RCN Becomes Sponsor of the Patriot Center


HERNDON, Va. - RCN Corporation has signed a two-year agreement to become an official sponsor of the Patriot Center in Fairfax, VA.

Located on the campus of Northern Virginia’s George Mason University, the Patriot Center is a 10,000-seat arena that hosts George Mason basketball games, commencement ceremonies, and a wide variety of performances and special events.

“We view the Patriot Center as an excellent multi-purpose venue for premiere events ranging from basketball games to concerts to family shows to trade shows,” said RCN President & CEO Peter Aquino. “We see this as a perfect fit. Our company prides itself on offering the most choice in cable TV, high-speed internet and phone services so customers can choose what works best for them, based on their lifestyle and budget.”

As part of the sponsorship, RCN will have signage, prominently displayed at various key locations inside the Center, which will be seen by attendees of more than 140 events and basketball games through out the year.

“We are truly pleased to welcome RCN as an official sponsor of the Patriot Center, said Patriot Center General Manager Barry Geisler. “We look forward to a long and mutually productive relationship.”

Earlier this month, RCN announced an official sponsorship with D.C. United. According to RCN Senior Vice President, Strategic & External Affairs Richard Ramlall, the company’s growing affiliation with local sports teams reflects its determination to have a positive presence in the community.

“RCN was formerly known as Starpower in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area,” Ramlall said. “With sponsorships that allow us to showcase RCN at D.C. United soccer games, Georgetown basketball games, and now at more than 140 Patriot Center concerts, community events and George Mason basketball games, RCN’s star power continues to grow.”
