“The partnership between the Squadron and Pearl River Resort is another example of our continued elevation and growth within the G League, Birmingham and the Southeast,” said Squadron General Manager Leslie Claybrook in a release. “Partnering in this way with Pearl River Resort shows we are committed to providing a first-class experience for our players, coaches and fans.”

Pearl River Resort has been a Squadron corporate partner since the franchise first started playing in Birmingham in 2021. The Mississippi-based gaming resort’s logo will also appear on the goal padding and Legacy Arena’s court during Squadron games.

The Squadron host the Austin Spurs at 7 p.m. for its season opener.
