Like Money In The Bank: San Antonio Spurs Sign Frost Bank To Jersey Patch Deal

By Barry Janoff

August 22, 2018: The San Antonio Spurs have finally joined the ranks of NBA teams with jersey patch advertising deals, signing a multi-year alliance with locally headquartered Frost Bank.

The alliance will come with multi-platform marketing support, including signage in AT&T Center and in Frost Bank locations as well as a “comprehensive community engagement platform.”

Financial terms of the pact were not shared.

The Spurs are the 23rd NBA team with a jersey-logo deal and the second to be signed following the conclusion of the 2017-18 season.

The Memphis Grizzlies signed a jersey patch deal with FedEx earlier this month. FedEx also has a naming-rights deal for the team’s home venue, FedExForum.

The average value of the previous NBA jersey-patch deals is about $9 million, per industry analysts.

The Spurs-Frost Bank alliance dates back to 1973 when then president Tom C. Frost provided the financing necessary to move the franchise, then part of the ABA, from Dallas to San Antonio. Throughout the 45-year relationship, Spurs Sports & Entertainment said it has also "relied on Frost as its longest-tenured partner and bank, according to the team and financial institution."

Frost Bank is a Texas-chartered bank based in San Antonio with 134 branches and 1,300 ATMs, all in Texas.

“We’re proud to be a sponsor and a partner with such a well-regarded, successful organization as the Spurs,” Phil Green, Frost chairman and CEO, said in a statement. “We wanted to partner with them because Frost and the Spurs share the same values of integrity, caring and excellence.

“All across Texas, Frost bankers can be recognized by the Frost logo pins they proudly wear . . . As we welcome the Spurs into the Frost family, we hope they will wear the logo as proudly as we do.”

The Spurs jerseys will be unveiled prior to the start of the season and debut on-court when they host the Miami Heat on Sept. 30 in the first game of the 2018 pre-season.

The NBA is entering the second season of a planned three-season jersey patch trial.

Among the biggest financial deals, the Golden State Warriors jersey-logo pact with Rakuten is valued at $60 million over three years.

The Los Angeles Lakers signed with e-commerce firm Wish, a three-year deal that analysts put at $12-$14 million annually, similar in value to an alliance between the New York Knicks and SquareSpace.

The Cleveland Cavaliers signed with Goodyear for $30 million over three years. The Boston Celtics have a three-year deal with GE valued at $24 million.

According to Rick Pych, Spurs Sports & Entertainment President and CEO, “It was very important for us to find a jersey patch partner that best aligned with our company culture and values, and Frost Bank is the perfect match as demonstrated in the exemplary professional and community service that they have provided to Texans for now over 150 years.

“In our 45 years of partnership with Frost, we have witnessed firsthand the commitment to building long-term caring relationships with their customers as well as to the communities in which they serve.”
