Comets Partner with Command

Today the Missouri Comets and Kansas City Command announced a partnership deal that on face value looks like a good move for both sides. Both teams have their share of followers and sponsors, but a coordinated effort between both of them actually will benefit them in the long run when it comes to sponsorship dollars. The release though seems to focus more on what their partnership will do for the Command instead of the Comets. It talked about the combined staff selling season tickets for the Command. That's not totally surprising considering the Command play at the Sprint Center, which seats over 3 times the number of seats that are in the Comets home, the Independence Event Center. It seems like it's a big deal to support the Command. But the Comets are also getting their name out there more with this, and the combined efforts will certainly help them hopefully get more in sponsorship dollars as they'll be able to sell full year sponsorship by combining it with sponsorship with the Command. I think this is a very good move for both sides to improve their presence in the city.

I would agree. Soccer teams partnering with a football team seams a little weird though to me.

But if the Comets put a better team on the field because of it. I'm all for it.
