Super 8 Signs On for Pro Rodeo Sponsorships
PARSIPPANY, N.J. (September 22, 2011) –
Demonstrating a continued commitment to the passions and interests of its guests, the Super 8® hotel brand today announced dual sponsorships of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, PRCA, and the Women’s Professional Rodeo Association, WPRA.
A long time supporter of professional rodeo events in Canada, the sponsorships are the first of their kind for the Super 8 brand in the United States.
"The Super 8 hotel brand has a great history of supporting the passions and interests of our guests, which is why I couldn’t be more excited to launch these newest sponsorships,” said John Valletta, president of the Super 8 brand. “With over 2,000 hotels, more than any other economy brand in the world, PRCA and WPRA members can rely on Super 8 hotels for clean, comfortable and affordable accommodations when they’re out on the road.”
As a result of the sponsorships, the Super 8 brand will have a major presence on www.prorodeo.com and provide the “Super 8 second clock” during the PRCA’s Xtreme Bulls GAC TV coverage.
“Travel costs, including lodging, are a major expense for our membership,” said PRCA commissioner Karl Stressman. “I’m excited about this partnership with the Super 8 brand because it will help our members save their hard earned money. With its thousands of hotels throughout the U.S., the Super 8 brand has locations near most of our 550 plus sanctioned rodeos. They can be found in big cities as well as small communities—just like the PRCA.”
In addition, the Super 8 brand will have a significant presence at Justin Boots Championships and the WPRA World Finals Rodeo.
“The Super 8 brand is a great match for rodeo as its very family oriented, much like our sport,” said Jimmie Munroe, WPRA president. “I know this will be a great relationship for both organizations.”
