Looks like we’ll finally have orange jerseys for the Bucks, or at least, a tint of it. As someone completely bamboozled by their fake jersey reveal back on April Fools in 2016, the presence of Harley-Davidson’s iconic orange appearing on the Bucks jerseys for next season will be a welcome sight. Darren Rovell is reporting that the team is set to announce the partnership today, although he says terms aren’t disclosed at this time.
Harley-Davidson has had a presence with the Bucks for some time, and local fans will assuredly remember Bango steering his black bike onto the BMO floor to get everyone to “Rev up” as the game is coming to a close. Now, Bango’s jersey should assuredly carry the Harley brand as well, so he’ll be carrying that torch throughout the contest.
This pairing seems to make total sense, particularly when you look at the franchise’s penchant for calling on local sponsors to this point, most notably the Milwaukee Tool construction site at the new arena’s grounds. This should bring in some additional revenue for the franchise, and who knows, maybe we’ll see a few more hog riders out there wearing Giannis jerseys rather than leather jackets. How much money is yet to be seen, but the Bucks are now the 12th team to have signed a corporate logo deal.
