Progressive Field’s new premium area named ‘The Collection Auto Club’
The newest premium seating area at Progressive Field now has a name.
The Collection Auto Group has partnered with the Cleveland Indians to secure naming rights for the stadium’s new premium club, which now will be known as The Collection Auto Club.
The club, a 5,000-square-foot lounge that encompasses a space formerly home to 10 suites, now will be known as The Collection Auto Club. Three founding partners have joined The Collection Auto Group in its commitment to the new space: Thogus Products, Frantz Ward LLP and Cohen & Company CPAs.
Construction on the club continues, as the photos here show. Customers who buy season tickets in the club have access to free gourmet food offerings including beer and wine. Response to the club has been strong, and availability is extremely limited. For more information on the club and to purchase tickets, call the Indians’ Premium Seating department at 216-420-4497 or visit the Premium Seating page at Indians.com.
“The Collection Auto Group prides itself on providing our customers with luxury cars and premium service. This partnership with the Indians’ new Premium Club was a natural fit,” said Bernie Moreno, president of The Collection Auto Group.
The club is scheduled to be completed by mid-March; the Indians will host the club’s annual “What’s New at Progressive Field” event for media, followed by a Tweetup, in the space on March 20; more information on those events will follow soon.
The Collection Auto Group boasts luxury brands including Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, Maserati and Fisker along with Acura, Infiniti, Nissan and Volkswagen among others. Dealerships are located in North Olmsted, Beachwood, Hudson and Middleburg Heights. The company has won Mercedes-Benz’s “Best of the Best” Award from 2006-2012, and also has been named the No. 1 Mercedes-Benz Dealership in Ohio and the Central United States, among other accolades it’s received.
