LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Louisville Sports Properties today introduced a multi-year relationship with KORT to serve as “Official Sports Rehab Provider of the Louisville Cardinals.”
Throughout the state, KORT (Kentucky Orthopedic Rehab Team) has over 60 clinics specializing in orthopedics, sports and industrial medicine and Rehab@Home. The physical and occupational therapy provider has operated locally for more than three decades and has been a partner with Select Medical for over two decades.

KORT will begin aligning with the Cardinals this month as the 2019-20 collegiate athletics season gets under way.
Most notably, KORT will receive brand exposure through Louisville Cardinals’ digital and social platforms as well as have use of the Cards’ logo. In addition to visibility on GoCards.com and other official digital channels, KORT will have permanent signage on the center hung scoreboard inside KFC Yum! Center – home of the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball programs.
“We’re thrilled to be involved with U of L and support its athletics programming and the hard work and dedication of the university’s hundreds of student-athletes,” said KORT President Jason Chambers. “We place great significance in being able to give back to the community in which we serve, so we’re excited for this integrated partnership with the Cards to build an even deeper relationship with the Louisville community, the campus community and fans.”
KORT’s relationship with the Cardinals also provides for visibility across multiple sports through exposure in print programs (football, men’s and women’s basketball) and radio (football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball). Complementing its overall Cards’ sponsorship, KORT will receive digital signage with multiple sports in the fall, winter and spring, and have digital and permanent signage at the football stadium.
