Wingstop Announces Partnerships with Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Angels
Batter up! Just in time for Opening Day, Wingstop has been named the Official Wings Of The Los Angeles Dodgers and a Proud Sponsor Of The Los Angeles Angels.
The sponsorship includes more than 60 Wingstop locations throughout Southern California, including restaurants in Los Angeles, Ventura, Riverside, San Bernardino and Orange Counties.
“Wings and sports are a perfect match. We’re excited to bring together wing fans and baseball fans and support the Dodgers and Angels this season,” said Danny Sonenshine, president of the Wingstop Southern California Advertising Association.
As part of the Dodgers “Official Wings” sponsorship, fans who sign up for “Dodgervision,” an in-game text program, receive a text for 5 free boneless wings with a regular seasoned fry or beverage purchase if the Dodgers hit a home run during the 6th inning at home games. The offer is good the following day.
The campaign will be supported with Fox Sports West TV spots, billboard ads, commercials on KLAC-AM radio and KTNQ-AM Spanish radio and in-stadium signage.
The Angels “Proud Sponsor” partnership will include a full page ad in the game program, in-stadium baseline signage, pre-game spots on Fox Sports West, radio spots on KLAA-AM Angels Radio and KWKW-AM Spanish radio.
“Wingstop sells more than 100,000 wings daily in Southern California,” added Sonenshine. “We have some of the most loyal wing and sports fans around and look forward to cheering on the Dodgers and Angels this season.”
