HOUSTON – Houston Rockets players will be wearing an extra logo on their jerseys after the team announced a multiyear partnership with a new sponsor on Monday.
ROKiT Phones, a cellphone start-up company that offers mobile handsets and bundled services, will be the Rockets' inaugural jersey partner.
The partnership launched in August as a subsidiary of ROK brands.
“We were patient in deciding on our inaugural jersey partner and are thrilled to select ROKiT, a company which shares our commitment to excellence both on and off the court,” said Rockets Chief Executive Officer Tad Brown. “We have high expectations heading into this season and look forward to introducing our fans to the quality products and high level of service that ROKiT offers.”
The logo badge will be featured on all Rockets players jerseys at the beginning of the 2018-2019 season. The logo will appear on the front left shoulder of the jerseys, which will be opposite of the Nike logo. The company said it is excited to initiate the long-term partnership with the Rockets.
“We are delighted to work with the Houston Rockets, one of the most successful and well-known sports teams in the world, in a deal that includes being their first-ever jersey partner,” commented ROKiT co-founder Jonathan Kendrick. “The Rockets’ community involvement sets a stellar example for their fans in Houston, across the country and around the world. In that commitment, we saw powerful synergy with our mission of improving the lifestyle of mankind. We are thrilled to initiate this long-term partnership.”
