Midland Rockhounds announce ConocoPhillips as presenting sponsor

The Midland RockHounds announced this week that ConocoPhillips will become the team’s presenting sponsor.

The partnership will incorporate ConocoPhillips into “virtually all of the team’s branding, marketing and advertising,” and with a greater presence at the ballpark, according to a statement from the team.

ConocoPhillips is expanding on a well-established relationship with the RockHounds. For example, the company has been instrumental in supporting the franchise’s Country Concert benefiting local charities.

“The RockHounds contribute to the strong sense of community in the Permian Basin and ConocoPhillips is excited to expand our collaboration,” said ConocoPhillips Lower 48 Executive VP Nick Olds. “This partnership is a testament to our shared dedication to fostering pride, igniting passion and embodying the perseverance that fuels both the game and our community.”

RockHounds GM Shelly Haengg said it will be a great partnership for both parties.

“We share a common interest in being strong members of our community,” Haengg said. “The RockHounds’ primary goal has always been to provide first class family entertainment and ConocoPhillips’ support of a ‘hometown’ team is a great example of their commitment to the Permian Basin.”
