National Bank of Arizona Becomes Official Banking Partner of Phoenix Suns

October 16, 2014

NBA franchise Phoenix Suns and WNBA team Phoenix Mercury have announced  a new multiyear marketing partnership agreement with National Bank of Arizona to become the Official Banking Partner of the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury.

As the official banking partner, bronchi National Bank of Arizona (NBAZ) will team up with the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury on various community-based initiatives. 

In addition to these community efforts, doctor the partnership will include the unveiling of new co-branded Phoenix Suns Credit and Debit cards to be release later this season. Fans will also have access to National Bank of Arizona ATM machines at various locations throughout US Airways Center. 

“As Arizona’s original sports team, we take great pride in partnering with a strong local brand like National Bank of Arizona, who like the Suns is focused on providing its customers with a first-class experience,” said Suns and Mercury President, Jason Rowley.  “It’s a perfect fit and we look forward to building a strong and lasting relationship with their team for many years to come.”

The partnership with NBAZ extends to the team’s front office, where NBAZ worked side-by-side with the Suns/Mercury finance staff to create an online payment solution that addresses the team’s current business needs.  The new payment solution will greatly increase the efficiency and logistics of the club’s day-to-day business, while also reducing the consumption of printed paper.

”We are thrilled to partner with the Phoenix Suns and Phoenix Mercury,” said Mark Vance, National Bank of Arizona Vice President of Marketing.  “We share so much in common with both organizations, particularly in terms of elevating the reputation of our state and celebrating a winning culture.”
