Sloan Park is the new official name of the Cubs facility which opened last spring. Sloan, a global brand based in the Chicago area, joins the team as a Legacy Partner and the Official Water Efficiency Partner of the Chicago Cubs.
Financial terms of the partnership were not disclosed. Reports Thursday morning indicated the partnership is for 10 years and will pay the Cubs “seven figures annually.”
Sloan Valve Company becomes the sixth Legacy Partner of the Chicago Cubs, joining Anheuser-Busch, ATI Physical Therapy, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Under Armour and Wintrust.
Sloan has been a leading global manufacturer of water-efficient solutions for 109 years. As a fourth-generation family business, Sloan prides itself on promoting a healthy environment through water conservation and understands what it means to build a legacy. The Cubs will utilize Sloan’s products in the newly-named Sloan Park in Mesa and target integration inside Wrigley Field and its surrounding facilities as part of the 1060 Project construction—helping the organization expand its ongoing sustainability efforts.
In addition to the Spring Training facility naming rights, Sloan will have a branding presence at Wrigley Field, including fixed signage in the visiting team’s bullpen.
“Teaming up with Sloan—another family-owned company based in Chicago with more than a century of history—is an important move for the Cubs as we look to provide clean and sustainable water solutions for our facilities in both Mesa and Chicago,” Cubs Chairman Tom Ricketts said in the release.
“Sloan is passionate about providing intelligent water solutions to the communities we serve. We are excited to have a major presence both in Chicago and Mesa to authentically convey the message of water sustainability,” Sloan President Jim Allen said in the release.
