COLUMBUS, Ohio (February 14, 2024) – The Columbus Fury welcomes Nationwide as a foundational Pillar Partner for their inaugural Pro Volleyball Federation season.

The relationship, which designates Nationwide as the Exclusive Property & Casualty Insurance Partner and a Financial Services Partner, is highlighted by sponsorship of the team jerseys. Nationwide is prominently featured on the primary front location of the jerseys and will be recognized as presenting partner of the Fury’s inaugural season. The partnership also encompasses support for the team’s community initiatives.

“The introduction of the Columbus Fury is an exciting addition to Columbus’ sports scene, and Nationwide is happy to be part of this milestone moment for women’s professional volleyball,” said Ramon Jones, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Nationwide. “We’re proud to partner with another hometown team and showcase the talents of these world-class athletes during their inaugural year with the new Pro Volleyball Federation.”

Nationwide’s partnership with the Fury marks an expansion of its presence in women’s sports. The Fortune 100 insurance and financial services company has been a sponsor of the National Women’s Soccer League since 2021.

“Carrying the Nationwide brand on our team jersey is an honor,” said Dr. David Paitson, CEO of the Columbus Fury. “To have an alignment with a company of the magnitude of Nationwide immediately elevates the Fury brand. We are proud to be representing them and look forward to working together in this groundbreaking venture.”
