10 Sports Jersey Sponsorships That Need To Happen

10 Sports Jersey Sponsorships That Need To Happen

StubHub has officially become the first NBA jersey advertiser. Starting in the 2017–2018 season, StubHub will be paying $5 million per year to have its logo features on the Philadelphia 76ers jerseys.

In coming months, it’s likely that a number of other NBA jersey sponsorship deals will come rolling in. The possibilities are endless, but here are 10 perhaps overly-appropriate professional sports team sponsorships that Benzinga would love to see.

1. Dallas Cowboys: Smith & Wesson Holding Corp(NASDAQ: SWHC)

You’re not a real cowboy if you have an empty holster!

2. Chicago Bulls: Red Bull Come on Red Bull — they’re the Bulls and their primary jersey color is red. This ad sells itself.

3. Denver Nuggets: McDonald’s Corporation (NYSE: MCD)

They could even try to negotiate an advertising deal to have the team re-named the Denver McNuggets, but that would probably cost a pretty penny.

4. New York Jets: Delta Air Lines, Inc. (NYSE: DAL)

Don’t overthink it, Delta.

5. Phoenix Suns: Coppertone

After all, fans should remember not to spend too much time near the Suns without their SPF 30 Suns-screen.

6. Los Angeles Dodgers: Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc (NYSE: VRX)

Valeant has had quite a year dodging accusations of drug price gouging and nefarious accounting, and now they are trying to dodge the consequences of an ongoing SEC investigation.

7. Denver Broncos: Churchill Downs, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHDN)

It seems like an obvious choice for the Broncos to have a horse racing company as a sponsor, but then again broncos are known for their bucking and would probably be quite a long-shot on the race track. On the other hand, man, can they run!

8. Kansas City Royals: Burger King

Burger King parent company Restaurant Brands International Inc (NYSE: QSR) has a golden opportunity to promote its Whopper monarchy on the Royals unis.

9. San Diego Chargers: Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ: TSLA)

Tesla literally owns and operates a San Diego charging station.

10. Cleveland Browns: United Parcel Service, Inc. (NYSE: UPS)

What can the Browns do for you?
