ESPN.com is reporting that the price point for title sponsorship of the August 26 match-up has been set at $10 million dollars. This nearly doubles what Tecate Beer paid ($5.6 million) in May 2015 to sponsor the Mayweather vs. Pacquiao fight.
Here’s what $10M buys the top sponsor:
- The sponsoring company would get its logo at the center of the ring at Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena
- Branding on ring girls
- Branding on two of the ropes and in the two nonfighter corners of the ring.
- The deal also includes sponsorship of the first minute of every round on the broadcast and $500,000 in tickets.
If $10 million is a little steep for your pockets, for $5 million a company can buy one of the fighter’s corners. That would include signage in that corner, sponsorship to the broadcast corner cam and $250,000 in tickets.
There’s still time to start that goFundMe and make a proposal to the powers that be.
