PeoplesBank Park.
