It’s only a matter of time before all team sports go full-NASCAR and sell ads on their jerseys.
The WNBA led the way among major sports when it allowed team to plaster ads on their jerseys.
The Mayo Clinic Boost Lynx became the first major sports team in our area to adopt the idea, which they did in 2014, and it worked out fine. They won a championship.

Now it’s the men’s turn.
Bloomberg reports the Philadelphia 76ers have reached a deal with StubHub, the ticket reseller, for ads on their jerseys. But it’ll star small — just a 2.5 inch by 2.5 inch patch.
“It’s the best real estate in sports,” the 76ers boss said.
When the Timberwolves follow suit is still anybody’s guess, but it probably won’t be StubHub.
