Dayton Dutch Lions partner with The Crowne Plaza Dayton

DAYTON, OH — The Dayton Dutch Lions FC is proud to announce its partnership with The Crowne Plaza Dayton.  The Crowne Plaza Dayton has entered into a three-year $96,000 contract with the Dutch Lions to provide accommodations to all visiting teams for the next three years.

USL PRO mandates that all home teams provide a certain level of accommodations, including late check-out to their opposing team.  The Crowne Plaza generously offered their newly renovated hotel to the Lions for the next three seasons, an offer that is almost “too good to be true,” said Dayton Dutch Lions marketing manager, Laurie Smalley.  “The offer is so generous and the atmosphere of the hotel epitomizes the branding philosophy of the Dutch Lions and USL PRO soccer.  We are thrilled that we can offer such comfortable and luxurious accommodations to our USL PRO opposing teams.”

“We are proud to sponsor the Dayton Dutch Lions FC and to be a part of the momentum that we are seeing in The Miami Valley. Dayton is in middle of a re-birth and we welcome companies like the Dutch Lions FC who see Dayton as a vibrant and thriving city and who are contributing to the sports and entertainment industry here. The Crowne Plaza® Dayton hotel is the perfect gateway to all that the city has to offer, including professional soccer!” says, Kris Davis, Director of Sales.

Not only is the hotel ideally located in downtown Dayton with access to all that the city has to offer, the Stars Rooftop Restaurant provides breathtaking views and a delicious dining experience, making it the perfect spot for parties, press conferences and post-game entertainment.  In fact, The Dayton Dutch Lions FC will host their first official pre-game, including a meet and greet with players, coaching staff, owners and management at Stars Rooftop Restaurant at the top of the The Crowne Plaza Dayton on Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
