RiverKings and Planters Bank Partner for Ice Sponsorship

SOUTHAVEN, Miss - The Mississippi RiverKings, the longest continuously running sports franchise in the Mid-South, announced today that Planters Bank, Mississippi’s premier banking institution, is now the presenting sponsor of the ice surface for the upcoming 2017-18 season.
Planters Bank Ice at Landers Center will be home to at least 28 games for the RiverKings and will be decorated with two large Planters Bank brand marks directly at center ice, flanking the RiverKings crowned “M” logo. The agreement will also ensure that all references to the playing surface be made using the Planters Bank name including but not limited to print, social, and traditional media.
“Planters Bank is excited to be a sponsor of the RiverKings Hockey organization,” said Charles Burnett, Planters Bank President - DeSoto County. “In addition, Planters Bank has enjoyed a great relationship with the Maddox foundation who shares our vision of continued growth and improvement in DeSoto County.  We are a proud partner to an exceptional organization that will strengthen and make Mississippi’s non-profit community ‘best in class’ in the United States.”
