Molten nets British Basketball League extension

Sports equipment manufacturer Molten has opted to renew its sponsorship of the British Basketball League for a fourth term.

The deal will run for five years, from the 2015-16 season through to the end of the 2019-20 campaign.

Under the agreement, Molten will provide its new BGG7X professional basketball to BBL clubs for use in all BBL games, cup matches and championship finals.

Molten will also continue to support the BBL’s junior development programmes, community projects run by BBL clubs and any other official BBL events.

The agreement will help Molten further strengthen its presence in the British and Irish professional basketball sector. Molten, which began its sponsorship of the BBL nine years ago, also has deals in place with bodies such as Basketball Ireland as well as Great Britain’s men’s and women’s national teams.
