Scotiabank and the National Hockey League locked in a new multi-year agreement to extend a decade-long partnership that began in 2007. Under the new deal, Scotiabank remains the Official Bank of the league in Canada. Scotiabank will also continue to be prominently featured at other NHL tentpole events including the NHL Heritage Classic, the Stanley Cup Playoffs, the Stanley Cup Final and the NHL Awards, and will continue as a sponsor of the NHL’s year-long Centennial celebration in 2017. As part of the partnership renewal, Scotiabank will also have significant advertising presence throughout all NHL-controlled media properties including NHL.com and NHL Social.
The PGA TOUR lined up PGA TOUR Emojis, an iMessage sticker and emoji keyboard pack that features over 20 animated stickers and GIFs. The offerings were developed by mobile messaging company Snaps and allow fans to drag and drop stickers directly into an iMessage conversation. “The PGA TOUR is always looking for new and creative ways to engage its fans,” said Scott Gutterman, PGA TOUR Vice President of Digital Operations. “The PGA TOUR Emojis keyboard is a fun way for PGA TOUR fans to interact on the golf course or while watching coverage of our events.”
Derek Jeter helped break a Topps NOW record, with the company selling more than 15,000 base cards within a 24-hour period and breaking the previous regular-season mark set last year. Topps created two physical cards commemorating the event for $9.99 each, which were exclusively sold on Topps.com.
Speaking of Topps, the company is now partnering with Sports Crate, the officially licensed subscription crate of the MLB, in a move that will see Topps provide fans with exclusive baseball cards in each month’s crate. This collaboration also includes a special limited foil board set that will be randomly inserted in ten percent of Sports Crate team-focused subscriptions. Sports Crate launches with 10 teams initially, providing fans of the Boston Red Sox, Chicago Cubs, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Mets, New York Yankees, San Francisco Giants, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers with exclusive apparel, collectibles, experiences and more every month.
