ExxonMobil Builds NBA Alliance With Celtics, Hornets, Rockets Team Deals

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

March 1, 2018: ExxonMobil has revved up its alliance as the “official motor fuel of the NBA” by signing  multi-year deals with three teams: the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets, the latter also including the Rockets home arena, the Toyota Center.

Financial terms of the individual deals were not shared.

The Hornets, under the majority ownership of Michael Jordan, will host the 2019 NBA All-Star Game.

ExxonMobil signed with the NBA in 2016 as official motor oil for the NBA, WNBA and NBA G-League in the U.S. and China.

The new partnerships include the following designations:

• “Official Motor Fuel Partner of the Boston Celtics.”

• “Official Partner for the Charlotte Hornets.”

•  “Official Partner of the Houston Rockets and Toyota Center.”

ExxonMobil said marketing support would include a sweepstakes offering tickets to the first two games of the 2018 NBA Finals.

To promote the sweepstakes, ExxonMobil said it would host an “official 180-degree photo experience event” March 6 in the Charlotte Hornets’ Spectrum Center, and March 20 in Boston Celtics’ TD Garden.

During the events, “people will have the opportunity to perform an alley-oop, driving to the basket and scoring in their own unique style. A 180-degree camera will capture this performance; participants will receive their image via e-mail.”

People will also have the opportunity to enter the 2018 NBA Finals sweepstakes at these events.

“We are excited to partner with three outstanding NBA franchises and to announce the launch of our 2018 NBA Finals sweepstakes,”  Eric Carmichael, Americas Fuels Marketing Manager for ExxonMobil Fuels & Lubricants, said in a statement.

“Like the performance the Boston Celtics, Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets deliver every game, our products are meticulously engineered with ingredients that work together and draw many parallels to the teams' synergy on the court.”
