NBA All-Star 2016: Secure Your Way There!

    By Jaime Villegas

    The NBA All-Star 2016 is quickly approaching and if you haven’t booked your VIP experience yet; fret not, you still have a little bit of time to secure yours and find yourself at the biggest culmination of the top athletes in the basketball industry!

    Kia Motors + NBA = History Made

    As new sponsorship deals came to fruition for the big weekend, we slowly began to get a better picture of what the All-Star event will be all about. The 2016 All-Star Game will mark the first time in history that one of the four major North American sports will have a sponsor on one of their uniforms; however, it is rumored that the game jerseys will only be featured for a least one game. We’ll have to wait and see what it looks like when all 30 teams sport the patch on their jerseys.

    The NEW Verizon Slam Dunk

    Speaking of sponsors, Verizon and the NBA announced a major multiyear content and marketing partnership, making Verizon the Official Wireless Service Provider of the NBA, Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA), NBA Development League (NBA D-League) and the USA Basketball (USAB).

    As part of the new partnership, go90, a mobile video service and social entertainment platform, will feature extensive NBA content including daily highlights, original content and access to live out-of-market games through NBA LEAGUE PASS. Additionally, all go90 users will have access to exclusive NBA-related content and will be able to Cut & Share select clips and highlights via text (SMS), Facebook and Twitter. The NBA and go90 will collaborate on bringing a number of original exclusive series to the go90 platform, offering unique perspectives and voices from around the NBA.

    Verizon will become the title partner of the NBA All-Star Slam Dunk platform. The "Verizon Slam Dunk" contest will debut at NBA All-Star 2016 in Toronto and Verizon will become the presenting partner of the NBA All-Star Balloting Program and a partner of NBA Draft, NBA Summer League and the Jr. NBA. Beginning with the 2016 season, Verizon will have a marquee partnership with the WNBA.
