First National Bank (FNB) and the Pittsburgh Penguins have extended their relationship, with the banking giants coming on board with a deal as sponsor of premium spaces at PPG Paints Arena and a Penguins Founding Partner.
FNB’s relationship with the Penguins goes back a year, with the bank signing up as the lead tenant in a 26-story tower being built at the former Civic Arena site in the lower Hill District–a project being developed by the Penguins.
Beginning with the 2020/21 hockey season, fans can watch games from the “F.N.B. Club,” a premium seating club on the west side of the arena and will enter through the FNB Gate along Centre Avenue, across from Logan Street. FNB also will provide onsite access to banking services and information through three ATMs and a new F.N.B. digital center, a space serving as a hub to connect fans with promotions, interactive experiences and banking technology.
“The Penguins are a premier sports organization and are part of the spirit of our headquarters city,” said Vincent Delie, Jr., Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of F.N.B. Corporation, said in a statement. “We are proud to support such a valuable cultural asset and to add this partnership to our extensive commitment to Pittsburgh and the organizations, projects and experiences that make it so unique.”
“Our partnership with F.N.B. unites two organizations that share a dedication to excellence and to improving the quality of life in the city we both call home,” said David Morehouse, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Penguins via statement. “We are excited to work together to continue building a transformational partnership to show our appreciation, give back to our fans and invest in the local community.”
Signage conversion at PPG Paints Arena begins immediately and will be in place for the start of the Penguins’ preseason.
