Arizona Financial Credit Union renews partnership with Phoenix Rising FC as Credit Union Partner
By Brian O'Malley - Friday Jul 28, 2023
Locally-based financial cooperative Arizona Financial Credit Union (AZFCU) announced today its partnership renewal as the official credit union of Phoenix Rising Football Club for the sixth consecutive season. Building on two previous multi-year engagements, this new agreement extended the credit union’s relationship with the soccer club through this current 2023 season.

With a loyal and thriving fanbase, Phoenix Rising has built a strong reputation in the Valley because of its hyper-local focus on building strong relationships with the community and fans that support them, specifically their young fans. AZFCU quickly identified and aligned with its mission and sought the partnership back in 2017 to bring awareness of its financial products and services to the team’s fan base and use as an opportunity to promote financial literacy for the youth soccer fans in the Valley.

“We couldn’t be prouder of this partnership renewal with Phoenix Rising and the impact we will continue to make in the community together, especially as we connect with young fans,” said Jason Paprocki, EVP & Chief Opportunity. “One of our core missions at Arizona Financial is to set our youth on a path to good money management skills and the club has completely embraced this mission with us. Whether we’re connecting with their young fanbase at matches or soccer camps to educate them about financial literacy with our youth savings accounts, we know our impact will go a long way.”

As part of the partnership agreement, the credit union will continue to offer exclusive co-branded products like the Phoenix Rising FC Visa® debit card and a special $100 offer for Phoenix Rising fans who open an account with the credit union.. The partnership also includes discounted tickets for Arizona Financial Credit Union members, giveaways and home game theme nights. The two organizations have paired up throughout the partnership on community-facing initiatives like the Kicks for Kids campaign in support of Valley of the Sun United Way and will explore additional opportunities moving forward.

“Arizona Financial Credit Union has been a tremendous partner of Phoenix Rising FC since our inaugural season and we are delighted to extend our relationship with them for another year,” said Rising President Bobby Dulle. “As an Arizona based cooperative that is committed to the local communities, we will continue to work with them to educate younger consumers on financial based initiatives.”

One of the most affordable sporting event tickets in the Valley, Rising is now in the heart of Phoenix at 38th Street and Washington, just a few blocks from Arizona Financial’s headquarters.
