WEST CHESTER, OH (August 28, 2018) — Kingsgate Logistics, a West Chester based third-party logistics provider, and the University of Cincinnati Department of Athletics have announced their partnership that establishes Kingsgate as an official sponsor of the Bearcats’ student section in a three-year-long sponsorship.
“Kingsgate is excited to sponsor the University of Cincinnati Bearcats for another year,” said Jeff Beckham, Owning Partner at Kingsgate Logistics, “especially with the grand opening of the renovated Fifth Third Arena. The University of Cincinnati is a great asset to the city of Cincinnati, and with this partnership, we hope to make connections with students and fans throughout Bearcat Nation.”
