New Mets Stadium Gets Sharp With Hundreds of TVs
The New York Mets have reached another new sponsorship deal for their new stadium- this time, with no TARP money required.
Citi Field, which will open in Queens next month, will feature more than 800 Aquos TV monitors from Sharp, the company and team announced. The TVs will be placed throughout the stadium, including a 108-inch screen in the ballpark's lobby and several others in various suites and event spaces. In addition, Sharp has become a sponsor of the Mets/Sharp Electronics Student-Athlete Leadership Conference Series, and provide signage throughout the stadium.
The Aquos is the official HDTV of major league baseball; the Yankees, who are opening their own new ballpark this spring, reached a deal with Sony.
