Bridgestone Becomes Official Licensee of NFL Logo Golf Balls
COVINGTON, GA — Bridgestone Golf, the #1 Ball Fitter in Golf, announced
today that it has entered into an agreement with the National Football League (NFL)
to produce officially licensed NFL logo golf balls. Under the agreement, Bridgestone
Golf has been granted the right to manufacture and sell golf balls, golf ball packaging
and golf bags bearing the 32 NFL teams' official logos, the NFL league logo, the
NFL Conferences' logos (AFC and NFC) and the Super Bowl logo.
The new licensing deal takes effect immediately, as teams and fans begin preparing
for the start of the 2012 season. Financial terms and length of the agreement are
undisclosed at this time.
"We are extremely excited about the possibilities that our newly formed licensing
partnership with the NFL affords," said Dan Murphy, Vice President of Marketing
- Bridgestone Golf, Inc. "Perhaps golfers' passion for the game is only matched
by the passion of fans of America's most popular sport. So, we look forward to giving
our customers the chance to combine these two passions, by showcasing their favorite
NFL team's logo on golf balls properly fit for their swing."
