As the official Credit Union of UMass Athletics, we are proud to be the lead sponsor at several sports games throughout the year.
The first game we sponsored for the 2018/2019 season was the men's ice hockey game in October. For this game, we sweetened the Chuck-A-Puck pot by $500, and even better, UMass won 6-1!
Our women's basketball sponsorship game was held in January for National Girls & Women in Sports Day. We had over 75 staff members and their families attend the game and some brought their children to the clinic that was hosted afterwards. We donated t-shirts for every child that attended the post-game clinic, as well as a $500 check towards sports equipment for the lucky winner of our social media contest. The game was extremely close and the team only lost by one point!
The latest sponsorship game we hosted was a men's basketball game in February. The game against St.Joseph's was a thriller, and the Minutemen won with 2.7 seconds left in the game, 80-79! About 70 employees and their families were able to come out to watch this exciting game. Our CEO, Rich Kump, got to take part in a half-time interview, and our Board Chairman Bob Harrison and his grandson Nathan participated in a Sponsorship ceremony.
Please see some photo's for these three games below.
