FLUSHING, N.Y., May 10, 2016 – M&M’S and the New York Mets announced today a new partnership making M&M’S the official chocolate candy of the New York Mets.
The chocolate brand is taking over the naming rights for the seats directly beyond the left field wall. The “M&M’S Sweet Seats” is a 102 seat all inclusive fan area featuring oversized imagery of the six M&M’S characters. In addition, the M&M’S partnership includes fan photo areas in the ballpark concourse areas and the inclusion of the custom My M&M’S production option for all suite purchasers.
“We are excited to partner with another iconic global brand such as M&M’S” said Vice President, Corporate Partnerships Wes Engram. "Like the Mets, M&M’S have a very loyal fan base, and we look forward to engaging both of our fan bases in the “M&M’S Sweet Seats” at Citi Field for many years to come.”
