North Island Credit Union Secures Naming Rights for San Diego Amphitheatre

SAN DIEGO, Nov. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — North Island Credit Union is the new name-in-title sponsor of San Diego’s premier amphitheatre, signing a multi-year agreement with Live Nation. Hosting 30+ concerts per year and welcoming more than 300,000 live music fans annually, the venue will now be known as North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre, located in Chula Vista, CA.

This marketing alliance further underscores a shared commitment by the two organizations to provide an extraordinary experience for credit union members and music fans in the San Diego area. Both organizations view the sponsorship as much more than a name change and are working together to continue to enhance the fan experience from a 360° perspective. Additionally, the North Island Credit Union team will be on-site throughout the concert season to engage with fans, provide giveaways and prizes, and to offer information on credit union benefits and services.

“As we were exploring new avenues to support our community, bring more benefits to our members, and extend our brand awareness, the incredible opportunity to partner with Live Nation at this local venue proved to be a natural fit for both of our brands.  North Island Credit Union’s vision for our member experience aligned seamlessly with Live Nation’s commitment to the fan experience,” said California Credit Union President/CEO Steve O’Connell. “Together, we will combine our resources to bring a truly unique Southern California concert experience to North Island Credit Union members and all fans.  We think fans will be excited about all that North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre will have to offer when the new season kicks off.”

The benefits of this partnership will be brought directly to North Island Credit Union members with a dedicated member entrance, discounted ticket pricing, and promotions for tickets and exclusive fan experiences throughout the year.

“North Island Credit Union is dedicated to enriching relationships within their community, so they were a natural fit as a like-minded, long-term partner for this classic amphitheater,” said Andy Peikon, senior vice president of Live Nation venue sales. “Together, through the power of live music, we will integrate their brand in authentic ways throughout the venue so they can establish even more meaningful connections with members who have an affinity for live music.”
