La Porte Company Strikes Deal with Cubs

(South Bend, IN) - A high-speed internet provider from La Porte is teaming up with the South Bend Cubs. The team has announced a naming rights deal with Surf Broadband Solutions, which will sponsor the lawn seating area in the right field at Four Winds Field.


"We're really excited to kick off a new partnership by bringing on Surf Broadband Solutions and have them sponsor an area of the ballpark that families absolutely love," said South Bend Cubs President Joe Hart. "We're looking forward to a long-term relationship."

The lawn seating in the right field provides an area for families and people of all ages to relax, bring out a blanket and lawn chair and enjoy the game comfortably with a terrific view of Four Winds Field. The right field seating is also close to the splash pad, playground, and Ben's Pretzels inside the stadium.


"This partnership reaffirms Surf's emergence in the Great Lakes Region as the top choice for Fiber Optic Internet while strengthening our commitment to the communities we serve," said Surf Broadband Solutions Chief Marketing Officer Lana Frank.

Franks said the company, through its sponsorship, will be able to participate in Cubs programs that support education and armed forces initiatives.


According to team officials, opening night features many promotions, including an ax-throwing station, live band, and magnet schedule giveaway to the first 2,000 fans through the gates and fireworks.


Surf Broadband Solutions is nearly finished with turning La Porte into a "Gig City" by providing access to the internet at much higher speeds from anywhere in the community.


The South Bend Cubs open the season at home on April 8 at 7:05 p.m
