B.A.S.S. and Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC), which operates the nation’s largest refining system and supplies fuel to thousands of retail locations from coast to coast, have expanded their relationship for the 2023 season, officials announced today. Not only will the brand continue to serve as the title sponsor for Bassmaster Studios and as a supporting sponsor for the Bassmaster Tournament Trail, but for the first time in the three-year partnership Marathon has now stepped up as the title sponsor for the Elite Series event on Lake Murray (April 20-23).
“Marathon is extremely excited to expand our sponsorship with B.A.S.S. to include the Elite Series event on Lake Murray,” said John Rice, manager, advertising & brand Management at Marathon Petroleum. “Partnering with Bassmaster is a win-win for both brands and we look forward to rooting on some of the best anglers in the world at the Marathon Bassmaster Elite tournament.”
Said B.A.S.S. CEO Chase Anderson: “We are proud to partner with Marathon to reach our anglers and fans. Whether anglers are traveling to a dream destination or hauling their boat to home waters, Marathon can help them reach their destination.”
