Thunder finds jersey sponsor close to homePublished: Friday, March 15, 2019 By: David Dishman Source: NewsOK
If Russell Westbrook or Paul George break the internet on Saturday while viciously dunking over the Splash Brothers, Boogie, Draymond or He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named — an Oklahoma City-based business is going to capitalize.
Love’s Travel Stops and the Oklahoma City Thunder are announcing a partnership Friday that will place the Love’s heart logo on Thunder jerseys for all games. The corporate patches will make their debut Saturday against the Golden State Warriors.
The jersey deal is a continuation of a longstanding relationship between the company and the local team. Love’s has partnered with the Thunder since 2008, and founders Tom Love and Judy Love can be seen courtside at many home games.
The value of the sponsorship deal was not disclosed by either company. It is a four-year agreement that will run through the end of the 2022-2023 Thunder season.
