New Premium Club at Progressive Field


The Cleveland Indians and The Collection Auto Group have reached agreement on a naming-rights deal for the new Premium Club at Progressive Field, which will make its debut on April 8 when the Indians play their home opener against the New York Yankees.

The club, a 5,000-square-foot lounge that encompasses a space formerly home to 10 suites, now will be known as The Collection Auto Club. Three founding partners have joined The Collection Auto Group in its commitment to the new space: Thogus Products, Frantz Ward LLP and Cohen & Company CPAs .

"The Collection Auto Group prides itself on providing our customers with luxury cars and premium service. This partnership with the Indians' new Premium Club was a natural fit," said BERNIE MORENO, president of The Collection Auto Group.

The exclusive club has 100 seats available for purchase on a season-ticket basis only, and  features 20 high-definition TVs, extra-wide plush seating, seat-side tables, deluxe drink and dining rails and a full bar. Unparalleled food offerings, along with wine and beer, are included in a season ticket purchase.

"We're proud to partner with The Collection Auto Group on this new premium space," Indians President MARK SHAPIRO said. "Our research showed us that a segment of our fan base desires a more premium experience, and The Collection Auto Group's Collection's brand represents luxury and premium service."

The Collection Auto Group boasts luxury brands including Mercedes-Benz, Aston Martin, Maserati and Fisker along with Acura, Infiniti, Nissan and Volkswagen among others.  Dealerships are located in North Olmsted, Beachwood, Hudson and Middleburg Heights.

The company has won Mercedes-Benz's "Best of the Best" Award from 2006-2012, and also has been named the No. 1 Mercedes-Benz Dealership in Ohio and the Central United States. Other accolades including being named the No. 1 McLaren SLR dealer in the world; the No. 1 Porsche dealer in Ohio and the Central USA; and No. 1  Lotus dealer in Ohio. Last year, it partnered with Horseshoe Casino Cleveland to name the casino's welcome center and parking garage The Collection Auto Group Centre.

Thogus, a manufacturer that specializes in custom plastic injection molding, rapid prototyping and medical device development, is based in Avon Lake. Frantz Ward LLP is a premier law firm that serves its national client base from offices in Cleveland. Cohen & Company CPAs, a certified public accounting firm with five offices, is headquartered in Cleveland.
