U.S. Bank Makes a Splash with SeaWorld San Diego Partnership

U.S. Bank has formed a new partnership with SeaWorld San Diego that will result in expanded ATM services, joint promotional campaigns and sponsorship of the park's shark attraction. The relationship is indicative of U.S. Bank's commitment to San Diego and to reaching out into the community through sponsorship and corporate support.

U.S. Bank is now the exclusive ATM provider at SeaWorld San Diego and will operate six U.S. Bank ATMs there. U.S. Bank already had two ATMs at the park. It will convert three ATMs that were operated by another bank and will add an ATM for even greater convenience. ATM locations are displayed on the park map provided to guests upon their arrival.

U.S. Bank also signed a sponsorship agreement which includes joint promotional campaigns and sponsorship of the Shark Encounter, a 280,000-gallon attraction that gives visitors an up-close view of hundreds of sharks, rays and tropical fish as they walk through a 57-foot acrylic tube running the length of the sharks' habitat.

"We have a long history of strong support for organizations and traditions in the communities where we operate, which is why we are so proud to support this San Diego institution," said Robert Armstrong, president of U.S. Bank in San Diego. "SeaWorld is a great complement to the San Diego organizations and programs that we support including the San Diego Padres, SDSU and the Support Our Schools program at the Buick Invitational."

SeaWorld is an Anheuser-Busch Adventure Park. This is the sixth exclusive ATM agreement that U.S. Bank has with Anheuser-Busch parks. The others include SeaWorld Orlando, SeaWorld Texas in San Antonio, Busch Gardens in Tampa, Grant's Farm in St. Louis and Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pa.

There are 36 U.S. Bank offices in San Diego County, nine of which opened in 2004 including offices at The Shops at Las Americas in San Ysidro and on the campus of San Diego State University.
