CARY, N.C. (May 10, 2018) – North Carolina Football Club has partnered with Coastal Credit Union, a not-for-profit, member-owned, financial cooperative, offering a full range of financial products and services. As a result, Coastal Credit Union will be named the Official Credit Union of North Carolina Football Club.
As a cornerstone of the relationship, the box office at WakeMed Soccer Park will be renamed Coastal Credit Union Box Office. Through the multi-year partnership, Coastal will also be able to provide its members with exclusive benefits, including buy-one-get-one offers on all season tickets and individual game tickets and on-field VIP experiences.
“The naming of our box office is one of our most prominent sponsorship assets, and we are proud to partner with such a strong local brand in Coastal Credit Union,” said North Carolina Football Club Senior Vice President of Corporate Partnerships & Marketing Steven de Haseth. “Coastal’s commitment to engaging and growing its brand in the community is in line with our core values and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership.”
With this partnership, Coastal extends its brand footprint in the area, having already enjoyed a longstanding partnership with the Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek and the recently-announced partnership with Kane Realty to rename Midtown Park at North Hills, Coastal Credit Union Midtown Park.
“With our new mission being ‘Bank Better to Live Better’, we’re taking strategic measures to be more visible in our community in places where we know our members live, work, and play,” says Coastal President and CEO, Chuck Purvis. “Each of these sponsorships allows us to engage in our community while strengthening Coastal’s brand and providing exclusive benefits to our members at the same time. It’s a win-win for all involved.”
