DETROIT –The Detroit Lions and Plante Moran have entered into a multiyear partnership that gives Plante Moran exclusive naming rights to the terrace suites being built as part of *The New Ford Field *renovation project. Plante Moran also becomes the official tax, audit, consulting and public accounting firm of the Detroit Lions.
The Plante Moran Terrace Suites will offer a more social premium fan experience than traditional venue club and suite areas. They will be located on Ford Field's north suite level and feature box-style suites where a group of people can come together and watch the game yet still have the option of gathering in a communal environment directly outside of the suite. The Plante Moran Terrace Suites also will feature all-inclusive food and beverage (including beer and wine) with high-end stadium fare for all members and guests, including a made-to-order pizza bar with wood-burning oven.
"We're really excited about our partnership with the Detroit Lions," said Gordon Krater, Plante Moran managing partner. "Our sponsorship of the Plante Moran Terrace Suites at Ford Field will not only provide the firm with name visibility and a state-of-the-art venue for networking and hosting clients, but it also gives us the opportunity to further invest in Detroit. The Ford Field renovation will be one more incredible transformation happening in our city –– and with an office, staff and clients in Detroit, it's something we're really proud to be part of."
The naming partnership includes signage and branding throughout the communal area as well as main bowl signage on the fascia above the Plante Moran Terrace Suites.
"Plante Moran is exactly what we were looking for in a naming partner for the new terrace club and suite area," said Detroit Lions Team President Rod Wood. "They have a diverse presence in the local and national business community which many of our suiteholders and their guests can identify with. We look forward to collaborating with Plante Moran to create a premium suite experience that is new to Detroit and unique to Ford Field."
The Plante Moran Terrace Suites will be completed in time for the 2017 Detroit Lions season. Season memberships are available for purchase through the Detroit Lions Premium Seating Department (313-262-2121 or premium.suites@Lions.NFL.net).
