SAN ANTONIO (11/13/12)--San Antonio FCU (SACU) has announced a sponsorship with the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) to become the "Official Financial Institution for Roadrunners Athletics."
"UTSA and SACU's missions of service to the San Antonio community are well aligned and we are thrilled to formalize our partnership," said Laura Johnston, SACU chief marketing officer.
As UTSA's financial institution athletics sponsor, SACU will have marketing rights at UTSA athletics events, such as home football and basketball games. Also, SACU will sponsor the UTSA student section during regular season football games and will be included in UTSA athletics media promotions.
The sponsorship opportunity also allows UTSA and SACU to jointly offer a series of programs to UTSA students on the importance of responsible financial management. Also, SACU's pledge for excellence will allow the university to allocate financial resources to students for scholarships, academic programs and other opportunities over a five-year period.
To mark the partnership, Frank Burk, chairman of the board of SACU, tossed the coin at the Roadrunners Oct. 27 home game against the Utah State Aggies.
