CHICAGO (PRWEB) November 15, 2018
The Chicago Cubs®, one of the most historic franchises in Major League Baseball, are partnering with SWAGTRON® as the team’s official electric bike, scooter, skateboard and hoverboard for the 2019 season. The partnership kicks off just in time for the holiday season.
Beginning this November, fans can expect to see exclusive content from the Chicago Cubs and Swagtron. Chicagoans may even spot Clark the Cub, the team’s official mascot, spreading charitable holiday cheer—and a little Swag—around the city.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Swagtron to our team and look forward to showcasing their products starting this holiday season,” said Vice President of Marquee Sports & Entertainment Alex Seyferth. “Their innovative bikes and scooters are perfect for riding locally to and from Wrigley Field and around the neighborhood. Not only are their products fun to ride but through this unique partnership, we are creating exciting activations and content we believe Cubs fans will enjoy.”
The Cubs’ free bike valet service at Wrigley Field will include an official Swagtron electric bike and scooter charging station in 2019. In addition, a variety of Swagtron products will be available for purchase at the official Cubs Stores located at Gallagher Way (adjacent to Wrigley Field), Michigan Avenue in Chicago and at the Sloan Park Team Shop, the team’s spring training facility in Mesa, Arizona.
“Even though electric bikes and scooters are practical, efficient modes of transportation, there’s something just plain fun about riding them that I think the kid in all of us really connects with,” says Swagtron CMO Jason Wakefield. “I think it’s a lot like baseball in that way.”
Swagtron products available throughout the season bearing the Official Cubs designation include the Swagger 5 Elite Folding Electric Scooter, the EB5 Folding Electric Bike and the Swagcycle PRO Compact Electric Bike.
Swagtron will roll out Cubs content, promotions and events throughout 2019 that will be unlike anything in the e-rideables industry.
“We’re excited to see the Cubs ride into 2019 with a little extra Swag,” says Wakefield. “And to give fans in Chicago and across the country the chance to ride like a pro.”

ABOUT CHICAGO CUBS
The Chicago Cubs franchise, a charter member of Major League Baseball’s National League since 1876, has won the National League pennant 17 times and was the first team to win back-to-back World Series titles in the 1907 and 1908 seasons. In 2016, the Chicago Cubs made history again when the team won its first World Series in 108 years, ending the longest championship drought in North American sports. Known for its ivy covered outfield walls, hand-operated scoreboard and famous Marquee, iconic Wrigley Field has been the home of the Chicago Cubs since 1914, making it the second oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball. In 2009, the Ricketts family assumed ownership of the Chicago Cubs and established three main goals for the organization: Win the World Series, Preserve and Improve Wrigley Field, and Be a Good Neighbor.
