Lynx Pair With Medica For 2012 Playoffs

The Minnesota Lynx today announced that for the second consecutive season, Medica will be the presenting sponsor of the 2012 Lynx playoffs. Through the partnership, Medica’s logo will be incorporated into all collateral surrounding the team’s playoff run, including: in-arena and external signage, team marketing videos, social media mentions and in-game promotions.

Additionally, the partnership makes Medica the presenting sponsor of all Lynx Playoff radio broadcasts on the BOB FM Network of stations. The partnership includes two 60-second commercials during each Lynx Radio broadcast during the postseason, as well as the “Medica Solo Player of the Game” for the game’s top performer. Lynx play-by-play announcer Alan Horton will include a live read promoting the Medica Solo plan.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Medica again for the upcoming playoffs,” said Timberwolves and Lynx President Chris Wright. “Medica is a tremendous, Minnesota based organization whose core values align with those of the Lynx organization, which makes it a perfect fit. We look forward to continuing to grow our relationship through this upcoming playoff run and into the future.”

Medica will also be fully integrated into during the team’s upcoming playoffs run, including being the presenting sponsor of an online feature, sponsor of playoff emails sent to team distribution lists and full banner integration into the header on throughout the playoffs.
