Ohio continues to be an important state to Meijer, which brings a variety of exciting opportunities to support the communities where our customers and team members live.
Meijer has been a proud sponsor of Ohio State Athletics for 8 years, participating in the Ohio State Football Fanfest with free food, giveaways and activities. We also partner with the Assistant Coach of the Game Sweepstakes, and the Fan of the Game.
In keeping with athletics, Meijer has been a presenting sponsor of Crosstown Showdown – the kickoff to high school football in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana – for more than 10 years. The Showdown schedule includes 44 teams, and more than 22 games during the 2018 football season. It is the nation’s premier high school football showcase.
Meijer likes to get involved in other family activities too, especially at the Ohio State Fair. Meijer sponsors Meijer Day at the fair, as well as Kiddieland at the Ohio State Fair. Those activities include admission discounts, and games like speed pitch, golf challenge and plinko, in the kids area.
