Delta soars with Seattle team partnerships

Delta Air Lines has reached commercial agreements with NFL American football team the Seattle Seahawks and Major League Soccer franchise Seattle Sounders.

Delta becomes the official airline partner to the two teams and acquires the naming rights to the club level seating and hospitality area at their home stadium – CenturyLink Field. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

CenturyLink Field will also bear Delta Air Lines signage and branding throughout.

Delta Sky360 Club ticket holders will be afforded a private entrance and can enter the stadium three hours before kick-off, where their game-day experience is enhanced by flat-screen HD TVs, free Wi-Fi coverage and a range of bars and restaurants.

Seattle Seahawks are the 12th NFL team to establish a marketing relationship with Delta, while it is also the official airline partner of English Premier League football club Chelsea.

Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge stadium is a Delta 360 venue, along with iconic New York sporting locations Madison Square Garden and Yankee Stadium.
