SOUTH BEND, IN and SCOTTSDALE, Ariz.– September 16, 2021 – Notre Dame Global Partnerships has entered into a new partnership with connected communications company Nextiva. As a new Official Partner of Notre Dame Athletics, Nextiva branding will adorn the headsets of the Fighting Irish football coaching staff and appear on the football communications box on the Notre Dame sideline.
“Notre Dame Athletics is excited to help Nextiva promote its connected communications solution as the newest partner of our Athletics program” said President of Notre Dame Global Partnerships Theodore Loehrke. “We look forward to working closely with Nextiva over the coming season.”
“Nextiva’s business communications are the foundation of winning teams in business and on the football field,” said Al Campa, CMO of Nextiva. “The best teams are excellent communicators, whether they’re communicating internally, speaking to customers, or selling a new prospect. Partnering with Notre Dame, a program synonymous with excellence, winning and bringing people together, is a natural fit for Nextiva.”
This marketing partnership was secured through Notre Dame Global Partnerships, the joint venture company formed in 2018 between Legends and JMI Sports to oversee Notre Dame’s athletics sales, marketing, sponsorship, hospitality, multimedia rights and branding services on a local and national level.
