Saint Louis, MO – With the St. Louis Cardinals home opener just a few days away, Together Credit Union is thrilled to announce its new strategic partnership Ballpark Village and the title sponsorship of its newly completed outdoor plaza.
“At Together Credit Union, finding opportunities to build connections in our community by bringing people together is a key part of our culture. The Together Credit Union Plaza at Ballpark Village is the perfect place for bringing this vision to life,” said Paula Anderson, VP – Corporate Strategy & Brand from Together Credit Union. “While we currently aren’t gathering in ways we once did, we are confident Together Credit Union Plaza will soon become the premier gathering point downtown for sporting and entertainment events and we are proud to be a partner in this effort.”
Ballpark Village is a mixed-use retail, entertainment, office and residential district in downtown St. Louis. Lauded by the City as its most important development in a decade, Ballpark Village spans seven city blocks directly adjacent to and integrated with the Cardinals’ Busch Stadium.

It was important for us to complete this critical fan-experience component of our phase 2 expansion in time for the start of the Cardinals’ season,” said Mike LaMartina, Chief Revenue Officer for Ballpark Village. “This new centerpiece of Ballpark Village will be an important gathering place for the community for events and activities throughout the year. We couldn’t ask for a better community partner than Together Credit Union to bring our new space to life.”
