Sixers to Wear StubHub Logo on Uniforms in 2017-18

When the Sixers take the floor the open the 2017-18 season, they will have a StubHub logo just below their left shoulder.

And if you buy a Sixers jersey at the Wells Fargo Center during a game that season, it also will have the StubHub patch.

The team announced the deal with the ticket provider on Monday morning, becoming first franchise in the history of the four major U.S. sports to reach an agreement to wear an advertisement on their uniform. Last month, the NBA approved the selling of jersey sponsorships as part of a three-year pilot program.

"This marks another groundbreaking first for the Philadelphia 76ers and StubHub," Sixers CEO Scott O'Neil said in a statement released by the team. "Our brands are now inextricably linked as we create lifelong memories for our fans in Philadelphia and around the world."

StubHub's jersey patch also will appear on all jerseys sold at Sixers' home games.

Earlier this year the Sixers and StubHub reached a deal making StubHub the team's official ticketing partner, and the two developed a new ticketing platform that will launch next season.
