“The entire Webull team is thrilled that our first-ever sports partnership is with the Brooklyn Nets, who are only five subway stops from our headquarters in New York.”

Webull has announced its multi-year partnership with The Brooklyn Nets and affiliated organizations, giving it international marketing rights and title of official jersey patch partner for the Brooklyn Nets’ upcoming NBA season.

As the sponsor of the Brooklyn Nets, the broker-dealer focused on zero-commission trading and in-depth market data showcased the partnership with the team’s Pregame Jersey Presentation at the Barclays Center.

Webull chief executive Anthony Denier and members of the corporate team joined Nets players and executives for the ceremonial jersey exchange at center court before tipoff.

Webull has decided to donate a total of 8,000 tickets to various nonprofit organizations and groups from New York City for the Nets’ first eight home games.

Anthony Denier, Chief Executive Officer at Webull, said: “The entire Webull team is thrilled that our first-ever sports partnership is with the Brooklyn Nets, who are only five subway stops from our headquarters in New York.

“We have a New York team with a diverse fan base, alongside our customers, who are a diverse group of investors, and the Brooklyn Nets have a great international audience, so this partnership aligned perfectly. There was a huge moment of excitement when we first saw the patch on the Nets’ jerseys, and we can’t wait to continue cheering them on this season.”
