March 20, 2006 - ROCKFORD, Ill. – Over the next three years, the Rockford RiverHawks will help one of the region’s top universities build awareness of a higher-education opportunity for Rock River Valley students.

Today, the RiverHawks announced their new stadium will be a venue for the University of Wisconsin – Platteville Pioneers to promote its Tri-State Initiative. The multi-year marketing agreement makes the university one of the RiverHawks’ top marketing partners in brand-new RiverHawks Stadium.

“This is premier exposure for one of the premier institutions of higher learning in the region,” RiverHawks general manager Josh Olerud said. “We are thrilled to have the university in such a prominent position at the stadium. We’re also happy to draw the attention of the Rock River Valley’s college-bound students to this option for the next step in their education.”

Illinois and Iowa students who enroll at UW–Platteville through the Tri-State Initiative save more than $6000 annually in college costs, compared to other non-resident students.

As part of the Pioneers’ exposure, UW–Platteville will sponsor RiverHawks/UWP Backpack Night, scheduled for Saturday, July 29. Game time is 7:05 p.m.

Opening Day at RiverHawks Stadium is 7:05 p.m. Wednesday, May 31, when the ‘Hawks host the Evansville Otters. The RiverHawks are members of the Frontier League, a 10-team independent professional baseball league that will play its 14th season in 2006. Advertising, season-ticket and suite information is available by calling the box office at (815) 964-2255. Fans can also visit the RiverHawks online at www.rockfordriverhawks.com.
