Osage Casino and the Tulsa Shock announced they have entered into a multi-year partnership, beginning with the 2013 season.
“Osage Casino is delighted to enter into this partnership with the Tulsa Shock. We are proud to help support the growth of and share in the successes of our local professional basketball team. This is truly a win/win scenario for the Osage Nation and the Tulsa Shock,” said Neil Cornelius, CEO of Osage Casino. “Our Tulsa location is the closest casino to downtown. It makes perfect sense to spread awareness of Osage Casino directly into the downtown community.”
“We are thrilled for the Tulsa Shock to be entering into a marquee partnership with Osage Casino,” said WNBA President Laurel J. Richie. “In the years ahead, we look forward to leveraging the many synergies that brought them together. It is an exciting time for the Tulsa Shock and Osage Casino.”
The Shock’s home opener will be May 27th at the BOK Center.
