BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – The Birmingham Squadron, NBA G League affiliate of the New Orleans Pelicans, today announced the team’s first jersey patch sponsorship with Pearl River Resort.
With this enhanced partnership, Pearl River Resort marks will appear below the number on each Birmingham Squadron home (red) player jersey.
“The partnership between the Squadron and Pearl River Resort is another example of our continued elevation and growth within the G League, Birmingham and the southeast,” said Squadron general manager Leslie Claybrook. “Partnering in this way with Pearl River Resort shows we are committed to providing a first-class experience for our players, coaches and fans.”
A corporate partner since the Squadron’s debut season, Pearl River Resort has increased its support of Birmingham’s G League team each season and its marks are set to appear on the goal padding and court at Legacy Arena at the BJCC again this year.
The jerseys are set to debut at Friday night’s Birmingham Squadron season-opener, Hoops for Troops Night presented by Pearl River Resort. For more information on the Birmingham Squadron, please visit BirminghamSquadron.com.
