COLUMBUS, OH – The Columbus Blue Jackets announced today that the Dispatch Media Group has upgraded its corporate partnership to become the hockey club’s latest Championship Partner. The cornerstone of the enhanced partnership is name entitlement to the Blue Jackets’ practice facility attached to Nationwide Arena, which will now be known as The Dispatch Ice Haus.

“The Dispatch Media Group has been a very loyal corporate partner since the team’s inception and we greatly appreciate their commitment to elevate this long-standing relationship to the Championship Partner level,” said Larry Hoepfner, Columbus Blue Jackets Senior Vice-President of Business Operations.

Other elements of the multi-year, fully integrated sponsorship include interior and prominent exterior signage, print media, promotional rights, and a branded concourse destination within Nationwide Arena which will be named Dispatch Driveway.

“We’re proud to have our name so prominently positioned in the Arena District and in Nationwide Arena,” said Phil Pikelny, Vice President of Corporate Marketing and New Media for The Dispatch Printing Company.

“All of our companies are excited with the opportunities that come from our enhanced relationship with the Columbus Blue Jackets. We’re also excited about the many activities and promotions being planned for The Dispatch Ice Haus, itself. Both venues give us a chance to interact with our neighbors throughout Central Ohio.”

The Dispatch Ice Haus makes the Columbus Blue Jackets the only team in the NHL that has its practice rink located at the same location where it plays its games. The 63,000-square foot facility is located on the west side of Nationwide Arena. It serves as the practice home of the Blue Jackets and features fixed seating for 750 people and an overall capacity of 1,500.

In addition, the facility is also home to the AAA Ohio Blue Jackets Hockey Program, which includes three Tier I AAA teams, and numerous Central Ohio high school teams. The facility is open to the public and offers access to youth hockey, figure skating and public skating. For more information about the Dispatch Ice Haus, call (614) 246-3380.
