First National Bank (FNB) has successfully scored a jersey partnership with the NHL’s  Pittsburgh Penguins for at least until the end of the 2026-27 season. 

The deal will see FNB’s logo placed on the upper right chest area of the team’s white away jerseys, and will be first revealed during the Penguins’ game with the Capitals in Washington on 13 October. 

Fans will also be able to watch the new jerseys in play during all pre-season, regular season and playoff road games.

Vincent Delie Jr, Chairman, President and CEO of F.N.B. Corporation and First National Bank, commented: “The Penguins are a world-class organisation, with a commitment to excellence and integrity that we share at FNB.

“As the official away game jersey sponsor and official Retail Bank and Digital Banking Partner of the Pittsburgh Penguins, we look forward to showing our support for the Penguins and all they represent when they take the ice in markets across North America.”

The partnership also brings added exposure, as the FNB logo will similarly appear virtually on the Penguins’ away game jersey in the EA SPORTS NHL 24 video game.

FNB will be the first-ever partner to have its logo featured on Pittsburgh’s away jerseys, making them the first team to secure two different partner patches for each the home and away jersey since the NHL introduced its jersey advertising program prior to the start of the 2022-23 season.

The partnership will also bring the FNB logo to the Penguins’ away jerseys in the EA SPORTS NHL 24 video game.

The Pittsburgh Penguins are the first team to have implemented two different partner patches for their home and away jerseys since the NHL brought its jersey advertising program into play. 

Penguins President of Business Operations Kevin Acklin added: “As our partnership with FNB continues to grow from our team banking partners to building their new headquarters on our Lower Hill redevelopment, it was only fitting that they come with us on the road as well.

“We are proud to showcase the FNB logo on our official team jerseys as a testament to how much we value our relationship with Vince and the entire FNB team, both on and off the ice, across the Pittsburgh region and beyond.”
