CHARLOTTE, N.C. , Oct. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — cbdMD, Inc. (NYSE American: YCBD) announced today it has come on board as the exclusive CBD partner for both Monster Energy Supercross and the Monster Energy Cup that took place Saturday night at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas. The multi-year agreement officially began at Saturday’s annual all-star event but will extend into the 2020 Monster Energy AMA Supercross and FIM World Championship season.
“We’re excited to be the first motorsport to have an exclusive deal within the CBD category,” said Jason Bitsoff, SVP of Global Sponsorship for Feld Entertainment. “Supercross is leading the way in the motorsports industry and we’re always looking at partners that are also category leaders.”
cbdMD sponsors an array of professional athletes that cover a broad spectrum of sports, from pro surfing, beach volleyball, golf and tennis, to MMA and many of the athletes competing in the Monster Energy Cup. The invite-only race features a $1 million purse, the largest prize in motorcycle racing and attracts the elite of the sport both on and off the track. The Monster Energy Cup featured an iconic in-seating track section dubbed the cbdMD skyhook.
“Stemming from an amazing partnership with Chad [Reed] to a category exclusive partnership with Feld, we’re excited to expand our relationships with Chad, Monster Energy Supercross, and their respective fans,” said Caryn Dunayer, President cbdMD. “As the first televised motorsport to allow on-track branding within the category, the partnership is nothing short of a huge success and a massive step forward for our entire industry. We couldn’t have done it without the help of Chad and his wife, Ellie.”
