Las Vegas, Nev. – America First Credit Union (AFCU) has joined with the Raiders in an expansive partnership, which will include AFCU being named as the Raider's exclusive credit union and official debit card partner as well as introducing a charitable donation component and a community outreach program to support local small businesses.
"The Raiders and AFCU are both committed to excellence," said AFCU president and CEO John Lund. "We both are dedicated to engaging, growing, and supporting the community. This collaboration is the start of a long partnership that will strengthen our entire community."
"The Raiders are excited to partner with America First Credit Union in these activations, particularly those that positively impact our community," said Raiders President, Marc Badain.
The Raiders partnership includes a program to support small business owners in Las Vegas. More details about the program will be released as the inaugural season in Las Vegas approaches in 2020. The relationship also includes a charitable effort termed First Down for the Community where each Raiders first down during the preseason and regular season results in a donation from the America First Foundation to the Raiders Foundation.
AFCU entered into the exclusive multi-year partnership with the Raiders this month. The partnership will take effect when the Raiders begin playing its home games at Allegiant Stadium for the 2020 National Football League season.
With this partnership, AFCU extends its brand footprint in the area, having already enjoyed a partnership with the Vegas Golden Knights, Las Vegas Aviators at the new Las Vegas Ballpark and the Las Vegas Lights FC.
