MBA excited to announce a three-year corporate sponsorship program with Business Impact Group (BIG)
Posted on May 06, 2017

Attention Class B & C Team Managers,

We are pleased to announce a new partnership with BIG Athletics & ADIDAS. The partnership is for three years, starting with the upcoming 2017 season. The partnership will expire at the conclusion of the 2019 State Championship.

BIG Athletics & ADIDAS will be donating 25 ADIDAS Custom Uniforms to the State Champions at the Class B & C levels each of the three years. These are the same level of uniforms worn by Division I programs such as the University of Nebraska, Indiana University and Arizona State University, to name a few. The uniforms will be custom sublimated to meet your team's specific needs! Retail value of the uniform donation is over $35,000!

In addition to the custom uniforms, BIG Athletics will also offer a 10% royalty for all spiritwear sales conducted through their website platform. This is a great way to get spiritwear items to your team, family members and the community in general.

BIG Athletics' website will allow each participating team the ability to market their products without having to invest in the merchandise and "hope" they sell. BIG Athletics' website will drop ship the order directly to the customer, so there is never a need to put this task on anyone associated with your team. As mentioned, BIG Athletics will provide each participating team with a 10% royalty for all website sales. Sounds like a win for everyone!

On the following page, we have laid out all the information for your review. As a show of good faith for their generous donation, we would encourage you to speak with a BIG Athletic Representative. They currently have 10 sales representatives in Minnesota, so they will be able to provide you with a dedicated sales rep to meet all your needs. Please take a minute to review the information and reach out to BIG Athletics to discuss your program's needs for the upcoming season and beyond.
