San Antonio, Texas (PRWEB) February 25, 2015
Firstmark Credit Union has agreed to a five-year sponsorship of the new Alamo Stadium Digital Scoreboard. The scoreboard is the finishing touch on extensive renovations of the historic stadium.
“Firstmark Credit Union has enjoyed a long-standing relationship with San Antonio Independent School District,” said Leon Ewing, President/CEO of Firstmark Credit Union. “So, when Firstmark was approached by the District, it made sense for us to become involved.”
"We are pleased to be able to team up, yet again, with Firstmark Credit Union,” SAISD Superintendent Dr. Sylvester Perez said. “We have had a long-standing partnership with Firstmark and their sponsorship of Alamo Stadium’s new state-of-the-art video scoreboard highlights, quite literally, the organization’s commitment to the SAISD community.”
Improvements to Alamo Stadium maintained the facility’s historic integrity while incorporating new technology. The new scoreboard is approximately 44-feet wide by 24-feet tall. Its digital video display will provide a more personal experience for game-goers. Comparable to scoreboards found at many Division I universities, this scoreboard will offer video replays and close-up images of student athletes, band and other performers, as well as fans in the stands.
“We think this is an outstanding partnership and a great way to show our support for both education and our community,” added Ewing.
The stadium will be used for more than 140 events throughout the year, including football and soccer games, track events, multiple marching band contests, and other community events.
