Essentia Water, an ionized alkaline water, is now the Official Alkaline Water of the Brooklyn Nets. This partnership, the brand’s first with an NBA team, begins with the 2023-24 NBA season and promises to keep Nets players and Barclays Center attendees hydrated and resilient with ionized alkaline water for years to come.

“Essentia has a longstanding commitment to working with athletes and dream-chasers who are dedicated to their game and know the importance of hydration, so this partnership with the Nets was a perfect match,” said Zola Kane, head of marketing at Essentia Water, in a statement. “Hydration is key to staying resilient, and resilience is important to chasing our ambitions ― whether you’re on the court or in the stands ― so we’re thrilled Nets players and Barclays Center guests can experience the benefits of ionized alkaline water to help unlock their full potential.”

Attendees of games and events at Barclays Center now can find Essentia distributed throughout the venue at concessions, grab and go stations, clubs and suites. Essentia also will be available to players pre-and post-game as a Locker Room beverage provider and during training as a HSS Training Center beverage provider.
