DETROIT (WJBK) - The Detroit Pistons unveiled Wednesday their new Nike Vapor jersey with a Flagstar Bank sponsor patch on them. It is the first time the Pistons will be wearing a sponsor on their jersey's.
“This is a dynamic partnership between two organizations committed to building a better Detroit,” said Pistons owner Tom Gores said in the press release. “Beyond putting the Flagstar name on our Pistons jerseys, we will be partnering on an education initiative that will benefit schoolchildren in Detroit. I’m really proud that this is more than just a business and marketing initiative. It’s about working together to support the revitalization of our city.”
This is also the first season the NBA has gone to Nike as their official jersey supplier as the Pistons return to Detroit.
“Flagstar Bank is a premier Michigan-based company that shares our mission for providing unparalleled service to customers while making a difference in the community,” said Palace Sports & Entertainment and Detroit Pistons Vice Chairman Arn Tellem said in press release. “Our relationship with Flagstar will provide additional opportunity to engage fans and enhance basketball operations on and off the court in a way that does right by the city of Detroit and the region.”
