BGSU Athletics, The Union Bank Company to continue long-time partnership

Bowling Green, Ohio – The Union Bank Company announced today it has renewed its commitment for the sixth consecutive year with Bowling Green Athletics, as announced by the university’s exclusive athletics multimedia rights holder, Learfield Sports’ Falcon Sports Properties.

Concurrent with its partner benefits, the Union Bank Company will again fully back the “Kid Captain of the Game” initiative. Launched three years ago, the program is designed for the youngest Falcon football fans, with one winner chosen for each home game. He or she will receive a team jersey, four tickets to a home football game, on-field, pre-game access to watch the players warm-up, as well as the opportunity to stand alongside players for the coin toss. Each Kid Captain also will be recognized on the field before kick off. Parents are encouraged to register their children 12 years or younger, at any Union Bank Company location in Northwest Ohio.

“We have enjoyed an outstanding relationship with BGSU Athletics over the years and look forward to it continuing,” said the Union Bank Company President & CEO, Brian D. Young. “We believe in local sponsorships and know they make a difference. We are proud to be part of this community and anticipate hosting another fun and exciting year for our selected ‘Kid Captains’.
