Toyota To Support University Of Michigan Athletics For 2013-14

ANN ARBOR, Mich., Nov. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota recently signed a one-year deal with IMG College, LLC, establishing a sponsorship between the automaker and the University of Michigan Athletic Department.

Spanning the 2013-14 school year, the contract involves promotional opportunities through the remainder of the football campaign, as well as men's basketball and ice hockey seasons. All three sports will involve radio and Internet promotions for Toyota.  During the hockey season, Toyota will sponsor a "Power Play Community Donation" program, with the company donating $250 for each Wolverine power play goal to FIRST Robotics of Michigan. 

Toyota, which has a large technical center near Michigan's Ann Arbor campus, employs approximately 1,200 employees in the region – with many of them Michigan alumni.

"The Toyota Technical Center is a long-time supporter and partner of the University of Michigan, particularly its engineering program," said Jeff Makarewicz, Vice President of the Corporate Strategy Office at Toyota Technical Center. "This sponsorship allows us to remind Michiganians of our large, supportive presence in the state, while assisting local school children through FIRST Robotics of Michigan."

"We are pleased to partner with another Ann Arbor-based business in Toyota," said Hunter Lochmann, Chief Marketing Officer for the University of Michigan Athletic Department. "Both Toyota and Michigan Athletics share a long history of supporting the Ann Arbor community, and we are excited that this partnership will support FIRST Robotics of Michigan through the Power Play Community Donation program."
