In the fall of 2013, Heartland Bank cemented a ‘preferred banking partner’ relationship with the Columbus Crew SC. When then-president Mark McCullers announced the agreement, he said ‘This partnership is a great opportunity for the Crew to support a like-minded and locally based community asset.’ Like minded? Heartland Bank thrives on building strong local relationships. Locally based community asset? We’ve been in business since 1911 and with 13 locations in central Ohio, we’ve established a tradition of service to local communities.
Since that announcement, Heartland Bank has enjoyed a special relationship with the club. We’ve proudly celebrated ‘Heartland Bank Day’ at several Crew matches, where President and CEO Scott McComb invited employees and their families to pre-match tailgate gatherings and also celebrated several ‘Crew Days’ at Heartland Bank during last season’s march to the playoffs. Branch offices were decorated with black and gold balloons, a life-size Wil Trapp cutout welcomed clients visiting the offices and employees proudly sported their Crew SC gear.
During Crew SC matches, you’ll find Heartland employees cheering the team on from Suite #123. Sometimes, we’re even honored by visits from Crew Cat, brand ambassador Frankie Hejduk or even owner Anthony Precourt. Visitors will see both our scrolling ad on the field level LED board and the concourse sign on the west side of MAPFRE stadium.
If you’re going to the Crew SC match vs. NYCFC on August 13, watch for the Heartland Bank RV and the Crew’s Crew, our enthusiastic and engaging team of employees that will be on the Plaza interacting with fans - enjoying a game of cornhole and encouraging Instagram posts with our giant debit card and the hashtags #FeelGoodBanking and #CrewSC. Fans can even enter to win a ride in the Heartland Bank hot air balloon!
You can take your game to the major leagues, just like Heartland Bank did, by applying today for a Crew debit or credit card (either online at HeartlandBank.com or at any of our 13 branch offices).
