SPONSORSHIP & PROMOTION
The Detroit Pistons landed a jersey ad sponsor, announcing an agreement with Flagstar Bank to take on the patch that will adorn uniforms this season. Detroit now becomes the tenth NBA team to announce a jersey partner. “This is a dynamic partnership between two organizations committed to building a better Detroit,” said Pistons owner Tom Gores. “Beyond putting the Flagstar name on our Pistons jerseys, we will be partnering on an education initiative that will benefit schoolchildren in Detroit. I’m really proud that this is more than just a business and marketing initiative. It’s about working together to support the revitalization of our city.”

This weekend will see Sling TV offer its first-ever PPV event with the live stream of UFC 214: Cormier vs. Jones 2 in Saturday. “Since we launched in 2015, we have focused on putting customers first, while pushing boundaries no other live OTT service has gone near,” said Roger Lynch, CEO of Sling TV. “Integrating UFC 214 directly into the Sling TV experience is the next step in Sling TV becoming a true cable replacement.”
