Utah Jazz jersey ad will raise money for cancer research
Advertisements will begin appearing on NBA jerseys as patches next season, and the Utah Jazz’s sponsored ad will be one of the more unique across the league.
Qualtrics, a Utah tech company, won’t have a “Qualtrics” advertisement on the Jazz jerseys. Instead, the company will place the name of its charity, “5 For The Fight,” on the uniforms to ask for $5 donations that will be given to cancer research.
“The Utah Jazz and Qualtrics are excited to form a partnership that will both transform the fan experience and make a tangible contribution to eradicating cancer by supporting some of the most important research being done today,” said Jazz President Steve Starks. “In addition, our partnership with Qualtrics will help us leverage greater analytics and innovation to take our team performance, employee engagement and fan experience to a whole new level.”
One-hundred percent of the donations in the campaign, which can be made at 5ForTheFight.org, go to supporting cancer research.
The Jazz will join the Nets (Infor) Celtics (General Electric), Kings (Blue Diamond) and Sixers (Stubhub) as NBA teams that will feature jersey patch ads next season.
