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.”
