The 14th Annual Beach Soccer Championships, one of the largest beach soccer tournaments in the United States, announced today that Frontwave Credit Union will become the official Financial Services sponsor of the event.

The festival draws over 10,000 participants and 50,000 attendees to the beaches of Oceanside during Cinco de Mayo weekend and includes a Professional division attracting some of the best beach soccer players in the world such as Nick Perera and Chris Toth of the US National Beach Soccer Team.

Frontwave Credit Union has been a leading Southern California financial institution for over 60 years, first opening its doors in 1952 as Camp Pendleton Credit Union and recently rebranding from Pacific Marine Credit Union.

Among other activations, the partnership will include naming rights of the Frontwave BeSoCha Cantina, a recent addition to the Beach Soccer Championships that enables attendees of age to enjoy an alcoholic beverage, food and entertainment while taking in all the beach soccer action.

“We are thrilled to have Frontwave Credit Union join the Oceanside Beach Soccer family,” said Frank Zimmerman, operator of the Beach Soccer Championships. “Frontwave has been a part of the Oceanside community for as long as I can remember and we are excited to help them engage with our audience and find creative ways to build lasting memories here on the beach.”

“This partnership is a great fit for Frontwave and our members, who like the players in the Beach Soccer Championships, both work hard and play hard,” said Bill Birnie, President and CEO of Frontwave Credit Union. “We’re excited to be a part of this fun beach festival that shines a light on our fantastic community here in Oceanside.”
