Score big with the new debit card from the official credit union of Utah Athletics

Salt Lake City – Aug. 22, 2023 – University of Utah Athletics fans have a new way to support their favorite team with the help of America First Credit Union. As the official credit union of the University of Utah Athletics, America First announced the official Utah Athletics debit card. The card features the Utah logo on a sleek white background with a visible crimson core, allowing cardholders to show off their Utah pride with every purchase.

“We’re excited to give our members another way to show their Ute pride wherever they go with the exclusive University of Utah Athletics debit card,” said Tammy Gallegos, Chief Marketing and Strategic Engagement Officer at America First. “We love being part of this amazing community of fans and appreciate our partners at the University of Utah Athletics for helping us provide a fun way to connect with our members, fans and community.”

The debit card, available for all America First Credit Union members, allows cardholders access to Rice-Eccles Stadium 30 minutes before doors open to the public — two hours before kickoff time — to catch an early glimpse of pregame warmups.
