He went on to say that the insurer is committed to its support of the athletes and championships through the NCAA while “engaging creatively” with the fans of those sports and athletes, as it “elevates” the experience of the games.

He added that they are looking forward to working with them to support the student athletes participating in all the NCAA championships.

According to Warner Brothers Discovery executive vice president of ad sales Jon Diament, the corporate partners of the NCAA play a vital role in the March Madness success, encouraging connections for both student athletes and the championship audiences throughout the length of the tournament. He added that they are also excited about the return of the insurer and that they are keen to develop further collaboration.
