“With its spectacular venues and sweeping vistas, Choctaw Stadium is an anchor for exciting events and memorable experiences making this a natural partnership for the RS3 family,” said Jay Kudla, President of RS3 Strategic Hospitality. “We are thrilled to join forces with a content powerhouse like REV Entertainment and live for these kinds of opportunities to showcase our vibrant and popular +1 guest experience. Our mission is simple: elevate the public’s culinary experience inside and outside the state-of-the-art facilities around the property. We look forward to exceeding the high-bar vision we have and share with REV for guests at Choctaw for years to come.”

The unparalleled success of RS3 Strategic Hospitality in sports and entertainment begins at the top with Hall of Fame pitcher Nolan Ryan, former Houston Astros minority owner Don Sanders and Ryan Sanders Sports & Entertainment CEO Reid Ryan at the helm.

This will include new signature brands, with each menu thoughtfully crafted to provide a new degree of value, variety and cuisine at the stadium.
