PHOENIX AZ & SAN JOSE, Calif. USA -- (BUSINESS WIRE)

Sunday, October 07, 2018

The Phoenix Suns and PayPal Holdings Inc. announced a first-of-its-kind global partnership built on elevating fan experiences through innovation. PayPal will be the first-ever jersey patch partner of Arizona’s original professional sports franchise starting in the 2018-19 regular season, which tips off on Oct. 17. Jersey sponsorships were approved by the NBA as part of a three-year pilot program and PayPal’s logo will appear prominently on the front left of Suns jerseys, opposite the Nike logo. As part of the partnership, PayPal will also be designated the Official Payment Partner of the Phoenix Suns, the Phoenix Mercury and Real Club Deportivo Mallorca, which is also owned by Suns Managing Partner Robert Sarver and plays in Spain’s La Liga Segunda División.

“In an increasingly digital and mobile world, there’s no better teammate for this extensive partnership than an innovative industry leader like PayPal,” said Suns President and Chief Executive Officer Jason Rowley. “It was important for us to partner with an organization that had a strong local presence in the Valley and demonstrated a shared commitment to positively impacting our community. Through this partnership, we’ll utilize PayPal’s leadership and expertise in technology and innovation to help create a better experience for our fans at home and around the globe.”

The unique partnership will integrate PayPal services as a seamless payment option into several touch points throughout the fan journey. PayPal will be a payment option at Talking Stick Resort Arena point of sale terminals and at the Suns Team Shop in the arena, while fans will be able to access PayPal through the Official Suns Mobile App. The Suns will also make PayPal Credit available for Suns’ SixthMan members to purchase season tickets. PayPal Here card readers will be integrated at point of sale for chip, swipe, and tap payments, and fans will be able to pay with their Venmo balance throughout the arena.

“The Phoenix Suns have proven time and again that they share our passion for putting the customer - their fans - first. We are excited to offer new commerce experiences to Suns fans that enable a more convenient and enjoyable in-arena experience,” said PayPal’s President and Chief Executive Officer Dan Schulman. “PayPal has had a significant presence in Arizona and the Phoenix metro area for more than a decade and we are proud to be the Suns’ first jersey patch partner and work with an organization that is so important to a city and state we also call home.”

Together, the Suns and PayPal will utilize this partnership as a platform to identify new ways to innovate sports and entertainment commerce experiences and revolutionize how fans interact with their teams.

"Since 1968, the Phoenix Suns have brought Arizonans together for love of the game – and now they have a strong partner in PayPal," said Arizona Governor Doug Ducey. "With PayPal's leadership in the technology sector, focus on innovation and their shared commitment to Arizona, this partnership will add value to the Phoenix Suns organization and benefit Arizona fans."

PayPal will receive traditional marketing and sales assets through Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury and RCD Mallorca channels, including in-arena/stadium, broadcast, digital and via promotions. The Phoenix Mercury will also feature a PayPal brand on the front of their jerseys starting in the 2019 WNBA season. The Mercury jerseys will be revealed in the spring.
