ROSEMONT, Ill. — "Hey Culligan Man!" may be the new cheer at the United Center this fall as Culligan has been named the Official Bottled Water Provider for the United Center, the Chicago Bulls and the Chicago Blackhawks, according to a press release.
The three-year agreement went into effect Sept. 1. It covers more than 200 concerts and other events taking place annually at the United Center, including Bulls and Blackhawks games starting this fall, stated the release.
Culligan bottled water will be sold at refreshment areas throughout the facility and Culligan advertising will be prominent on multiple levels of the arena and the concourses.
The agreement involves parent company Culligan Corporation, based in Rosemont, along with nine franchise dealers in the greater Chicagoland area, including four owned by U.S. Water Company LLC, a foundational partner in the agreement, noted the release.
"We are extremely excited to partner with the United Center and two important names synonymous with Chicago sports and the state of Illinois," said R.J. Easton, director of marketing and business development for U.S. Water. "It's great for Culligan and its Chicagoland dealers to be aligned with a Blackhawks team that has won two Stanley Cups in four seasons, and the Bulls, a team with such a rich winning tradition."
