Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President Corporate Sales & Sponsorships added, “We are excited about our sponsorship with Kowa, and hope that its Yankee Stadium promotional activation will increase sales for its licensed products and strengthen its global brand awareness.”

As part of the sponsorship deal, Vantelin will receive a product information kiosk at select home games this season, at which it will have product samples on display and ambassadors demonstrating its products.
