Amerant Bank Named the Hometown Bank of the Miami Marlins 

The multi-year partnership includes an extensive brand presence in the ballpark and Amerant Bank will make a donation for every Marlins home game save this season.

Amerant Bank continues expanding its connections with South Florida sports teams by recently partnering with the Miami Marlins to become the team’s “Hometown Bank.” Amerant Bank has served the South Florida community for over four decades and is headquartered in Coral Gables. Terms of the partnership have not been disclosed.

“We are excited to enter into a multi-year partnership with the Miami Marlins,” Jerry Plush says, Chairman and CEO of Amerant Bank. “Amerant has rapidly earned a reputation of aligning with well-known and respected organizations with strong roots in our local community. We see this partnership with the Marlins as another great opportunity to align Amerant alongside a franchise that embodies the history and culture of South Florida.”

As part of the partnership agreement, Amerant secured the Hometown Bank designation and a strong brand presence within the stadium, particularly on the Ivy Wall in the left-center field. The partnership will also benefit the Miami Marlins Foundation. The “Marlins Saves presented by Amerant” program will have Amerant Bank donating a certain amount for every save the Marlins record at loanDepot park during the 2024 season. The proceeds from this initiative will be utilized to support the Miami Marlins Foundation programming, which aims to create opportunities for the youth to stay active, achieve academic success and develop their leadership skills, ultimately positively impacting South Florida.

“With a shared commitment on making an impact across the South Florida community, the Marlins-Amerant partnership showcases the power of teamwork,” David Oxfeld says, Marlins Chief Commercial Officer. “Amerant is an indelible and innovative hometown organization that carries a widely respected reputation. We are excited to continue making a difference in our community, with Amerant by our side.”

Amerant Bank recently announced an extensive program of multi-year sports partnerships across South Florida, in addition to its banking center expansion plans. These partnerships include the Miami Marlins, Miami Heat, Florida Panthers, and the University of Miami Hurricanes.
