Canucks Sports & Entertainment (CS&E) is proud to announce a new sponsorship agreement with Lyft as the Official Rideshare Partner of the Vancouver Canucks and Rogers Arena. The new partnership is one of the many ways Lyft is demonstrating its investment in Vancouver.
“With a commitment to connecting our communities, the Vancouver Canucks and Lyft share similar values and can now work together to make an active difference through a better fan experience and local partnerships,” said Trent Carroll, Chief Operating Officer, Canucks Sports & Entertainment. “We’re excited to welcome Lyft to Rogers Arena.”
To kick off the partnership, the Lyft logo will be displayed prominently between the boards and the goal line on the Canucks end of the ice starting this evening in the game against the Los Angeles Kings at 7 p.m. PT.
“We are so proud to partner with the Canucks and Rogers Arena – two iconic institutions that contribute to the economy and spirit of Vancouver,” said Aaron Zifkin, Managing Director for Canada at Lyft. “In every one of our markets, we look for local partners who are making a positive impact in their communities. Our partnership with the Canucks and Rogers Arena will enable us to work more closely with the Canucks for Kids Fund, and ultimately, help improve the fan experience and create a more connected Vancouver.”
