For 100 years, UMB has been more than a bank. To the communities where we live and do business, we’re a valued community partner. It’s who we’ve been for the first 100 years, and it’s who we’ll be in the future. And it’s one reason why we were excited to team up with St. Louis’s premier sporting organization, the St. Louis Cardinals, to create the UMB Champions Club.
Unveiled in 2012, the UMB Champions Club represents a long-term partnership that unites two 100-year-old brands that are deeply rooted in the community.
Busch Stadium, also referred to informally as "New Busch Stadium" or "Busch Stadium III", is a baseball park located in St. Louis, Missouri, and the home of the St. Louis Cardinals, the city's Major League Baseball (MLB) franchise. The stadium has a seating capacity of 43,975, and contains 3,706 club seats and 61 luxury suites. It replaced Busch Memorial Stadium (aka Busch Stadium II) and occupies a portion of that stadium's former footprint. A commercial area, dubbed Ballpark Village, was built adjacent to the stadium over the remainder of the former stadium's footprint.The stadium opened on April 4, 2006 with an exhibition between the minor league Memphis Redbirds and Springfield Cardinals, both affiliates of the St. Louis Cardinals, which Springfield won 5-3 with right-hander Mike Parisi recording the first win. The first official major league game occurred on April 10, 2006 as the Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 6 - 4 behind an Albert Pujols home run and winning pitcher Mark Mulder.The highest attendance for a sports event was on May 23, 2013, when 48,263 people watched Chelsea Football Club and Manchester City Football Club play a friendly match.
