“We’re happy to extend our agreement with Nelligan Sports," said IPFW Athletic Director Tommy Bell.  “In the four years that we've been working with NSM, they have done an outstanding job of gaining the respect and trust of the Fort Wayne community through their professionalism and first-class management of our corporate sponsor program and athletic promotions efforts.  In addition, NSM has worked hard to build relationships within the athletic department as well as across campus, going above and beyond what their normal scope of work is to the benefit of the University.  I'm looking forward with working with NSM for many years to come.” 

“We're excited for the opportunity to continue working with IPFW” said NSM Senior Vice President, John Penny.  "Tommy Bell and his staff have been terrific partners and we look forward to working with this dynamic University and building upon the foundation we have built.  Our goal will be to continue to explore new opportunities to extend the IPFW brand throughout the region and enhance our sponsorship program for our current and future corporate partners."
