Jazz jersey sponsorship patch continues to gather acclaim

After being unveiled on Monday, the Utah Jazz's jersey sponsorship patch has received plenty of praise for its effort to raise money for cancer research. Sportslogos.net added more compliment fuel to the fire with its review of the sponsorship patch.

Demetrius Bell wrote, "While other teams have gone the corporate route with their sponsorship, it's very cool to see the Jazz get creative by deciding to go down the route of using their ad space for charity. Plus, from a visual standpoint, this works out like a thumb and seamlessly blends in with the rest of the uniform. It's not distracting and it's being used for a good cuase. This is as good as it'll get when it comes ot jersey sponsorships, so hats off to the Jazz and Qualtrics for their efforts here. "
