I’m pleased to announce that Consumer Cellular was selected as the exclusive telecommunications partner of the US Figure Skating Championships and an official sponsor of the US Figure Skating organization.
Our sponsorship will run through 2015 and cover a range of figure skating events including the US Figure Skating Championship, Skating Spectacular, European, Four Continents and World Championships, as well as Skate America and the ISU Grand Prix.
We’re especially proud of this sponsorship because U.S. Figure Skating is one of the strongest and largest governing bodies within the winter Olympic movement. It is also the national governing body for the sport of figure skating in the United States.
Ultimately, however, it’s all about our hard-working athletes.
You don’t have to know the difference between an Axel and a Twizzle or a Loop and a Lutz to appreciate the commitment these young and very talented athletes make every day when representing the United States in various competitions.
As the telecommunications sponsor, we’re dedicated to helping people stay in touch with their families and friends, helping them to share all of life’s moments— both big and small. As a proud sponsor, we commend all of the athletes, families and fans for their dedication to the sport.
And don’t forget to watch the “Four Continents Figure Skating Championships,” which will be televised on Saturday, February 21st, on NBC to see how our US skaters fare against international competition. Please check your local listings for the broadcast time in your area.
We hope our sponsorship will help give talented United States figure skaters and their families a lift during the strenuous months of competition ahead.
Go Team USA!!!
