United-sponsored ‘Scout Seats’ at U.S. Cellular Field Have Economy Plus(R) Flair

CHICAGO, April 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — Lucky Chicago White Sox fans seated in premium box seats sponsored by United at U.S. Cellular Field will view this season’s fastballs and backdoor sliders in the same stretch of leggy comfort provided by United Economy Plus(R) seating.

The new partnership with the White Sox brings United up to the plate in a big way: Just behind home plate, United’s “Scout Seats” offer hands-on wait-staff and exclusive behind-the-scenes views of the ballpark. The agreement also includes title sponsorship of a 5,000-square-foot private restaurant and lounge built near Gate 3, and eight-foot long United logos identifying the Scout Seat area and restaurant.

Chicago’s hometown airline is now a proud sponsor of all five of Chicago’s professional sports teams — Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, Cubs and of course the White Sox — a home run in this sports-mad town.

“United is committed to being the air carrier of choice for Chicagoans,” said John Tague, United’s executive vice president of Marketing, Sales and Revenue. “United is proud to provide extra legroom sky-high and in the home of the White Sox, U.S. Cellular Field. United and the White Sox are two Chicago-based companies that pride themselves on offering first-class customer service, and this partnership is an exciting opportunity for White Sox fans and United customers alike.”
