RICHMOND, Va. – The Richmond Kickers announced Wednesday that Virginia Credit Union has been named Presenting Sponsor of Premier League in RVA featuring Swansea City of the world famous English Premier League on Wednesday, July 19. The match kicks off at 7:30 p.m. ET at City Stadium.

“The Richmond Kickers’ exhibition match with an English Premier League team is one of the highlights of the year for RVA,” said Todd Feldman, Chief Marketing Officer for VACU. “We always look for opportunities to connect the community where people live, work and play. Virginia Credit Union is excited to partner with the Kickers for the match between our hometown team and the Swans of Swansea City.”
As the Presenting Sponsor, Virginia Credit Union will be featured prominently on all pre-game media and will benefit from in-stadium branding and interactive activation during the historic event.
“We are thrilled to partner with Virginia Credit Union to bring the biggest sporting event of the year to RVA,” said Santiago Lucio, Richmond Kickers Director of Business Development.  “We knew that this partnership was a perfect fit right from the start of our conversations and we believe that it will help enhance the authentic Premier League experience and electric atmosphere at City Stadium.”
The prestigious match in Richmond is part of a 10-day, three-game East Coast tour and marks the fourth consecutive time a team from England’s top flight will appear in Virginia.  Swansea has traveled to America four times for preseason, most recently having visited Richmond, Va., in 2016 when the Kickers claimed a historic 2-0 victory in front of 7,128 fans.
