MIAMI, FL, October 20, 2021 – Today, BioSteel Sports Nutrition Inc. (“BioSteel”) announced it’s continuing to fan the flames of its ever-expanding courtside prowess, becoming the Official Sports Drink of the Miami HEAT. The signing adds to the brand’s stacked lineup of partnerships with some of the most historic franchises in basketball, including the Los Angeles Lakers, Brooklyn Nets, Dallas Mavericks, Philadelphia 76ers and Toronto Raptors, and cements its reputation as the hydration drink of choice for teams and trainers looking for a cleaner, healthier hydration option for their players and their communities.
Beginning with the upcoming 2021-2022 season, the robust, multi-channel partnership will provide BioSteel with a year-round integration of its brand and products on and off the court. This includes hydrating the players throughout the season, bench set ups at home games, promotions through digital and social media and a presence in the locker room, training center and in-arena signage.
“As we continue to grow the presence of our brand in one of the most iconic cities in America, we can’t wait to bring Clean. Healthy. Hydration. to the HEAT this season as the team’s official sports drink,” said Michael Cammalleri, Co-CEO and Co-Founder of BioSteel. “With more teams and trainers than ever seeking a cleaner upgrade to their daily hydration routines, we’re proud to offer a sugar-free, better for you option to the team’s athletes and the fans in the community.”

That is the ultimate element of HEAT Culture.”
