NBL team slam-dunks partnership

Australian National Basketball League team Melbourne United has agreed a deal for training and community development organisation Community Training Initiatives (CTI) to become its main sponsor.

The “multi-million-dollar” deal will run for two years, from the 2014-15 season until 2015-16.

Under the deal, which United said represents one of the sport’s most lucrative ever sponsorship agreements, the CTI logo will feature on the team's jersey.

In addition, CTI and United will work together to develop a range of healthy lifestyle training packages.
