Texas Regional Bank Launches UTRGV Vaqueros Debit Card

October 24, 2023

RIO GRANDE VALLEY – The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) Department of Intercollegiate Athletics and Texas Regional Bank announced on Tuesday an expanded partnership that includes the launch of the UTRGV Vaqueros Debit Card.

The new UTRGV-branded debit card is now available to all Texas Regional Bank customers with a checking account. Opening a new account can be done quickly and easily at https://trb.bank or at a local branch. Current account holders can request a UTRGV Vaqueros debit card by visiting their local branch and bringing an approved form of identification.

UTRGV Athletics and Texas Regional Bank will celebrate the launch of the UTRGV Vaqueros debit card at UTRGV Madness on Friday (10/27) at the UTRGV Fieldhouse. With thousands in students, staff, and fans in attendance, the debit card will be unveiled at center court. One lucky fan will be chosen to participate in Texas Regional Bank’s Texas Tornado, a machine that blows money around while the contestant attempts to grab as much cash as possible.

Any fans purchasing tickets for a Vaqueros home game of any sport at the box office using a UTRGV Vaqueros debit card will receive a $1 discount.

“Texas Regional Bank is committed to community growth and education,” said Jason Leal, Chief Experience Officer (CXO) at Texas Regional Bank and a UTRGV alum. “Our partnership with UTRGV shows our ongoing dedication to supporting local institutions that make a difference. This exclusive UTRGV-branded debit card is more than a financial product; it’s a testament to the synergies between education and community development.”

The new debit card is part of a larger partnership, as Texas Regional Bank staff provides financial education services to UTRGV students, faculty, staff, and parents.

“Texas Regional Bank is committed to UTRGV,” said Jamie Brown-Rosas, Director of Business Development for Texas Regional Bank. “We will continue to help the next generation of leaders in the Rio Grande Valley by providing the support and resources needed to succeed. Our partnership itself is not new, but launching the Vaqueros debit card is an exciting initiative our community can rally behind.”

Texas Regional Bank employs many UTRGV students and graduates in various roles from intern to CXO throughout a 32-branch network that includes two locations in Brownsville, two in Edinburg, two in Harlingen, three in McAllen, one in Mission, one in San Benito, and one in Weslaco. With assets of approximately $2.6 billion, Texas Regional Bank is a full-service financial institution throughout the Valley, Houston, the DFW Metroplex, and the Texas Hill Country.

“Our relationship with Texas Regional Bank goes back a long way. We are most grateful for their loyal support, and we are proud to find new and exciting ways to partner together,” UTRGV Vice President and Director of Athletics Chasse Conque said. “Having a UTRGV Vaqueros debit card sends a strong message that you care deeply about the Valley’s Division I team and our student-athletes who represent the Rio Grande Valley every day.”
