Could the 76ers have a new jersey sponsor next season?
It looks like the 76ers could be switching their jersey sponsors for the 2021/2022 season. Yesterday, the 76ers told Club 76 members that StubHub would no longer be the 76ers official ticketing partner, and Ticketmaster will be taking their place. StubHub has been working with the Sixers since 2016 as their exclusive ticketing partner, became their jersey sponsor shortly after. Their deal was the first uniform advertisement in NBA history.
With StubHub on the way out, it makes sense that someone else will be taking over the open slot on the 76ers jersey. No team in the NBA is without a uniform sponsor, so someone will likely be filling the void in the near future. Ticketmaster seems like the ideal replacement based on the new deal, but nothing has been said yet if that’s the case.
Philly is one of the few teams to remain with their original sponsor since the deal began in the 2017/2018 season, so a change was looming regardless. StubHub’s sponsorship was reported to be worth around $5 million annually, so any suitor will likely have to meet that price range.
