The Jacksonville Jaguars and their cheerleader squad, THE ROAR of the Jaguars, have signed a two-year partnership with VENUS Swim & Fashion, the team announced today. The company, a specialty retailer featuring the latest trends in women’s clothing and swimwear in catalogs and online at VENUS.com, will be the presenting sponsor of THE ROAR.
VENUS, as the "Presenting Sponsor of THE ROAR of the Jaguars," will receive stadium electronic signage as well as Internet and print recognition as part of the partnership. VENUS will also be the presenting sponsor of THE ROAR auditions in March and THE ROAR's annual calendar launch party, which will feature ROAR members wearing fashion items provided by VENUS.
"We are excited to work with VENUS on this innovative partnership," said Jaguars Senior Manager of Cheerleading, Promotions and Programs Christy Stechman Zynda. "The Jaguars' participation in the NFL International Series has positioned THE ROAR at the forefront of international interest. This is a wonderful opportunity to partner with an international fashion company also based in Jacksonville; our two brands go together perfectly."
THE ROAR is an integral part of the Jaguars' entertainment package during all home games. These NFL cheerleaders captivate fans with high-energy dance routines. Off the playing field, they participate in hundreds of community, corporate and charitable events both nationally and internationally, serving as goodwill ambassadors for the Jaguars and the NFL.
