New Beginnings for UD Athletics

By Melissa Rysak, CPSM • November 14, 2019

It is something to celebrate when the projects we work on for our clients intersect with the passion we have for the community. The Whitney Athletic Center project at the University of Delaware (UD) has provided one of those intersections for EDiS Company, and we could not be more excited to be a part of this game changing project.

Working as a joint venture with Barton Malow Company, EDiS is managing the construction of the 90,000 square foot wellness and athletic training facility as well as the renovation of several key features of Delaware Stadium. Many of those renovations were completed for the August 29 Blue Hens football home opener, and many more are still to come: a new club space with food and a bar as well as access to exclusive club seats, an improved press box, and upgraded restrooms and concessions.

While the opening game on August 29 marked the unveiling of the recent stadium improvements, it also marked the kick-off of a new alliance between UD Athletics and EDiS Company.

As strong supporters of our active military and military veterans, EDiS has teamed up with UD Athletics to present Dedication to Service, a program at every Blue Hens home game that honors an active or veteran member of the military from the Delaware Community. In addition, EDiS is a partner in the UD Athletics Seats for Soldiers program, which provides free tickets to active or veteran military and their families to attend the Blue Hens Salute to Service games.

Continuing this partnership in service to our active and veteran military, UD Athletics signed on with 22in22 to support VetFest, an event held at the Town of Whitehall to honor Delaware’s veteran and active duty military, while drawing a focus on the epidemic of soldier suicides.

The partnership between EDiS and UD Athletics is leading to great things both on and off the field, and the community is the winner.
