ATI Physical Therapy Now the Official Physical Therapy Provider of the Chicago Cubs

The Chicago Cubs and ATI Physical Therapy are proud to announce their new Legacy Partnership, recognizing ATI as the "Official Physical Therapy Provider of the Chicago Cubs." The long-term agreement unites two organizations rich with tradition and a dynamic vision for the future.

"An affiliation with the Cubs has been in our sight for some time, and on behalf of the entire ATI team, we are thrilled to be entering into this long-term partnership," said Dylan Bates, Chief Executive Officer of ATI. "The future and direction of the Cubs, as well as the development project around Wrigley Field, makes this an extremely exciting time to form this Legacy Partnership. We look forward to many successful years with the Cubs organization." 

"The Cubs are thrilled to welcome ATI Physical Therapy as a Legacy Partner who will help us achieve our goal to bring winning baseball to Wrigley Field," said Cubs President of Business Operations Crane Kenney. "Our partnership with ATI includes ensuring our team has access to the best physical therapy in the nation, as well as a meaningful presence within a restored Wrigley Field and Lakeview community. Our players, fans and neighbors will all benefit from this partnership."

The partnership will give the Chicago Cubs access to rehabilitation services from the preeminent physical therapy and sports medicine provider in the nation. ATI will also provide athletic training assistance to the Cubs' medical staff.

Additionally, ATI will have exclusive category advertising rights within Wrigley Field, as well as Cubs Park during Spring Training in Mesa, Arizona. To support ATI's efforts in the communities it serves, ATI will be designated as a sponsor of the Cubs on the Move Fitness Trolley, Cubs Summer Camps and the Cubs Charities Race to Wrigley 5K. In collaboration with ATI MissionWorks, an initiative to support ATI clinicians who offer expertise in developing countries, the Chicago Cubs will be a partner on a missionary trip to the Dominican Republic.

ATI Physical Therapy has an extensive history of partnerships with professional sports organizations within the regions it serves, including the Milwaukee Brewers, Milwaukee Bucks, Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, Detroit Tigers, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Phillies, in addition to collegiate teams such as Notre Dame and Purdue University.
