Jazz, Qualtrics partner on jersey sponsorship for charity

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) The Utah Jazz will add a corporate sponsorship patch to their jerseys next season and use it to raise money for cancer research.

The team has partnered with Qualtrics to put a patch on the upper left-hand corner of the uniform that reads ''5 FOR THE FIGHT .'' The 5 For The Fight charity encourages people to donate $5 to cancer research through its website 5ForTheFight.org with the goal of raising $50 million.

The NBA is allowing teams to begin wearing corporate logos on jerseys beginning with the 2017-18 season.
