The Heroes will also be holding a Sponsor Fair the same day.

There is no cost to attend this event, and all local business owners and Heroes fans are invited to join us to meet our coaches and staff, purchase season and game tickets, and hear about the unique opportunities to partner with the only professional football team in the West Virginia.

The Heroes have developed a sponsorship program which can be tailored to fit any sized budget, including the smallest of businesses. Opportunities include, but are not limited to, field naming rights, dasherboard banners, promotional giveaways, program ads, pocket schedules, sponsoring players, coaches, mascots, and the dance team, and radio advertisements.

In the offseason, the Huntington Heroes and ESPN Radio 930 reached an agreement whereby all Heroes games in 2008 will be broadcast live on ESPN Radio 930. This agreement will provide additional exposure for our players and more importantly, our sponsor partners.

On the subject of sponsorship, the Huntington Heroes, and all sports teams at any level, can not survive without support from its local business community. "To keep the cost of attending a Heroes game affordable for all fans and put a winning product on and off the field, revenue needs to be generated from outside sources." said Huntington Heroes General Manager Chip Rossetti.

"Our goal is to give every business owner in the Tri-State the ability to advertise their business with the Heroes" stated Rossetti. "We understand the importance of having your product or service known throughout the community. The Heroes provide a special opportunity to be associated with a Professional Sports Team at an affordable price, and at the same time drive traffic to your establishment. We're anxious to help promote your company, but we need your help as well."

Representatives of the Huntington Heroes will be on hand at the Sponsor Fair to review information and customize a sponsorship package that fits your organization. However, if you can not attend this event and/or you would like to discuss sponsorship of the Heroes prior to the Fair, then please feel free to contact Chip Rossetti to set up an appointment with one of our representatives.

All local business owners who pre-register for this event will receive two free tickets to attend any Heroes home game of their choice, and get a chance to win Heroes merchandise raffled off during the afternoon.

Call (304)781-6800 to reserve a place for your business. Please visit our home on the web ( to purchase season and game tickets, and keep up with the latest news on the Huntington Heroes.
