19 December 2016 - MELBOURNE: Basketball Victoria have struck a deal which will see the nation’s largest senior basketball competition, Big V, use Molten basketballs for at least the next two years.
In addition to Molten’s designation as Big V’s official game ball, Molten will also retain the naming rights of the league’s premier youth divisions. The Molten Victorian Youth Championship Men and Molten Victorian Youth Championship Women will continue to be on display as the nation’s best 23 year and under competition - highlighted by the standard of play in recent years.
“The Big V’s premier youth competition is something that continues to impress year on year; we’re delighted to have Molten continue to be the naming rights partner of such a prestigious and talented competition,” commented Julie Anderson, Big V CEO.
The new two-year deal will align Molten’s partnership with Basketball Victoria, extending the already long standing relationship with the state body. Whilst the rollover includes the continuation of being the official basketball of the Big V, Molten also continues their longstanding relationship with Basketball Victoria.
Brian Carmody, Molten Oceania, is looking forward to continuing the relationship, “Molten is delighted to extend its longstanding partnership with Big V for a further two years under the Basketball Victoria banner.
We have witnessed Big V Basketball continue to develop in status during the period of our association and as naming rights sponsor of Molten Victorian Youth Championship Men and Molten Victorian Youth Championship Women, we are extremely proud to be associated with two of the finest youth basketball championships in the world.”
