Will the Bucks Announce Their Arena Sponsor in August?
Milwaukee Bucks are having their block party in late August. They’re calling it the Grand Opening for the Wisconsin Sports and Entertainment Center. The question is will there be an arena sponsor by then? Or are the Bucks waiting to seal the deal until the end of August. There have been rumors about who will get the coveted sponsorship. At first, we heard it would be FISERV Arena which the financial company completely denied in early June. Recently, there are some rumors about Jack Links becoming the sponsor which would be interesting considering they’re based out of Minnesota. My guess is we’ll know this answer by August 26th.
If you think about it, Milwaukee Bucks have done this in the past. They wait until a big moment with a bunch of people there to announce what’s happening. If it’s a brand like Jack Links, they want to be among the people to get their branding out in front of people. Further, this would be a
contradiction fit in with what Bucks president Peter Feigin said a couple months ago. He said about the sponsor ‘We’re going to have a Wisconsin brand with a national presence.” That would not be Jack Links. (CORRECTION! Jack Links’ corporate office is in Minneapolis, but they started in Minong, Wisconsin in the northwest part of Wisconsin. I probably should have Googled that. Thanks to Voeltzy for the correction).
I’m sure we’ll have rumors like this all summer until we have our answer.
