OTE is a eight-team basketball league that offers a unique pathway to the next level for elite 17-19 year-old players from around the world. While playing in the league, players receive cutting-edge training and academics, as well as unparalleled resources both on and off the court to prepare them for college and professional basketball.
Putting the needs and priorities of OTE players at the forefront of the partnership, Bevel will be unveiling the new Bevel Shop, an OTE Players Only Barbershop inside OTE Arena in the heart of Atlanta, providing head-to-toe grooming and personal care to the athletes. Furthermore, Bevel products will be provided to all players to use on and, especially, off the court.
Bevel X Overtime Elite
Bevels partnership with OTE is a continuation of the brands track record of ensuring the authentic voice of Black culture and community are heard, served, strengthened, and uplifted. The partnership will include an educational grooming workshop for the OTE players with an elite Bevel Barber. The workshops will aim to inform the next generation of hoopers, how to start and maintain their head-to-toe grooming routines with the best products created specifically for their needs, on the road and at home.
Being the official grooming partner of Overtime Elite (OTE) allows us to introduce Bevels award-winning, barber-approved line of head-to-toe grooming products to this rising generation of hoopers and their fans, said Damon Frost, CEO, Walker & Company Brands (makers of BEVEL). "Weve partnered with Overtime several times before and the entire Bevel team is profoundly excited to run it back.
"We are thrilled that Bevel has joined the league as our official grooming partner, said Jack Jenkins, VP, League Partnerships, Overtime. The Bevel Shop at OTE Arena features carefully designed products and provides players with an elevated grooming experience, allowing them to feel their best on and off the court. We couldn't be more excited to tip off season three with Bevel on board."
