ALBANY, NY – The Albany FireWolves of the National Lacrosse League today announced that Elevation Ten Thousand, an award-winning marketing firm based in Latham, will become the organization’s first Founding Partner and build on the growing support from area businesses. The partnership with Elevation Ten Thousand is a significant opportunity to make FireWolves games a premier family entertainment event in the Capital Region.
“As the leading creative advertising agency in area, Elevation Ten Thousand is the perfect partner for the FireWolves organization as we continue to bring our fast-paced, action packed box lacrosse games to the greater Capital Region,” said Chris Porreca, President of the FireWolves. “Elevation has a passion for the Capital District, and they know how to create excitement for and at our games. We are looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”
The FireWolves, who moved to Albany in 2021 from Connecticut, enjoy strong and growing support from the local business community. The Founding Partner Level, established this year, is the highest sponsorship tier for the FireWolves and Elevation Ten Thousand is the first Capital Region business to join at this level. As a Founding Partner, Elevation Ten Thousand will receive recognition on game day signage within the MVP Arena, outside the arena on the state-of-the-art LED Board, and recognition on various forms of team messaging.
Elevation Ten Thousand President David Miclette said, “We are thrilled to partner with the Albany FireWolves and look forward to combining our innovative marketing expertise with the exciting and fast-paced FireWolves as they look to establish themselves as a box lacrosse powerhouse in the National Lacrosse League.”
As a Founding Partner, Elevation Ten Thousand will bring the company’s marketing and advertising horsepower to the FireWolves organization and help amplify their community outreach. Elevation will provide game and event promotions, produce exciting and engaging videos for the MVP arena for gameday as well as television commercials, digital media strategy and advertising, and social media communications. The FiresWolves are already using Elevation’s digital design services to display messages and promotions on the new state-of-the-art LED lighting in the MVP arena.
The multi-year agreement between the FireWolves and Elevation Ten Thousand establishes Elevation as an official merchandise partner of the box lacrosse franchise. Elevation is hosting kiosks at each Albany FireWolves home game and fans can also purchase merchandise online.
