Naming Rights Deal Re-Names Existing Club at West Atrium

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. — Officials from Palace Sports & Entertainment have signed a five-year naming rights agreement with Casino Windsor, the Windsor-based casino resort. Per the agreement, the 13,000 square foot club located in The Palace of Auburn Hills’ West Atrium will now be called the Casino Windsor Club (formerly the Cingular Club). Financial details of the agreement were undisclosed.

The naming rights deal gives immediate name recognition for Casino Windsor at one of the most popular clubs within The Palace. The Casino Windsor Club name will be used on all signage at the club, directional signage in The Palace, all paper products used in the club and staff will wear Casino Windsor-branded uniforms. Temporary signage will be in place for Friday’s game against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Additional aspects of the naming rights deal include in-arena signage, television and radio advertisement, sponsorship of the Pistons post-game television show – Casino Windsor Wrap and exclusivity in the casino category for in-game radio broadcasts.

“Casino Windsor has established itself as one of the premier entertainment organizations in the area and we admire the way they service their guests,” said Tom Wilson, president and CEO of Palace Sports & Entertainment. “Our organizations are similar in that we both work very hard to provide the best entertainment experience for all of our guests. This partnership agreement is a wonderful opportunity for Casino Windsor to showcase their name and ultimately their brand.”

Membership benefits, including tickets, food, beverage, private parking and a private entrance, will not change with the Casino Windsor Club name change. Currently there are more than 500 members of the club.
