To commemorate the opening of the Champion Custom Tee Center at the ESPN Wide World of Sports located at the Walt Disney World resort, Steelers’ running back and Champion brand ambassador Rashard Mendenhall will greet guests on Friday, February 26 at the Champion Sports Zone at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Mendenhall will be greeting his fans from 12 – 2 pm. No purchase is required to meet with Mendenhall, however admission to the park is required.
Speaking on the new Champion Custom Tee Center, Champion Executive Vice President Kevin Hall says: “The Custom Tee Center was created with our mantra, ‘How You Play’ in mind. It’s an interactive apparel experience that allows the fan to take our product and make it their own – it’s all about how they ‘play’ and the athlete’s event t-shirts should reflect that.”
As we reported earlier, two mobile units and one permanent location will be open for easy consumer access and the center will expand this summer, offering additional and versatile personalization options.
