Hofstra University is spinning out those press releases this fall. First the 75th anniversary of the school, then the official opening of the medical school, a deal with WRHU to broadcast Islanders games and now Hofstra Athletics inked a three-year corporate deal with Capital One Bank.
This record-setting partnership represents the largest multi-year sponsorship for Hofstra Athletics and includes prominent Capital One branding throughout the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex and James M. Shuart Stadium, title sponsor rights of a men’s lacrosse game as well as fan giveaways and on-field promotions to promote the partnership, according to University officials.
“We are very pleased to partner with Capital One Bank and thrilled to add such a dynamic organization and well-respected brand to our sponsorship program,” said Hofstra University Director of Athletics Jack Hayes. “This model partnership will provide valuable, additional resources for our student-athletes and coaches and simultaneously deliver extensive exposure for Capital One within the Hofstra University and greater Long Island community.”
Additional sponsorship elements will directly impact student-athlete development including sponsorship of the Hofstra Athletics Mentoring Night and a Capital One financial education seminar for Hofstra student-athletes.
“As the Official Bank Partner of Hofstra Athletics, Capital One Bank is pleased to play a key role in supporting the future success and growth of Hofstra Athletics,” said Andrew Corrado, Sr. Vice President and Market Manager Capital One Bank Long Island Private Banking Group. “We’re also pleased to be associated with a university whose commitment to academic excellence is reflected in its growing number of nationally ranked programs and in-depth research opportunities.”
