WEST PALM BEACH, FL - The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals announced that they are in agreement with CACTI on a naming rights deal for their Spring Training ballpark in West Palm Beach, FL. The agreement is a collaboration with internationally acclaimed multi-platinum, diamond-certified, GRAMMY® nominated artist Travis Scott, who is the owner of the CACTI Hard Seltzer brand. As part of the multi-year deal, the ballpark will be renamed CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches ahead of the 2024 Spring Training season. Additionally, the ballpark will undergo a complete rebrand throughout, and CACTI brand product will be available for fans at Astros and Nationals Spring Training games.
“With the official U.S. launch of CACTI coming, I am psyched to be partnering with the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals for CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches,” Travis Scott said.
“The Houston Astros are excited for the opportunity to work with Travis Scott and the CACTI Hard Seltzer team,” said Creighton Kahoalii, Astros Senior Vice President, Affiliate Business Operations. “This collaboration supports our continued efforts to provide a great fan experience not just during Spring Training, but at CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches throughout the year.”
“We are pleased to partner with CACTI Hard Seltzer and the people behind the brand to continue offering our guests a first-class experience,” said Alan H. Gottlieb, Chief Operating Officer, Lerner Sports Group. “This relationship will ensure that CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches remains a top entertainment destination, attracting individuals from around the area for sporting events, concerts and more.”
On February 24, prior to their first Spring Training game of the 2024 season, the Astros and Nationals will host a special ceremony at CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches, which will include a ribbon-cutting by Travis Scott. Scott will also throw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to that night’s 6:05 p.m. game between the Astros and Nationals.
The Astros and Nationals have shared the newly-named CACTI Park of the Palm Beaches since it was opened in 2017, with each club having separate, state-of-the art training facilities on opposite sides of the ballpark. Since arriving in West Palm Beach in 2017, the Astros and Nationals have combined to win three World Series titles, with the Nationals winning in 2019 and the Astros in 2017 and 2022.
CACTI was forged in the mind of Travis Scott, a world-renowned artist and cultural kingpin. Travis sought to create a hard seltzer beverage that he and his fans would love. CACTI Hard Seltzer is a bold approach to modern flavors - all at 5% ABV, 100 Calories, and 1 gram of sugar. Each can of CACTI delivers out of this world taste experiences, each giving a nod to Travis’s favorite timeless sodas: Berry Splash, Tropical Twist, Paradise Slice and Citrus Haze.
