In just under a week, the Denver Nuggets will host their media day ahead of the 2023-24 NBA season. Media day is a wonderful time. It’s first-day-of-school-esque, with players taking new photos and speaking with the press.
When the Nuggets take their team photos this year, their jerseys will be looking a bit different. According to DNVR’s Harrison Wind, Denver’s uniforms will no longer feature the logo of Western Union, the money-transfer business that has been the team’s sponsor, since the NBA began allowing jersey sponsors ahead of the 2017-18 season.
“Western Union is no longer the jersey patch sponsor for the Nuggets, a source told DNVR,” Wind reported in a tweet. “The company’s logo has been on the Nuggets’ jersey since the 2017-18 season when the NBA first approved the sale of jersey patches.”
Who will be the Denver Nuggets’ jersey sponsor now?
Well, there’s truly no real information on that just yet. But, why not speculate?
There are several major corporations with ties to the Mile-High City such as Ball Aerospace, the sponsor of the Nuggets’ home arena, Dish Network, Crocs, and Coors Brewing Company.
Ball would make a ton of sense since they’re already partnered with the team to some degree. If you’re them, why not get a bit more exposure?
Dish Network would be more of a sleeper candidate. With streaming taking over how most people consume TV, it’s tough to imagine that they’ve got a ton of money to throw around.
Crocs would be a fun one, right? Who wouldn’t love some special edition Nuggets Crocs?
Coors is the one that would come as the least shocking. They’re already the sponsor of Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies’, the city’s baseball team.
