VantageOne Credit Union has kicked in to continue supporting soccer in the community.

The credit union has renewed its five-year sponsorship agreement with the Vernon Soccer Association.

“If it wasn’t for the support of VantageOne the soccer centre wouldn’t be where it is today,” said  Gavin Smart, VSA vice-president.

“VantageOne is an extraordinary community partner that supports sport and family.”

The Marshall Field soccer facility was named the VantageOne Soccer Centre in 2006 when the credit union entered into an initial five-year sponsorship agreement with the VSA.

The VSA has a membership base that includes more than 3,000 players on over 200 teams, with players ranging in age from four to mid-60s.

“VantageOne is pleased to continue our relationship with the Vernon Soccer Association and their exceptional facility serving the needs of our area,” said Glenn Benischek, CEO of VantageOne.

“The VSA and all partner organizations do an exceptional job of running soccer programs in our area and this facility is integral at putting Vernon on the map as a location of soccer excellence.

“We are pleased to support the organizations that make the VantageOne Soccer Centre a success and a valued asset in our community.”

The partnership between VantageOne Credit Union and the VSA is a five-year sponsorship agreement worth more than $75,000 and includes naming rights through to 2016.
