As Arizona Football kicks off the season with a new coach, Vantage West Credit Union kicks off its fourth year as the official coin toss sponsor. As part of the sponsorship, University of Arizona Head Football Coach, Rich Rodriguez will be featured in print, online, television and radio ads, and on billboards. The centerpiece of the promotion is the new limited edition 2012 Vantage West Arizona Football Commemorative Coin.

Anyone can get one of the new commemorative coins just by taking advantage of a qualifying service. Coins will be available at all Vantage West branches during football season or while supplies last.

Coach Rodriguez recently completed the recording of the television commercial at the Vantage West University branch. He commented, “I appreciate the support that our football program has received from Vantage West, and I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the commemorative coin promotion.”

President/CEO Robert D. Ramirez said, “Vantage West has always been a strong supporter and a big fan of UA Athletics because it helps build community. Like UA Football, Vantage West Credit Union has a rich tradition in Arizona.” In fact, a large portion of Vantage West’s membership consists of UA students, alumni and faculty.

Ramirez added, “We are excited to be part of a new era in Arizona Football and we are looking forward to the new season.”

Vantage West Credit Union is Southern Arizona’s largest, with $1.1 Billion in assets. The credit union has 15 branches in Pima, Pinal and Maricopa counties.

Advertising featuring Coach Rodriguez is scheduled to start running on Sunday, Aug 26. Photos and video from the recent recording of the TV spot and an early copy of the commercial and print ad is available upon request.
