ESPN Events has cut ties with an Albuquerque-based production company that signed on just weeks ago to sponsor the New Mexico Bowl.
ESPN spokeswoman Anna Negron tells the Albuquerque Journal in an email that it terminated the sponsorship agreement with DreamHouse on Friday and that the focus remains on ensuring a quality experience for fans.
The DreamHouse New Mexico Bowl logo and all references to it have been scrubbed from the bowl’s website.
The game is scheduled to be played Dec. 21.
The newspaper had reported that the fledgling DreamHouse has no business license with the city of Albuquerque and that CEO Eric G. Martinez faced multiple judgments for unpaid debts. Martinez did not return messages seeking comment.
Stories on the Enchantment Sports website first raised questions about Martinez’s background.
