Advertising Patch Will Appear On Packers Practice Jerseys

Beginning Saturday, fans will notice a Bellin Health patch on the jerseys of the players during training camp.

Starting Saturday, Green Bay Packers fans are going to notice something a little different with the practice jerseys the players wear during training camp.

The Packers have partnered with Bellin Health, who are paying to be featured on an advertising patch featured on the left shoulder of the jersey.

According to Don Walker of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

That is a first for the franchise, and follows a trend of other National Football League teams that have signed deals with major sponsors that involve the addition of an advertising patch on practice jerseys.

The team will not wear the patches during any games, only practice.

Having soccer as my background, I really don't see a problem with this. I prefer the jerseys clean, though.

Another reason football is better than socccer. Dont need to resort to making jerseys into billboards.

If this happens in the NFL I'll be pissed.

I think all NFL uniforms should be modeled after NASCAR outfits.

Awe Shucks! I was hoping for a "Starcaps" sponsorship... guess we'll have to settle for Bellin.
