The Missouri Comets announced a three year partnership with Citizens Bank and Trust. As the official sponsor of the Comets, the Citizens Bank and Trust logo will be displayed on the team’s home and away jerseys, as well as on the Comets’ field at the Independence Events Center.
The partnership also includes CB&T’s sponsorship of Comets’ goalkeeper, Danny Waltman, and his “Danny Saves” program which benefits the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kansas City. For every save Danny (or any Comets goalie) makes for the remainder of the 2010-2011 season, as well as the 2011-2012 & 2012-2013 seasons, Citizens Bank and Trust will donate $5 to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Kansas City.
The Comets will wear a retro jersey this Friday against the Wave so the first game with the new uniform will be on the road against Omaha on Sunday.
Geison Moura (Away) and Vahid Assadpour (Home) show off the newly sponsored uniforms.
I talked with Comets President Brian Budzinski about the importance of the jersey sponsor and a few other topics as well.
