LOS ANGELES, July 30, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the BIG3 announced a new partnership with Verizon. As part of the partnership, Verizon will have on-court signage and present the "rules of the game" segment each week.

Other key components of the partnership include:

"We are so excited to finally announce Verizon as our newest partner," said Christopher Hannan, BIG3 CEO. "After much productive discussion and workshopping during the Verizon Black Owned Media Summit two short months ago, we are delighted to see this deal finally come to fruition and applaud Verizon for supporting the multi-cultural and innovative brand our league has worked so hard to create."

"In a time when so many companies are talking the talk, we are thrilled to see Verizon stepping up and walking the walk," said Ice Cube, BIG3 co-founder. "We can't wait to continue working with them this season, especially as we inch closer to our next stops in Dallas, Milwaukee, and Chicago."

"BIG3's intersection of sports, music and entertainment make them a unique and powerful partner," said Rachel Chan, Director of Media, Strategy & Activation, Verizon. "This

relationship is a result of the open dialogue stemming from the Black Owned Media Summit and we are excited to continue to develop and think differently about partnerships moving forward"

Known as a ground-breaking league that focuses on innovation, BIG3 implemented notable rule changes following the 2019 season which included lowering the minimum age of athletes from 27 to 22 and opening the league to all nonprofessional and professional athletes that want to try out.
