Pentair Named Founding Partner of U.S. Bank Stadium and Official Sustainable Water Partner of Minnesota Vikings


Pentair and the Minnesota Vikings today announced that Pentair has been named a Founding Partner of U.S. Bank Stadium and the Official Sustainable Water Partner of the Vikings. In an effort to minimize bottled water use at U.S. Bank Stadium, Pentair-filtered drinking water will be available at water-filling and drinking stations throughout the stadium, as well as in the suites and clubs.

"Around the globe, Pentair works to help improve the quality, quantity and reliability of freshwater delivery, and we are excited to bring this expertise to U.S. Bank Stadium here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes," said Randall J. Hogan, Pentair Chairman and CEO. "This partnership demonstrates our top to tap capabilities, as our technologies are utilized both in the treatment of the source water from the Mississippi, as well as at the point of consumption with the planned water stations."

The Mississippi River, located just blocks away from U.S. Bank Stadium, is an important water source for the stadium and the metropolitan area. Pentair s technology is utilized in a water treatment facility serving Minneapolis that filters and cleans water from the Mississippi for more than 500,000 residents. At the stadium, a combination of Pentair s proprietary advanced filtration technologies will further enhance the taste and quality of the incoming city water.

"Pentair is well-regarded locally and globally for its leadership in helping to manage the world s precious water resources," said Vikings Owner/President Mark Wilf. "We are thrilled to partner with Pentair to deliver great-tasting, filtered drinking water to our fans on game day."

As a Founding Partner, Pentair will be featured on both levels of the South Gate Entrance (the Pentair Gate) including a lobby experience and wall activation that will help educate visitors of Pentair s innovative water technologies to address global water scarcity and quality issues. Pentair is also collaborating with the Minnesota Vikings on other water concepts inside U.S. Bank Stadium, as well as at the team s potential future practice facility.
