Arbella Sponsors MIAA Football Championships at Gillette Stadium

First time in Massachusetts high school football history that all state finals are played on one field

QUINCY, Mass., December 5, 2013 — The Arbella Insurance Group is proud to announce its first ever sponsorship of the MIAA Football Championships, set for this weekend at Gillette Stadium. The “High School Super Bowls” – the six Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) championship football games – begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, December 7. Thousands of area fans from across the state will attend the games.

“We couldn’t be happier to sponsor this great day of high school football,” said John Donohue, chairman, president and CEO of the Arbella Insurance Group, and chairman and president of the Arbella Insurance Foundation. “We’re a local company and we’re so proud to cheer on these young athletes from our communities who have worked so hard to make it to these championship games. This is a highlight of the season for so many of us across Massachusetts – we’re looking forward to some exciting games.”

To help keep fans warm while they cheer on their favorite teams, Arbella representatives will be handing out complimentary pairs of winter gloves as fans enter the stadium. The Arbella Insurance Foundation will also offer tours of its state-of-the-art Distractology 101 trailer, which will be onsite in NRG Plaza, between the ProShop and the Patriot Place gates. The 36-foot-long, neon-yellow mobile classroom is outfitted with high-tech driving simulators designed to give new drivers the chance to experience the perils of distracted driving, including texting while driving. Arbella will also be supporting the broadcasts of the games on Sports Hub 98.5 and Comcast Sports Net New England.

9 a.m. Cohasset vs Littleton
