BRUNSWICK BOWLING AND PBA EXTEND EXCLUSIVE SPONSORSHIP THROUGH 2013
The best competitive bowlers in the world will continue to use the best bowling equipment during competitive play. Brunswick Bowling & Billiards and the Professional Bowlers Association (PBA) have signed a three-year agreement for continued sponsorship of the PBA Tour.
In the agreement, Brunswick maintains its leadership as the exclusive lane maintenance and capital equipment supplier of the PBA. PBA will use Brunswick Authority22® lane machines, cleaners, conditioners and cloth exclusively on the PBA Tour and the PBA Senior Tour. In addition, Brunswick will also furnish the bowling equipment for PBA arena events conducted during the next three seasons, including GS® pinsetters, ball returns, Vector® scoring systems, and Pro Lane™ synthetic lanes. Brunswick will supply Max® crown bowling pins to be used during televised PBA Tour competitions and will be named as the preferred bowling ball brand at PBA Tour pro-am events.
“The PBA is gratified to be able to continue and expand upon the relationship it has had with the world’s leading bowling product companies since the formation of our organization 52 years ago,” said PBA CEO and Commissioner Fred Schreyer. “The enduring nature of our partnership with Brunswick points to the importance of bowling industry leaders working together to serve the best interests of the sport.”
“We are pleased to continue our sponsorship of the PBA Tour,” said Brent Perrier, president Brunswick Bowling Products. “Our long-term relationship with the PBA has demonstrated that both companies are committed to the growth and success of competitive bowling. By continuing to be the choice of equipment for the PBA, Brunswick maintains its industry-leading status to help build the future of the sport.”
