(Nov. 19, 2012) -- UTSA and San Antonio Federal Credit Union (SACU) announce that SACU is now UTSA's financial institution athletics sponsor. SACU also pledged an investment in excellence to UTSA for new opportunities and areas of greatest needs.
As the official financial institution of Roadrunners Athletics, SACU will have marketing rights at UTSA Athletics events such as home football and basketball games. Additionally, 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.
"The UTSA and SACU missions of service to the San Antonio community are well aligned and we are thrilled to formalize our partnership," said SACU Chief Marketing Officer Laura Johnston. 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.
"We are extremely grateful to SACU for supporting UTSA in a way that will enrich both our academic and athletics programs," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo. "We are particularly excited to partner with SACU on ways to bring financial education and planning to our students to better prepare them as they enter professional life."
The investments of SACU and other UTSA supporters helps fund programs that encourage student success and support the university's designation as an emerging research institution while advancing progress toward Tier One status.
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.
Since 2009, UTSA has raised $110 million through the We Are UTSA capital campaign. The university has a goal of reaching $120 million by 2015.
