CHICAGO–The Chicago Cubs have finally done it. They have decided to use what little space on the outfield walls is not covered in ivy as ad space. The team signed a multiyear deal with Under Armour Wednesday, and they are fielding offers from other companies once the deal runs out.
Armor won’t protect you, McDonough. Even when it’s spelled all British-like.
The announcement by the Cubs has generated quite a bit of interest in the ad space. “We’ve already signed several contracts in the years following the expiration of the Under Armour deal,” Cubs interim president Jon McDonough said. “Several St. Louis-based companies have already purchased the space. For example, ‘Sofa King Wee Todd Did’ will have an ad in the future, and we’re working on ad space for wesuck.com, suckadeek.com, and funkingchumps.com. We’re very excited to have the extra revenue.”
