DALLAS – SMU Athletics and its multimedia rightsholder, LEARFIELD’s Mustang Sports Properties, announced a first university sponsorship of its kind with Grand Caliber. The online retailer, which also operates a Dallas showroom on McKinney Avenue, has signed on as the “Official Luxury Watch Sponsor of SMU Athletics”.
Grand Caliber’s sponsorship with SMU allows for distinct visibility for the retailer among Mustang fans. Specifically, later this fall, fans will have the opportunity to win a luxury watch during half-court shot promotions during men’s and women’s home basketball games. Throughout the year, there will be enter-to-win social campaigns as well.
Grand Caliber’s mission is to be the leading trusted online source for selling and buying authentic new and pre-owned watches. The company’s authenticity guarantee provides for full money-back refund as needed. Grand Caliber’s showroom at 2811 McKinney Avenue.
