UMB Bank, professional viagra n.a., a subsidiary of UMB Financial Corporation, has announced a partnership with Sporting Kansas City.

The Major League Soccer (MLS) team plays at the state-of-the-art Sporting Park located in Kansas City, Kan.

UMB Bank is a “First Team Partner,” Sporting KC’s most elite level of sponsorship, and is the soccer club’s official commercial banking sponsor. Additionally, as the UMB Field Club sponsor, UMB will welcome fans to the complex through the new UMB Premium Entrance. UMB will be the theme night sponsor on August 31 to celebrate the new multi-year partnership.

“The leadership and the team at Sporting KC have made a tremendous investment in the community through the new stadium and their many philanthropic activities,” Peter deSilva, president and chief operating officer of UMB Bank, said in a blog post. “At UMB we have that same strong commitment to give back.”

“We look forward to partnering with such a world-class organization like Sporting KC,” said Jim Rine, president of UMB’s Kansas City region. “Our combined resources will allow us to have an even greater impact on our Kansas City community.”

The two organizations also align in their overall corporate values.

“We are proud to announce the strategic alignment with UMB Bank. One of the key attributes we look for in a company, when evaluating a partnership opportunity, is how they mesh with our brand and vision. The fact that they have such a great presence in Kansas City and how much they do locally is consistent with our mission,” said Jake Reid, Chief Revenue Officer for Sporting Kansas City and Sporting Park.

“Adding a flagship local company like UMB is very important and incredibly valuable to us,” said Robb Heineman, CEO of Sporting Kansas City. “We love the fact that it continues the theme of supporting local companies and we will do everything we can to uplift their brand in the community in relation to ours.”

UMB has a well-established history of partnering with local sports organizations and entertainment venues in the Kansas City area, including the Sprint Center and Arrowhead Stadium.
