The Charlotte Bobcats announced today that the team’s game against the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, February 11, will be presented by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina. Blue Cross and Blue Shield Night will be highlighted by an in-game presentation recognizing six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson of Hendrick Motorsports.

As part of Blue Cross and Blue Shield Night, every fan that shows their BCBSNC insurance card at the box office within 2 hours of tipoff will receive a discounted ticket to the game: $35 lower-level seats and $10 upper-level seats. In recognition of Johnson’s success, the Bobcats will play a video tribute highlighting Johnson’s 2013 achievements and he will be honored with an on-court presentation by the team.

“We are thrilled to recognize Jimmie Johnson and Hendrick Motorsports on their championship,” said Bobcats Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield. “He and his team continue to work hard to maintain a certain level of success on and off the track. The work Jimmie Johnson, Hendrick Motorsports and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina do throughout our community is phenomenal and we are proud to partner with such great organizations who continue to be a strong presence throughout the Carolinas.”

The Bobcats and Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina have partnered together for several initiatives during the 2013-14 NBA season. Blue Cross and Blue Shield was the team’s presenting partner for its 2013 Training Camp in Asheville, N.C. Additionally, the two organizations have partnered to support the Marilyn G. Rabb Foundation’s youth empowerment mission.
