MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Terminix, a leading provider of termite and pest control services and a Memphis-based ServiceMaster (NYSE: SERV) company, today announced its new partnership with hometown professional sports franchises the Memphis Redbirds of Triple-A Baseball and Memphis 901 FC of the United Soccer League. Among other elements, the partnership will include the development of Terminix Terrace at AutoZone Park, as well as the front-of-jersey sponsorship of Memphis 901 FC, which will be unveiled in the coming weeks and debut during the team’s first-ever game on March 9 against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

“We’re proud to call the vibrant community of Memphis home,” said Matthew Stevenson, president of Terminix Residential. “Making a difference for our neighbors is important to us and we want to extend our presence from our recently opened downtown headquarters to support other community organizations just down the street.”

“This combined sponsorship allows us to reach not only the 1.2 million households in Memphis and the surrounding area, but also allows us to expand into new market segments and demographics,” said Matthew Loos, vice president of sales effectiveness and marketing for Terminix. “The USL surpassed 2 million in attendance in 2018, and we are excited for this opportunity to expand our diverse and growing customer base across the United States and Canada.”

“We are thrilled to team up with a local company like Terminix for this major partnership,” Redbirds and 901 FC President Craig Unger said. “When ServiceMaster moved its 1,200 employees to Downtown Memphis and set up its headquarters just two blocks from AutoZone Park, we immediately sought ways we could synergize our Memphis institutions. We think fans will very much enjoy having The Bluff City’s own Terminix involved in multiple ways at AutoZone Park this year and beyond.”
