Scott Credit Union (SCU), based in Edwardsville, will sponsor the St. Louis Cardinals baseball franchise for the next three years.
“We are extremely proud to be a partner with such a historic and successful organization,” SCU President and CEO Frank Padak said. “It is exciting for us to have our organization and the Scott Credit Union brand tied to the long-running tradition of success of the St. Louis Cardinals.”
Scott Credit Union’s agreement with the team includes naming rights for the MVP deck in left center field at Busch Stadium. It also includes scoreboard ads, sponsorship of the promotional giveaway night Aug. 26 and player appearances.
“The naming rights to the MVP deck is big for us,” SCU Chief Marketing Officer Adam Koishor said. “There are 28 all-inclusive seats in the covered deck area. It has been really great watching the Scott Credit Union lighted signs go up in the stadium.”
The credit union will also be the main sponsor of the St. Louis Cardinals Player Ticket Program, which provides tickets to children from area youth organizations. The guests receiving tickets to the game will also receive T-shirts, food vouchers and the opportunity to meet with a player before the game.
“We are delighted to add such a community-driven organization like Scott Credit Union to our partner family,” Thane van Breusegen, Cardinals vice president of corporate sales/marketing and stadium entertainment, said. “Its commitment to their members and the St. Louis area makes SCU an ideal partner for our organization. Furthermore, the MVP deck is an exciting and unique area of our stadium for fans to take in a game and we couldn’t be more pleased to partner with Scott Credit Union to carry on that excitement.”
