Hyperice Named Proud Partner of the New York Yankees
First Individual Team Alignment Extends MLB League-Wide Partnership and Investment
Hyperice, the industry leader in recovery technology and pioneer of percussion, vibration, dynamic air compression and thermal technology, today announced Hyperice has been named a Proud Partner of the New York Yankees. The partnership not only taps one of the most coveted sports brands in the world, but further extends Hyperice's strategic partnership and investment by Major League Baseball (MLB) as the league's Official Recovery Technology Partner.
The first of its kind for Hyperice, the multi-year partnership kicks off ahead of Opening Day for the 2021 season as the Yankees begin their quest for their 28th World Series title. This season, players will have access to Hyperice products in Yankee Stadium, including in dugouts, bullpens and training areas. The Hyperice brand will appear on in-Stadium signage and will promote its partnership through advertising and intellectual property rights within the Yankees' territory.
"The New York Yankees are one of the most iconic and innovative franchises on the planet with a fan base that extends to every corner of the globe," said Jim Huether, CEO of Hyperice. "By integrating Hyperice warmup and recovery products into the training room and in the dugout, we're helping to optimize player performance, mobility and extend player longevity."
"We are very excited to begin our innovative partnership with Hyperice and look forward to working together to enhance Hyperice's existing brand presence within professional sports," said Michael J. Tusiani, New York Yankees Senior Vice President, Partnerships.
Today's announcement once again cements Hyperice's recovery technology category leadership as the company in less than a year has signed an unprecedented list of pro sports leagues (NBA, NFL, MLB, PGA TOUR and UFC); global pro sports teams (Los Angeles Lakers, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, New Zealand All Blacks, Tottenham Hotspur and Kaulig Racing) as well as an unrivaled list of athlete-investors including: Seth Curry, Anthony Davis, Rickie Fowler, DeAndre Jordan, Jarvis Landry, Patrick Mahomes, Christian McCaffrey, Ja Morant, Naomi Osaka, Chris Paul, Doc Rivers, Ben Simmons, Kelly Slater, Fernando Tatís Jr, J.J. Watt, Russell Westbrook, and Trae Young.
