Game On Columbus Presents Jackets this Month

FOX Sports Ohio is excited to announce that “Game On Columbus” is the presenting sponsor of the network’s coverage of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the month of October.

“Game On Columbus” is a new, grass-roots collaboration created by the Blue Jackets, Clippers and Crew, along with the Greater Columbus Sports Commission, to ignite the spirit of hometown fans and raise "Columbus Sports Pride" for the city’s professional sports franchises.

Throughout the month as presenting sponsor, “Game On Columbus” will be prominently featured during Blue Jackets game telecasts on FOX Sports Ohio to raise awareness of all three Columbus professional sports teams. The network has also partnered with each team on the creation of fan placard signs to be given away at their future home games throughout the campaign.

“Game On Columbus” encourages fans to show their Columbus Sports Pride by supporting each team in many ways including following the teams closely, making their home field advantage the best it possibly can be, and showing team pride by wearing their colors. Columbus will look to establish a tradition of always generating sellouts for the team's home openers, big games and special events every year.
“FOX Sports Ohio is delighted to have “Game On Columbus” as the presenting sponsor of our Blue Jackets programming this month,” states Henry Ford, Senior Vice President and General Manager of FOX Sports Ohio. “As a partner of the Greater Columbus Sports Commission and the television home of the Blue Jackets, we are committed to the “Game On Columbus” campaign. We share in the passion for Columbus teams and communities, and we look forward to promoting Columbus Sports Pride in our viewers.”
“Game On Columbus continues to ignite the hometown spirit of our city’s sports fans in support of our three professional teams,” said Greater Columbus Sports Commission Executive Director Linda Logan. “On behalf of the Blue Jackets, Clippers and Crew, we are extremely excited that FOX Sports Ohio would lend the level of support they have in helping spread the spirit of Game On Columbus’ to their viewers, not just across Central Ohio, but throughout the state.”
FOX Sports Ohio’s coverage of the Blue Jackets begins this Friday, October 7 when the club opens the 2011-12 season at home at Nationwide Arena with a 7pm match-up against Central Division rival Nashville Predators. For a schedule of Blue Jackets games on FOX Sports Ohio, click HERE.
