Army Athletics Drafts Official Bank

The United States Military Academy has agreed to a partnership that will designate Provident Bank as the “Official Bank of Army Athletics” with exclusive bank sponsorship for all Army athletic events including Army football, men’s and women’s basketball, hockey and lacrosse.

As part of the exclusive bank sponsorship, Provident Bank will have an area where fans can learn more about the bank’s products, enter promotions, play games and win promotional items. In addition, Provident will hold an in-branch promotion from Sept. 27 through October 25 where customers can enter to win tickets to the Army-Air Force game on November 6.

“We are honored to partner with such a prestigious and revered institution as the United States Military Academy and one of the best known brands in American sports -- the Army Black Knights,” said George Strayton, President and Chief Executive Officer of Provident Bank. “Our partnership with West Point is part of our ongoing commitment to the communities we serve.”

“We are pleased to have Provident Bank as our exclusive bank sponsor. Like West Point itself, Provident Bank has strong roots in the Hudson Valley and a history of commitment to the local community. We are delighted to have them on the Army Athletics Team,” said (representative) of the Army Athletic Association.
