Old Trapper Designated Official Snack of Championships Hoops Rounds

Old Trapper announced that they have been named the “Presenting Sponsor of the Championship Rounds” at the annual 2K Empire Classic and the Roman Legends Classic Men’s College Basketball Tournaments. Old Trapper Beef Jerky has been designated the Official Snack of both tournaments.

The 2020 2K Empire Classic Tournament taking place November 23-26 at the Mohegan Sun Resort and Casino in Uncasville, Connecticut between Boston College, Villanova, Arizona State and Baylor will be televised on ESPN2 (three games) with the Championship Round televised on ESPN. This year’s 2K Empire Classic benefits Wounded Warriors, an organization that Old Trapper is proud to support.

The 14th annual Roman Legends Classic presented by Old Trapper is highlighted by UConn meeting Vanderbilt and USC taking on BYU in the semifinals of the Championship Rounds at Mohegan Sun on Tuesday, December 1. The semifinal winners will meet for the Roman Legends Classic presented by Old Trapper title on Thursday, Dec. 3, followed by the consolation game.

As the Presenting Sponsor of the Championship Rounds, Old Trapper will enjoy prominent placement throughout the tournament and in TV and media coverage. The company’s beef jerky will be spotlighted in three commercials and one closing billboard per game. Another perk of the sponsorship will be premium exposure on the championship’s courtside digital signage, consisting of eight minutes on ESPN2, four minutes on ESPNU and four minutes on ESPN3.

“In a year when sports have largely been put on hold and delayed, we are particularly proud to be the 2020 Presenting Sponsor of the Championship Rounds, and of being the “Official Snack” for the 2K Empire and Legends Classics,” explains Robert Leary, Marketing Director of Old Trapper. “Enjoying these games with sports fans, who are among our most devoted consumers has become an annual tradition and we are very much looking forward to these tournaments.”
