Timed to Go Hoop Day on June 23, Spalding will make its Spalding Precision model basketball available on Amazon’s Prime Now in more than 30 U.S. cities.
Go Hoop Day is a global celebration of the game on basketball that was co-founded by Chris Paul. Spalding is the official ball of basketball and sponsor of Go Hoop Day.
“Basketball is the most played sport in the United States. Making the new Spalding Precision™ available on Prime Now will be a major step for the accessibility of the game in America’s biggest basketball cities,” said Jack Marquardt, Spalding VP of brand communications. “We’re excited to partner again with Go Hoop Day this year to make it easier for players around the country to get out and play and show their love for the game.”
The Spalding Precision, the official game ball of the 2019 Jr. NBA Global Championship and the AAU Super Showcase, will be available on Prime Now in more than 30 U.S. cities, available to Prime members with one-hour and two-hour delivery options. The ball features an Eco-Grip composite cover for an enhanced grip and feel.
“Go Hoop Day is a unifying, global celebration of the greatest game on earth: basketball,” said Paul, a 9-time NBA All-Star and the National Basketball Players Association president. “Spalding continues to better the playing experience with products like the Precision. It’s the kind of ball that makes you want to get up a few extra shots no matter the time or place – exactly what we want to happen on Go Hoop Day.”
“Spalding is a natural partner because the brand shares my deep love for the game, making basketball more accessible to everyone, and delivering Go Hoop Day’s message that ‘the game loves you’.”
