New OCCU Family Zone to Include Interactive, Educational Additions for Fans
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State University Athletics and its multimedia rightsholder, Learfield’s Beaver Sports Properties, have announced Oregon Community Credit Union (OCCU) will serve as the naming rights sponsor of the OCCU Family Zone in Reser Stadium.
OCCU will champion new educational and interactive elements coming to the OCCU Family Zone starting this season. On football game days, families will have an elevated experience through various additions including an OCCU Coin Scavenger Hunt for kids to redeem prizes; giveaways for the first 200 fans each home game; and the installation of a “dream station” providing fans the opportunity to be awarded a jumpstart via OCCU to reaching their goals.
Additionally, OCCU will bring a nursing station into the stadium concourse, and they will donate four football season tickets annually to an area nonprofit organization in collaboration with the OCCU Foundation.
“We are proud to be adding an interactive and educational activation in the OCCU Family Zone. Creating a family-friendly atmosphere in Reser Stadium continues to be a point of emphasis for us, and OCCU is the ideal partner to continue forward on this important initiative,” said Oregon State’s Senior Associate Athletic Director Sara Elcano. “This partnership allows us to enhance the family zone by adding giveaways each game, a nursing station pod and interactive activities that educate the youngest Beaver fans on the topic of financial literacy.”
“We are thrilled to partner with OSU to bring new and exciting interactive experiences to Reser Stadium through the OCCU Family Zone,” said OCCU President & CEO Ron Neumann. “As we join the Corvallis community, we believe that our partnership can help to enhance the game day experience and foster a deeper connection with financial wellness within Beaver Nation.”
Beaver Sports Properties is Learfield’s local team dedicated to Oregon State overseeing the OCCU relationship. The team works alongside the entire athletics administration in management of the overall multimedia rights relationship and corporate partner platform.
