LOS ANGELES, CA – Pechanga Resort Casino has announced a multi-year partnership with the LA Clippers that makes it the exclusive tribal casino of the team. The relationship was unveiled during the Clippers pre-season game at Arena, when the Clippers presented a jersey to Pechanga leaders to celebrate the new relationship. 

“We are very excited to partner with the LA Clippers and support our broader Southern California community,” said Andrew Masiel, Sr., President of the Pechanga Development Corporation. “This partnership will also mean more opportunities for Pechanga’s guests to truly unique events and experiences in LA sports. Our tribe’s roots run deep through Southern California and like us, the Clippers are committed to using their platform to make a meaningful difference.”

“We are thrilled to partner with Pechanga Resort Casino and work together to serve our fans and community,” said Clippers Chief Global Partnerships Officer Scott Sonnenberg. “It was an honor to celebrate with them at our preseason game last night.”

The partnership will include community events, Clippers watch parties and in-game promotions, as well as in-arena signage, digital and social media activations, broadcast integrations and hospitality elements. Pechanga will showcase its tribal culture at the Clippers game on Nov. 6 in honor of Native American Heritage Month.
