Mobil 1™ is the Official Motor Oil of the NBA
ExxonMobil and the National Basketball Association (NBA) have established the league's largest and most comprehensive partnership ever in the motor oil category. Through this partnership, the Mobil 1™ brand will be the official motor oil of the NBA, the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the NBA Development League (NBA D-League) in the United States and China.
Marking a new chapter in the successful partnership
ExxonMobil and five-time NBA All-Star Anthony Davis have joined forces. Davis will play a leading role for the Mobil 1 brand, highlighting the latest products and innovations for the Official Motor Oil of the NBA.
Known for his elite offense and dominant defense, Davis is the perfect person to spotlight the outstanding performance and protection of Mobil 1™ Annual Protection motor oil. The multi-year partnership begins with Davis as the hero of the new Mobil 1 Annual Protection motor oil advertising campaign.
Two histories of high performance
World-class excellence doesn’t happen overnight. For more than 40 years, ExxonMobil engineers have been advancing the science and technology behind every drop of Mobil 1 motor oil; Mobil 1 was the first globally available fully synthetic automotive motor oil, and today it’s still the world’s leading synthetic motor oil brand. Nothing beats Mobil 1 in overall performance.
And nothing beats the NBA when it comes to basketball. An unrivaled mix of international talent and athleticism, the NBA is widely recognized as the best basketball league in the world. Since it was founded in 1946, the league has grown from 11 to 30 teams as it continues to produce an incredible list of all-stars, MVPs and champions.
Another great assist
Bonded by a dedication to high performance, ExxonMobil and the Mobil 1 brand are proud to partner with the NBA. The NBA relationship adds to ExxonMobil’s portfolio of international sports and sporting event partnerships. The partnership also represents one of the first associations between Mobil 1 motor oil and a major sport other than motorsports. The Mobil 1 brand can already be found supporting many other high-performance efforts – from NASCAR® to Formula 1® to top automakers and modern engines. Engineered for extremes, Mobil 1 advanced full synthetic motor oil is proven to deliver exceptional performance and protection down to -40 degrees Fahrenheit and up to 500 degrees Fahrenheit.
