Blues Extend Deal with Anheuser-Busch
The St. Louis Blues and Scottrade Center today announced that they have extended their marketing agreement with St. Louis based Anheuser-Busch. The deal extends the relationship between two of St. Louis’ most recognizable brands and includes alcohol beverage advertising exclusivity on St. Louis Blues radio on KMOX, arena signage and grants Anheuser-Busch rights usage of the famed “Blue Note” mark. Additionally, the deal includes the introduction of the new Bud Light Blue Zone club at Scottrade Center. Terms of the multi-year deal were not available due to company policies.

“We are extremely pleased that one of St. Louis’ most identifying companies has decided to continue its investment in the St. Louis Blues and Scottrade Center,” said Peter McLoughlin, CEO, St. Louis Blues Enterprises. “It is gratifying to have a company such as Anheuser-Busch give us their support as it validates our belief that we are headed in the right direction.”

“As a St. Louis based company, we recognize what the team means to this community,” said Tony Ponturo, Vice President, Global Media and Sports Marketing Anheuser-Busch, Inc. “Many of our employees are Blues fans and we have a long and storied history with the Blues. We look forward to continuing that tradition for years to come.”

The new Bud Light Blue Zone club replaces the old “Club Restaurant” located on the third level of Scottrade Center. The Bud Light Blue Zone club will be open to all St. Louis Blues ticket holders in Club eligible locations (club seats, plaza center seats and seats within the first-four rows off of the ice), offering a full dinner menu and two bars.

Bud Light has been the Official Beer Sponsor of the NHL since 1998, and also sponsors 21 of the league’s 24 domestic teams.
