NOVEMBER 08, 2019

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (Nov. 08 2019) – FirstBank has launched a new partnership with the University of Tennessee Chattanooga to become the official bank sponsor of UTC’s athletic programs.

As part of the partnership, FirstBank is unveiling its new FirstBank Power C Debit Card on Saturday, Nov. 9, to coincide with the Mocs first basketball doubleheader of the season.  The women host Hampton at 2:00 p.m., followed by the men’s game against Tennessee State at 4:30 p.m. at McKenzie Arena. The FirstBank Power C Debit Card will be available to any FirstBank account holder, including but not limited to UTC students, faculty, staff and alumni.

“FirstBank is a great partner for UTC, and we look forward to having them on our team of supporters,” said Zach Huston, general manager of Mocs Sports Properties, the multimedia rights holder for Chattanooga Athletics. “FirstBank is known for being deeply involved in the communities it serves, and it is great having a Tennessee-based financial services provider as the official bank of our athletic programs.”

“We are extremely happy to be partnering with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga,” said FirstBank Chattanooga Market President Jim McKenzie. “As a longtime Chattanooga resident, I know how important UTC is to the community, and I know what a great school it is. We are proud to be the official bank of the Mocs!”
