U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism Announces Extension of Partnership with Red Sox

The U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI) Department of Tourism proudly announces a multi-year extension of the partnership with the Boston Red Sox, the nine-time World Series Championship team.

U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS (May 10, 2023) –“From flight patterns to partnership, for the past two years, the USVI Department of Tourism has made immense progress in linking the important Greater New England market and the territory,” said Joseph Boschulte, USVI Commissioner of Tourism. “We are excited about the growth of our partnership with the Red Sox team and look forward to continued connectivity between our two regions.” 


To celebrate the extension, Commissioner Boschulte was joined by USVI Governor Albert Bryan, Jr. in Boston, who threw out the ceremonial first pitch during the second game of the Red Sox -Blue Jays series at Fenway Park.


“We’re proud to extend and deepen our partnership with the U.S. Virgin Islands Department of Tourism,” said Red Sox EVP Troup Parkinson. “Our collaboration has gone well beyond baseball, expanding to college ice hockey and football events at Fenway Park. We look forward to finding more ways to partner in the years ahead.”


Following a successful first year of campaigns, including branded sponsorship placement with the Red Sox, at the Frozen Fenway collegiate hockey competition and for the Wasabi Fenway Bowl, the first NCAA Division I Football Bowl Series, the extended partnership allows the USVI to expand the reach of its marketing campaigns, visitor promotions, and economic opportunities.


“We want to encourage visitors to escape the stresses of the cold winters to fall Naturally in Rhythm and Catch a Vibe Like No Other with our pristine beaches, local cuisine, historic landmarks, and National Parks,” explains Commissioner Boschulte.
