RCN Becomes an Official Sponsor of the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Virginia

RCN
Corporation, a provider of video, data, and voice services
to residential and business customers, announced that it has signed a
two-year agreement to become an official sponsor of the Patriot Center in
Fairfax, VA.

Located on
the campus of Northern Virginia’s
George

Mason
University,
the

Patriot
Center is a 10,000-seat arena that hosts
George Mason basketball games, commencement ceremonies, and a wide variety of
performances and special events.

“We view
the Patriot Center as an excellent multi-purpose venue for premiere events
ranging from basketball games to concerts to family shows to trade shows,” said
RCN President & CEO Peter Aquino. “We see this as a perfect fit. Our
company prides itself on offering the most choice in cable TV, high-speed
internet and phone services so customers can choose what works best for them,
based on their lifestyle and budget.”

As part of
the sponsorship, RCN will have signage, prominently displayed at various key
locations inside the Center, which will be seen by attendees of more than 140
events and basketball games through out the year.

“We are
truly pleased to welcome RCN as an official sponsor of the

Patriot
Center,
said Patriot Center General Manager Barry Geisler. “We look forward to a long
and mutually productive relationship.”

Earlier
this month, RCN announced an official sponsorship with D.C. United. According
to RCN Senior Vice President, Strategic & External Affairs Richard Ramlall,
the company’s growing affiliation with local sports teams reflects its
determination to have a positive presence in the community.

“RCN
was formerly known as Starpower in the

Washington,

D.C. Metropolitan area,”
Ramlall said. “With sponsorships that allow us to showcase RCN at D.C.
United soccer games,
Georgetown basketball
games, and now at more than 140

Patriot

Center concerts, community
events and George Mason basketball games, RCN’s star power continues to grow.”
