During the off-season that followed their 2012 FBA Championship, the Tampa Bay Rebels were able to secure partnerships with several businesses in the community. Among the partners for the 2013 season are LA Fitness, R●Sole, and Peabody’s. These companies are well known for both the quality of their products and the services that they provide.
LA Fitness is a nationwide chain of health clubs that will be supporting the Rebels during the team’s training camp in April and throughout the season. R●Sole is the premier supplier of urban clothing for men. Amy Wright, Manager of the Tampa store said, “Many of our existing customers are basketball players from local colleges; we think partnering with the Tampa Bay Rebels is a natural extension of our business.” Peabody’s is a top notch sports bar located in New Tampa offering great food and entertainment since 1998. Initial cross-marketing is underway between Peabody’s and the Rebels advertising each other in their social media outlets.
