NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ Webster Bank has struck a deal to become the official bank of Yale University athletics.
University spokesman Tom Conroy said Monday that it is the largest sponsorship agreement for Yale athletics and the first with a bank.
The deal provides for advertising and promotional opportunities at the Ivy League university’s athletic events and venues. Financial terms of the three-year agreement were not disclosed.
Waterbury-based Webster Bank also has a major sponsorship deal with the University of Connecticut that began in 2012.
Yale has 35 varsity sports and last year its men’s hockey team won the NCAA championship.
