There will also be signage on dasherboards and in-ice for Devils games.  In addition, Ford Lincoln Mercury will engage customers at the community level, with promotions at local dealerships on an ongoing basis, including ticket giveaways, vehicle giveaways at games and vehicle launches.

"The Tri-State Ford and Lincoln Mercury dealers are extremely excited to be a part of the Prudential Center, which will bring world-class sporting and entertainment events to the Newark area," said Matt Bradley, New York Regional Manager for Ford Lincoln Mercury Sales Operations. "We are looking forward to this relationship and the opportunity to showcase our new Ford, Lincoln and Mercury products as well as benefit the community and our customers."
