Solar Bears welcome American Residential Services as new rink naming rights partner

Solar Bears home ice is now ARS.com Rink at Amway Center

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Orlando Solar Bears have announced today that American Residential Services LLC (ARS®/Rescue Rooter®) has joined the team as the new naming rights partner for the ice surface at the Amway Center at the 2016-17 season.

The Solar Bears ice surface will now be referred to as the ARS.com Rink at Amway Center. The ARS.com logo will be prominently displayed on each side of the Solar Bears logo at center ice, and the company will be mentioned every time the Solar Bears take the ice during the regular season and playoffs.

“We are proud to embark on this partnership with the Orlando Solar Bears,” said Bryan Craun, Division Vice President of ARS. “The Solar Bears are a treasured part of the community and  provide a positive outlet for children, encouraging healthy living and sportsmanship. We also loved the idea of being associated with the Amway Center, a venue that keeps people cool even during the hottest days in Orange County. Restoring the comfort of homeowners and making sure they have energy efficient air conditioning is what we do on a daily basis. We are excited to cheer on the Solar Bears this upcoming season.”

Another key component to the partnership highlights ARS®/Rescue Rooter® as the exclusive residential heating, cooling and plumbing partner of the Orlando Solar Bears.

“We’re thrilled to have American Residential Services as a corporate partner and to have them as the naming rights sponsor of the ARS.com Rink at Amway Center,” said Michael Kalinich, Solar Bears Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships. “Our relationship with ARS has grown over the past year and we look forward to working on new opportunities together in the future.”
