Yankee Stadium gets new look from Delta in 2016

The “Yankee Stadium” sign in left field will no longer be the biggest, most prominent sign at the ballpark. According to the NY Post, the Yankees have reached an eight-year extension with Delta Air Lines, which includes putting up the Delta logo and name in huge 14-foot tall letters.

Delta’s sign will match that of the “Yankee Stadium” sign in left field and give the fans inside the stadium a new skyline view from their seats. This is the first time the Yankees have agreed with any sponsor on something so big to be displayed in the House that George Built.

There are no details on the monetary figures agreed upon, but it’s rumored that Delta will pay more than $1 million per year. Delta’s deal will be similar to the one that the Mets have, and will go through the 2023 season.

“This prominent, permanent signage is a testament to our support of and dedication to this great team and its amazing fans, including so many of our loyal New York customers and our own more than 10,000 New York-based employees, We’re not just in the business of being New York’s number one airline; we’re a reliable partner on the ground and in the air.” -Gail Grimmett, Delta’s Senior Vice President – New York

According to Thomas Barrabi from Fox News Sports, Delta will also have a “SKY360” branded seating lounge, as well as other displays around the stadium. There will also be promotional events with Yankees fans throughout the season.

The illuminated sign will be visible to all fans during every event and private gathering in the stadium, such as the New Era Pinstripe Bowl and other college football games, NYCFC matches, trade shows and press events.” -Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President of Corporate Sales and Sponsorships

This will take some time for Yankees’ fans to get used to but the Yankees and Delta seem very excited for it.
