FredNats ballpark to be named Virginia Credit Union Stadium
The Fredericksburg Nationals have secured naming rights with Virginia Credit Union to name the FredNats ballpark, the two entities announced Saturday.
The ballpark is now officially named Virginia Credit Union Stadium. Fans can expect to see Virginia Credit Union signage in the ballpark on Opening Day (6:05 p.m. April 12 vs. the Carolina Mudcats) and beyond.
Richmond-based Virginia Credit Union owns and operates 20 branch offices including local ones at 2150 Gordon W. Shelton Boulevard and 4531 Spotsylvania Parkway.
“We are very pleased to be making an important investment in the Fredericksburg region and on behalf of our members here,” said Chris Shockley, Virginia Credit Union’s president and CEO. “We see our partnership with the Fredericksburg Nationals at Virginia Credit Union Stadium as a vital way to reach prospective members, offer exciting benefits to existing members, and make a long-term commitment to this community.”
“Partnering with an amazing organization like Virginia Credit Union has felt extremely fitting from the beginning,” said Fredericksburg Nationals Chairman Art Silber. “Their 10-year commitment to community and our region lines up with the core values that the FredNats exhibit throughout Fredericksburg. This relationship is poised to elevate the value that the FredNats are able to provide our fans and is the next natural step in integrating both brands into our community.”
The FredNats and Virginia Credit Union also plan to launch a collaborative initiative “Strike-Out-Hunger” for the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank. For every strikeout thrown during the 2022 season, Virginia Credit Union and the FredNats will make a financial contribution to the Food Bank.
Congrats to the FredNats and Virginia Credit Union on this exciting news. We’re looking forward to Opening Day!
