We can say goodbye to advertisement-free threads, as the Atlanta Braves revealed their first jersey patch partner in Quikrete. The sponsorship will last for five seasons.

The concrete manufacturer’s logo will appear on the right sleeve of the Braves’ threads and debut on-field tonight against the Seattle Mariners.
“We are proud to have our hometown team wear our iconic yellow bag Quikrete logo on their sleeve,” said Quikrete CEO Will Magill. “It’s exciting to deepen our relationship with the Atlanta Braves as we work to connect with Braves Country and Major League Baseball fans through this first-of-its-kind partnership.”
Team jersey ads began in 2023 with the San Diego Padres first promoting Motorola on their jerseys. Since then, eight other clubs have joined in with jersey advertising.
