Inside the new Bobby Valentine Sports Academy.

First County Bank in Stamford and the Bobby Valentine Sports Academy are teaming up with the bank becoming the official field sponsor of the academy’s new 40,000-square-foot indoor sports facility. 

The academy has been in Stamford for more than 12 years and recently moved into its new facility at 4 Largo Drive. The new building boasts 40-foot ceilings, a 15,000-square-foot turf field, two multisurface areas and six batting cages. 

On any given day, you can observe baseball, softball, lacrosse, soccer and football training and practice.

“First County Bank’s relationship with Bobby Valentine and BVSA is exciting to the bank and exemplifies its mission to support local communities in Fairfield County,” said Rey Giallongo Jr., chairman and CEO of First County Bank. “The functionality of the facility and its multisport activities provide opportunities for the community to train, network and create lasting relationships, that support our strategic community-minded mission.”

“We believe when you find a partner that treats others the same way you do, it makes for a great like-minded relationship,” said Valentine who is a Stamford native and has been a First County Bank customer for most of his life.
