Spurs Sports & Entertainment announced a new official partnership with Firstmark Credit Union, a not-for-profit, member-owned financial institution based in San Antonio.

Starting with the 2021-22 season and extending through 2023, Firstmark will present the Spurs School Employee Appreciation Program, where San Antonio school employees receive exclusive access to discounted seats at all Spurs home games.

“We are thrilled to partner with a high caliber organization such as our hometown San Antonio Spurs,” said [Nathanael] Tarwasokono [CEO, President]. “We feel our values and culture closely align, and through a shared commitment to community service, we are excited to make a positive impact together.”

Firstmark and SS&E share a strong focus on giving back to the community. The credit union — founded by educators for educators — champions those serving in San Antonio schools. Firstmark makes yearly financial contributions to Bexar County school districts.

“Teamwork is a powerful thing and can multiply our impact,” said [RC] Buford. “We’re excited to join forces with Firstmark to celebrate and support much-deserving teachers in our city.”

Firstmark will recognize 10 local teachers at various home games throughout the season. Each teacher will receive Spurs home game tickets and a Spurs and Firstmark prize pack. You can nominate your favorite teacher online at
