Tissot Builds Timely NBA Alliance With Klay Thompson, Trae Young, More Teams

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

October 15, 2018:
Just in time for the start of the 2018-19 season, Tissot, the official watch and timekeeper of the NBA, has expanded both its player and team rosters, signing endorsement deals with Klay Thompson of the two-time defending champion Golden State Warriors and rookie Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks (pictured, right)

Tissot said it has signed team pacts with the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards that designate Tissot as the official watch for each of these franchises,.

Tissot will continue its alliance with Tony Parker (pictured below), who moved from the San Antonio Spurs to the Charlotte Hornets during the off-season; as well as with six other NBA franchises, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks, Warriors and Spurs.

Financial terms of the deals were not shared.

Tissot, an official NBA partner since 2015, said that Thompson, Young and Parker would be featured in multi-media marketing during the season, including TV, digital, social media and in-arena activation at games and such jewel events as the All-Star Game and NBA Draft.

Thompson has won three NBA titles with the Warriors. Young was drafted in the first round of the 2018 Draft (No. 5 overall), then traded to the Hawks. Parker won four NBA titles with the Spurs before signing with the Hornets during the off-season as a free agent.

The brand will also continue to be the lead presenter of all "NBA Buzzer Beaters," designated when a player sinks a winning basket with 0.00 seconds left on the Tissot Shot Clock.

New this year, Tissot and the NBA will offer fans exclusive benefits throughout the season via NBA social media channels and on NBAstore.com.

“We are so proud to welcome these teams and athletes into our sports family,” François Thiébaud, president of Tissot, said via the company.

“Our partnership with the NBA has been very successful for us since its inception in 2015, helping to increase our brand awareness amongst NBA fans in the U.S., and we know these new alliances will continue to raise Tissot’s profile around the world.”

As part of its NBA partnership, Tissot worked with the league last season to introduce “state-of-the-art shot clocks and integrated timing systems in all 29 NBA arenas, a first in league history, and ensure consistent timekeeping in each second of NBA game play.”

According to Thompson, “Tissot is a brand that embodies both performance and reliability, which are two critical parts of my game on and off the court. I am excited to partner with Tissot this season and to share my own style with fans.”
