Charlotte Hornets seal deal with Tissot

November 3, 2016

NBA side Charlotte Hornets have announced a multi-year deal with Tissot to serve  as the Official Watch of the Charlotte Hornets. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed. 

As a part of this first-of-its-kind agreement, a Hornets-branded Tissot Quickster watch will be available for purchase in the Hornets Fan Shop along with various other Tissot watches. 

Tissot will also benefit from prominent in-arena signage elements including courtside rotational and LED basket stanchion, as well as logo and watch graphics on one of the basket pole pads. Other elements of the partnership include the use of Hornets marks and logos, an online sweepstakes on, Tissot branding on social media pregame warm-up videos and a Tissot “Countdown Clock” on the team’s website counting down to the next Hornets game.

“We are thrilled to partner with a world-renowned brand and timepiece leader in Tissot,” said Hornets President & COO Fred Whitfield. “This partnership will have a tremendous impact for the organization and our fans both on and off the court. Off the court, fans will be able to showcase their team pride with this unique, special edition Hornets-branded Tissot Quickster watch. While on the court, Tissot’s precision time keeping will provide the most accurate 24-second shot clock for our players and coaches during all Hornets games at Spectrum Center.
