Who says I don’t post football news these days? Here is some delicious football news via a press release that just arrived in my inbox. The entire press release is below, but, here is the key part: “Conecuh Sausage will be served as a concessions menu item at Bryant-Denny Stadium and other on-campus sports venues during the collegiate athletics season.”
CONECUH SAUSAGE IS NOW THE OFFICIAL SMOKED SAUSAGE OF THE CRIMSON TIDE
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (July 1, 2019) – Conecuh Sausage will be the “Official Smoked Sausage” of the Alabama Crimson Tide starting this fall as announced today by Crimson Tide Sports Marketing, the multimedia rightsholder for the University of Alabama Department of Intercollegiate Athletics.
Concurrent with the 2019-20 athletics season, Conecuh Sausage will be the exclusive smoked sausage marketed by the Crimson Tide Sports Network. As part of the relationship, the Alabama Football pre-game tailgate show will be entitled The Conecuh Sausage Crimson Tide Tailgate Party. The brand also will receive exposure at University of Alabama athletic facilities, and Conecuh Sausage will be served as a concessions menu item at Bryant-Denny Stadium and other on-campus sports venues during the collegiate athletics season.
“We’re excited about reaching more Crimson Tide fans with Conecuh Sausage, and we are pleased to be working with Athletics and Crimson Tide Sports Marketing,” said John Sessions, owner/operator of Conecuh Sausage Company in Evergreen, Alabama. “We look forward to a successful partnership and can’t wait to get started with Alabama football.”
“It’ll be great to kick off the relationship with Conecuh Sausage next season, and we look forward to adding Conecuh’s high quality, Alabama-made smoked sausage as one of our valued partners,” said Learfield IMG College Vice President and Crimson Tide Sports Marketing General Manager Jim Carabin.
