The Military Basketball Association (MBA) is saluting Military Appreciation Month and Mental Health Awareness Month on DIRECTV!
DIRECTV is the presenting sponsor for the Military Basketball Association’s 2023 Playoffs and Championship Game on Memorial Day weekend at the Charles Koch Arena in Wichita, Kansas. Sports fans can watch the game on the CBS Sports Network from May 26th to May 28th, 2023 at 6:00 p.m.
“DIRECTV is synonymous with an outstanding entertainment and sports experience. That said, it is their exceptional commitment and dedication to the men and women who serve in our military that truly sets them apart, and we are extremely grateful for their support of our league. Both Military Appreciation Month and Mental Health Awareness Month are recognized in May each year, and the MBA is honored to join forces with DIRECTV to promote the resiliency of our heroes,” said MBA Founder and Commissioner Mike Meyers.
Founded in 2017, the MBA brings awareness to various behavioral health concerns facing veterans by organizing local and national events promoting military athletes. With its “Life Through Basketball” mission, the organization strives to provide positive opportunities to members of the military.
The MBA is dedicated to supporting our military by educating communities on the challenges and stigmas surrounding post-traumatic stress disorder in addition to providing early intervention strategies to help prevent the alarming rate of veteran suicides.
“DIRECTV is extremely honored to be the presenting sponsor of the Military Basketball Association’s Championship Weekend. As a Marine veteran serving two combat tours, I know first-hand the mental challenges that our troops face during and post service. At DIRECTV, we have developed initiatives to focus on those issues and we are thrilled to partner with an organization that is also taking that initiative head-on,” said Chief Sales and Service Officer of DIRECTV Mike Wittrock.
