Valspar said the project is part of its support of preserving historical icons nationally and locally. Valspar’s Cubs sponsorship also includes interactive games for fans, announcements, and signage during the 81 home games, as well as advertisements in the Cubs Official Scorecard throughout the 2009 season.

“We couldn’t be more excited to have our scoreboard and marquee look better than ever for the 2009 season,” said Matt Wszolek, Cubs director of sales and promotions, Chicago Cubs. “Not only is Valspar helping us keep Wrigley beautiful, they’re reaching out to our fans as well.
