Kings Announce First-Ever Co-Branded, Nickname Jersey Sponsorship
SACRAMENTO, Calif. –In the team’s continued effort to create unique and innovative partnerships, the Sacramento Kings and Pizza Guys, in conjunction with Isaiah Thomas, are excited to reveal that the team’s point guard will debut the League’s first-ever co-branded, nickname jersey this Sunday, as the Kings host the Dallas Mavericks.
“Led by Vivek, our organization’s mantra is to be leaders in innovation,” said Kings President Chris Granger. “It is with great excitement that we are teaming up with proud partner Pizza Guys and the star of their hit commercials, Isaiah Thomas, to reveal a new product that delivers on that goal. And who’s better at delivery than Pizza Guys?”
