RA Partners with Molson Coors to become an Ottawa Senators Hockey Headquarters
(October 6, 2014 – Ottawa, ON) Molson Coors and the Recreation Association of the Public Service of Canada (commonly known as the RA) have joined forces to offer members of the largest private recreation facility in the National Capital Region, exclusive access to the Ottawa Senators through a new Hockey Headquarters fueled by Molson Canadian. Based at the RA Centre’s Fieldhouse Bar & Grill, the Hockey Headquarters will offer exclusive content tied to the Ottawa Senators and NHL hockey.
RA members and their guests will have the opportunity to participate in Ottawa Senators Hockey Headquarters activities, such as puck parties, ticket giveaways, discounted Ottawa Senators merchandise and the prestigious “Take a Bite out of Winter” promotion which will send two people to Barbados. RA members will experience renewed excitement in the Fieldhouse Bar & Grill reflecting an atmosphere that supports Ottawa sports.
“The partnership with Molson Coors represents an exciting chapter in the history of the RA. As a community not-for-profit, the RA strives to create an atmosphere in the Fieldhouse Bar & Grill to support our members desire to socialize,” shared Acting General Manager Gord Aitken, “The range of programming to be offered and the excitement of our membership will only solidify the RA as the best social experience in Ottawa for sports, recreation and fitness.”
With such a strong and varied line-up of clubs and sports leagues, members can not only unwind and socialize in an Ottawa Senators Hockey Headquarters but can also take advantage of other special sports promotions including Coors Light Football, Rickard’s Beer Dinners and programming tied to the CFL, UEFA Champions League and much more.
“Molson Coors is excited to partner with a local not for profit with the same rich history as ours. We have been contributing to community life since 1786, so we understand the importance of real, authentic connections with the members of the RA,” states Craig Apostle, Molson Coors Representative, “By partnering with the RA, Molson Coors continues our contributions to the community and to the social network flourishing at the RA Centre and Rideau Tennis Club.”
