The Chicago Cubs and Nuveen Investments today announced a Legacy Partnership that extends the long-term relationship between the two organizations. Nuveen, a leading global provider of investment services to institutions and individual investors, has been a partner of the Cubs since 2005.
The Cubs did not announce the length of the deal and financial terms were not disclosed. The team’s other Legacy Partners have signed 10 year contracts.
As part of the expanded Legacy Partnership, Nuveen continues to hold naming rights to the Nuveen Investments Suite Level and the company will be featured with signage behind the visitors’ on-deck area, exposure on the new left field video board and other prominent in-park signage. The partnership also provides Nuveen with opportunities to host clients at Cubs games and other special events at Wrigley Field.
“Nuveen is excited to continue its long-standing support of one of Chicago’s most recognized institutions,” said Chairman and CEO of Nuveen Investments, John Amboian in a statement.
“Our Legacy Partners have shown a long-term commitment and belief in the Chicago Cubs, and we’re proud to see Nuveen continue their support that traces beyond this newly expanded relationship,” said Cubs Executive Chairman Tom Ricketts in a statement.
“We’re pleased to have Nuveen on board as a vital partner as we embark on the greatest journey in sports.”
Nuveen becomes the eighth Legacy Partner of the Chicago Cubs, joining American Airlines, Anheuser-Busch, ATI Physical Therapy, Sloan Valve Company, Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Under Armour and Wintrust.
