Major League Teams
Meijer brings a variety of exciting opportunities to support the communities our customers and team members call home. Meijer has partnerships with major league professional teams in the MLB, NHL and NFL that are based in the states where our stores are located.
Meijer is a landmark sponsor of Little Caesars Arena in Detroit that is home to the Detroit Pistons basketball and Detroit Red Wings hockey teams. We are also a major sponsor of Lucas Oil Stadium in downtown Indianapolis, home field of the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
Our sponsorship with the Colts often goes beyond the stadium to connect at the community level to do great things for people and families. One example is Horseshoe Helpings, an event that takes place before Thanksgiving. Meijer and distributor US Foods partner with the team to donate Thanksgiving meal ingredients to families in need.
While our partnerships vary from team to team, they often involve collaborating with a charitable organization for holiday shopping trips. Many of the sports organizations take a hands-on approach with players accompanying children or families as they buy presents using Meijer gift cards.
Our sports team sponsorships with the Chicago Bears, Milwaukee Brewers and Cleveland Indians allow us to bring prominent athletes to our stores to interact with fans.
