Advertising on major league uniforms


The San Diego Padres announced an advertising deal with Motorola and will be the first major league team to display advertising on their uniform.

The novelty was seen to come and it is probably the beginning of a trend.

On August 6, 2021, the major leagues and the players’ association eliminated the requirement that advertising could not be worn on uniforms and on March 10, teams were given the right to wear product brands on the right sleeve and on the the helmets.

Major leagues decided to allow advertising on uniforms beginning in 2023, though they said they could allow it on helmets in this year’s playoffs.

“The iconic Motorola logo on our uniform is a perfect fit for the Padres brand,” San Diego CEO Ecik Greupner said Tuesday.
