The NBA is about to make a huge move in regards to the apparel of teams across the league.
The NBA announced Friday that the board of governors has approved a three-year pilot program to allow teams to sell a corporate logo on their jerseys.
The first season of the program will be in 2017-18.
"It's my hope, independent of whatever additional revenues are generated through this patch program, that the greatest impact will be in this amplifying effect of companies choosing to associate directly with a team jersey, then going out and promoting that relationship to the largest market,"
The patch will be a 2.5 by 2.5 inch patch. Even though this doesn't seem like that big of a space, this will drastically change the look of jerseys across the league. Personally I feel like jerseys are the one thing the NBA should keep clean as much as possible. People wear them for style reasons, and most would rather not have an ad on their authentic jersey.
