The Orlando Magic And Verizon Announce Partnership Extension With Total By Verizon

The Magic introduces Total by Verizon to the city of Orlando with team sponsorship as Verizon continues to enhance in-arena experience

ORLANDO – The Orlando Magic announced today the extension of its partnership with Verizon as the official and exclusive wireless telecommunications and 5G partner for the team. This multiyear partnership now integrates Total by Verizon, the new prepaid wireless brand running on America’s most reliable 5G network*. The partnership marks Total by Verizon’s first official team sponsorship, as the brand looks to expand in Orlando and the surrounding areas.

“The Orlando Magic are thrilled to continue its partnership with Verizon and introduce Total by Verizon.  Keeping the incredible network of Verizon in our global partnership family was very important to us,” said Sr. Vice President of Global Partnerships J.T. McWalters. “As the Magic look to continue innovating and offering fans the most legendary experiences, Verizon continues to play a large part in what we can accomplish from a technology perspective. We look forward to working together to bring a heightened connected experience to our fans when they’re in the Kia Center.”

A fast-growing retail brand opening new locations in urban markets across America, with Orlando being the latest expansion market, Total by Verizon features a broad lineup of devices, generous benefits and no-contract service plans for both single-line accounts and families for as low as $25 a line per month for unlimited 5G data. Perks on select plans include unlimited calling to five countries of your choice, Disney+, access to 5G Ultra Wideband, and generous hotspot allocations.

Several fan engagement opportunities are made possible by Verizon’s 5G connectivity within the Magic’s Kia Center. Total by Verizon will continue to enhance the fan experience in multiple ways:

  • Highlighting a new in-game technology that allows fans to display photos and videos on the center-hung videoboard and on TVs throughout the arena.
  • Providing technology that allows fans the opportunity to stream video directly from their phone to the center-hung. Not only fans attending Magic games can participate, fans watching on NBA League Pass will also have the ability to submit or stream from wherever they are watching.
  • The partnership will also include in-arena signage during all Magic home games and other brand integration.

Total by Verizon will also be the presenting sponsor of the Magic mobile app. Other partnership highlights include integration on the Magic’s social media platforms with player content pieces including the Mic’d Up series with sound from players mic’d up in-game. In addition, as part of the Magic’s 35th anniversary season celebration, Total by Verizon will be featured on the Magic Evolution series featuring conversations between Magic legends and current players.

“The Magic is all about heart and hustle, and that’s exactly who our brand was created for – the hard workers who go the extra mile in everything they do to win,” said Angie Klein, President of the Verizon Value organization. “We’re committed to Orlando and ready to meet its value conscious consumers where they are with the savings they need at our new exclusive store locations throughout the city.”

Verizon technology is currently integrated into the AdventHealth Training Center. The 130,000-square-foot facility is the practice and training home to the Orlando Magic with Verizon continuing to cover all of its wireless telecommunication needs. The new downtown, state-of-the-art training center for the Magic team is also a destination sports medicine center to Central Florida.
