March 8, 2019 - Major League Lacrosse (MLL) - Ohio Machine News Release

COLUMBUS, Ohio- The Ohio Machine are proud to announce partnership extensions with Dr. Scott Kelly and Buckeye Interactive for the 2019 season. As part of the agreement, Dr. Scott Kelly will continue to be the team's official dentist and Buckeye Interactive will continue to be the team's official digital service provider.

"Dr. Kelly and Buckeye Interactive were both fantastic to work with during the 2018 season," Machine VP of Marketing and Business Development Brian Ciccone said. "Through the expanded partnerships, we are excited to create more opportunity for them to become more active throughout the lacrosse community this year."

Dr. Kelly will have a stronger on-site presence at Machine games, as well as a more integrated affiliation with the Central Ohio Youth Lacrosse League. Fans will continue to grin at the Smile Cam, and the first 500 fans to stop by Dr. Kelly's booth will receive co-branded toothbrushes at the Machine home opener on June 8th.

"I'm looking forward to expanding my involvement with the Ohio Machine and their youth league this season," Dr. Kelly said. "In addition to the Smile Cam, I will be providing custom mouth guards to all Ohio Machine players and extending the offer to make custom mouth guards for all COYLL participants. Go Machine!"

Buckeye Interactive will continue to assist in website design and development, social media strategy and training, email campaign and print promotions in an effort to enhance many aspects of the team's digital footprint.

"The Ohio Machine is exactly the type of growing, innovative organization Buckeye Interactive likes to support with our work," Brad Griffith said. "Our partnership gives us opportunities to brainstorm and implement creative uses of web and mobile technology and design to support the team's growth. Connecting with other partners and fans of the game has proven beneficial for us, and it's rewarding to be part of the Machine's growth and success. We can't wait for the season opener and to see how our work together helps both of our teams grow this year."

The Machine's partnerships with Dr. Kelly and Buckeye Interactive kicked off an exciting start to 2019, and both partners are looking forward to the start of the season in June.
