In this development, MassMutual has been named the signature sponsor of the team from the 2023 season. The partnership enables MassMutual to be the first official jersey patch partner of the Red Sox. The branding of the logo will be featured on the sleeve of authentic Red Sox player jerseys. In addition, the brand is also privileged to be seen at Fenway Park and also on the digital properties of both entities.
Speaking on the association, Red Sox President & CEO Sam Kennedy, said, “The Red Sox jersey is one of the most visible and central representations of the club, and it was important to us for the partner featured on it to have a deep understanding and appreciation for this region and community.
“MassMutual is the perfect match for us because they have strong Massachusetts roots and an appetite similar to our own to collaborate well beyond the jersey patch. While their logo will feature prominently at Fenway Park with signage in centerfield and their logo on the sleeve of our jerseys, it’s the work we will do together in our community that will truly bring to light our shared values. We are proud to have them as partners and look forward to a long-lasting and successful collaboration.”
The collaboration also provides an opportunity for MassMututal to provide financial literacy to all Americans by reaching out to a wider range of interactive customers. Considering the fan following of the Red Sox, this association will provide massive exposure to the company.
Commenting on the partnership, MassMutual Chairman, President, and CEO Roger Crandall, said, “The Red Sox and MassMutual each share a long and storied history in Massachusetts. For more than a century, we’ve been invited into many of the same homes, served many of the same families, and helped expand opportunities for many in the same cities and towns across New England and the nation. Now, we are thrilled to come together and partner with an organization that will not only help us dramatically expand our efforts to reach more people, but also shares the same enduring sense of interdependence, teamwork, and community.”
