The Golden State Warriors have expanded its partnership with cloud software company Oracle to include naming rights to the team’s practice facility, which has been renamed the Oracle Performance Center.
The Oracle Performance Center, measuring 25,349 square-feet, will be home to the Warriors practice facility and player campus, located at Chase Center, the Warriors’ 18,064-seat privately financed sports and entertainment arena in San Francisco’s Mission Bay neighborhood.
“The competitive advantage that Oracle will add to our team, through its partnership with the performance center and our joint technology development work, is significant,” said Warriors Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations, Kirk Lacob. “As we strive to bring home another NBA title, it is no secret that the work that our players and coaching staff put in will begin in the Oracle Performance Center, which is why it is critical that the amenities are world-class.”
“We’re proud to expand our partnership with the Warriors, a team that leads not only on the scoreboard but also in innovation,” said Oracle Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Ariel Kelman. “We love to partner on technology initiatives such as the Performance Center, and we look forward to working with the Warriors on all of the ways we can help power better player insights and performance, and give every possible competitive edge to the iconic Warriors team.”
Oracle’s expanded partnership with the Warriors will include joint technology collaboration to enhance player optimization, training and performance. Other sports organizations that partner with Oracle to use its cloud computing services include the English Premier League, SailGP and Red Bull Racing.
“We look forward to working with the Warriors on all of the ways we can help power better player insights and performance, and give every possible competitive edge to the iconic Warriors team,” Oracle EVP and chief marketing officer Ariel Kelman said in a statement.
