The Indiana Pacers announced a multi-year deal with Motorola which will include adding the company logo to the left shoulder of the team’s uniform. The patch will be on the jerseys tonight when the Pacers host the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The mobile communications company started in Chicago and according to the press release on the partnership, found the Pacers and NBA to be a good fit for their company.

“All of us at Motorola are thrilled to see our iconic brand join forces with an iconic team, the Indiana Pacers,” said Rudi Kalil, vice president and general manager, North America at Motorola. “Now as the Pacers first-ever jersey patch partner, Motorola joins an organization whose combination of teamwork, passion and drive to continuously improve, has led them to tremendous success. This same championship formula is one we put into play at Motorola every day to win with our products, customers and employees, and is what makes this partnership so exciting.”

The Pacers are the 29th team in the NBA to sign a deal for the jersey ad patch which the league started allowing last season.
