We knew the day was coming sooner than later — advertisements on basketball jerseys.
The Philadelphia 76ers are now the first major American professional sports organization to add sponsorship to their jerseys, announcing a deal with StubHub on Monday.
The 76ers, who finished 10-72 this season, unveiled the new jerseys with a small StubHub logo patch on the front left corner. It will be a three-year deal, with the jerseys starting to roll out in the 2017-2018 season.
