“Coveroos are great because they offer so many different options. I can easily change designs depending on which of my former teammates I am visiting! When I'm in the Bay-area, I go gold. When I'm in New York I go green. When I'm in Oakland I go black!”
Coveroo also has partnerships with Major League Baseball (MLB), the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), allowing sports fan to customize their phone with their favorite mascots, logos, players and uniforms.
