Wireless Provider Upgrades Longstanding Partnership With SSE

SUNRISE, Fla. – Sunrise Sports & Entertainment announced today that longstanding marketing partner MetroPCS has become a Pillar Partner.

As part of this multi-year partnership MetroPCS will have dominant concourse and in-arena signage and is now an official partner of SSE, the Florida Panthers and the BankAtlantic Center. In addition, MetroPCS will provide cellular phones in all of the BankAtlantic Center suites, three courtesy phones in the WCI Communities Private Club, and will present the VIP welcome list before each Florida Panthers home game with their trademark jingle, "Hello, hello, hello."

Also, MetroPCS will receive all of the exclusive benefits and branding that comes with the Pillar Partner designation.
