Thursday, September 25th, 2014: Cosmos Sports is excited to announce a two year partnership extension with the Toronto Rush. Cosmos Sports is a Founding Partner of the Rush and has played a major role in the business operations of the team. Charged with ticket sales, sponsorship, community relations, game day, and social/digital media, Cosmos Sports has been a driving force for the success of the team off the field.
“We are extremely excited and proud to be continuing working with the Lloyds, the Rush, and now the Vancouver Riptide and Ottawa Outlaws,” said Cosmos Sports President, Cary Kaplan. “We’re proud to be part of the AUDL as it continues to grow and thrive from humble beginnings to what it is today and where we envision it moving forward.”
The Rush has been among the league leaders on and off the field having won a Championship in 2013 and finishing as runners up in 2014, while also being a leader in attendance. Looking to move another step forward in 2015, the Rush and Cosmos Sports plan to reach an even larger market and make games even more fun for the fans.
Jim Lloyd, Co-owner and Chief Operating Officer of the Rush said, “We wouldn’t be where we are as a franchise without Cosmos Sports team on the business operations side. They have been great partners and we look forward to continuing the growth and success of the Rush, Riptide, and Outlaws.”
The Rush has many more exciting announcements coming in the near future for our fans and corporate partners. The season may be over, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop. Look for Rush players in clinics and showing up at tournaments all winter. Combines are also just around the corner, so stay tuned!
