MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — The Minnesota Lynx are cashing in on their recent run of success.
The Lynx announced an expanded partnership with the Mayo Clinic on Monday that includes a new jersey that features the Mayo Clinic name across the front rather than the team’s name. The Lynx and NBA’s Timberwolves are also partnering with the health care provider on a new practice facility just across the street from their arena.
The Lynx, who have won two of the past three WNBA championships, will become the sixth team in the league to feature a corporate sponsor’s name as the primary logo on the jersey.
“This is the biggest partnership of this sort that we have ever had,” WNBA President Laurel Richie said. “So I’m very grateful to be a part of this partnership.”
