UNCASVILLE, Conn. (May 2, 2017) – MyPillow will help the Connecticut Sun tip off its 15th season on May 13th, serving as the presenting partner on opening night at Mohegan Sun Arena.
“MyPillow is excited to team up with the Connecticut Sun as the presenting partner of opening night, especially as the franchise tips off a season-long celebration of its 15th year at Mohegan Sun Arena,” said Joe Schmieg, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for MyPillow. “This is our first WNBA partnership and we’re ecstatic it is with the Connecticut Sun, who have the most passionate fans in the league!”

“Tipping off a new season is always special, but with the addition of MyPillow as our opening night partner, we’ve been able to take it up a notch,” Vice President of Sports Amber Cox said. “Thanks to MyPillow, every fan will receive a t-shirt, which will allow us to deck Mohegan Sun Arena out in orange and create an awesome atmosphere for our team. Our fans are the best and most passionate in the WNBA and we appreciate MyPillow joining forces with us to make their experience even better and provide our team with even more of a home court advantage.”
