For Immediate Release

The Los Angeles Clippers today announced Chumash Casino Resort as the official presenting sponsor for the Clippers 2011-12 NBA season. Entering their third season as a Clippers partner, this marks the first time Chumash Casino Resort will be a season presenting sponsor.

“We are so excited to expand our partnership with Chumash Casino Resort,” Clippers President Andy Roeser said. “They have been a valued partner for the past two seasons, and we look forward to working with them throughout this year as well as many years to come.”

Serving as the presenting sponsor of the Clippers 2011-12 season is another innovative way for Chumash Casino Resort to interact with Clippers fans.

“All of us here at the Chumash Casino Resort are thrilled to see the NBA season getting under way,” Bill Peters, General Manager of the Chumash Casino Resort said. “We look forward to reaching Clipper Nation through our continued partnership, in what promises to be an exciting season.”

The comprehensive partnership between the Clippers and Chumash Casino Resort includes increased media exposure, exclusive in-arena presence and business development opportunities relating to the 2011-12 season. In addition, Chumash Casino Resort will work with the Clippers to provide fans an opportunity to win up $30,000 at every Clippers home game.

The Chumash Casino Resort, located in the heart of Santa Barbara wine country, is owned by the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians. Offering 24/7 gaming, three restaurants, headline entertainers, a luxury hotel and spa, the Resort has quickly become the region’s entertainment destination of choice.
