OREANDA-NEWS. Comerica Bank is partnering with the Detroit Tigers on the "Comerica Park Perks" program, which provides special benefits such as a VIP gate entrance at Comerica Park, VIP pregame parties, ticket giveaways and discounts, and more for Comerica Bank customers. The program reflects Comerica's commitment to raise the expectations of what a bank can be and its long-term relationship with the Detroit Tigers organization.

Each home game in 2016, Comerica customers will have access to exclusive VIP game-day opportunities by showing their Comerica Bank debit, ATM or credit card.

"We want Comerica Bank customers to benefit from our partnership, as the official bank of the Detroit Tigers, in a way that enables them to enjoy the park like never before," said Mike Ritchie, president of Comerica Bank-Michigan. "We put our customers first and look forward to sharing the excitement of the 2016 Tigers season with them."

The Comerica Park Perks program benefits include:

Comerica VIP Gate entrance to Comerica Park
Beginning April 9, Comerica customers and their families will be permitted early entry to Comerica Park two hours before game time to watch batting practice by showing their Comerica Bank card and game tickets.
