Williamsburg, Ky. – Forcht Bank has the distinction of being the first sponsor of the Mid-South Athletic Conference (MSC) Game of the Week with a $10,000 gift to the Conference. While the Bank is sponsoring the Conference as a whole, the game chosen as the Forcht Bank Mid-South Conference Game of the Week is University of the Cumberlands and Campbellsville University on November 2nd in Campbellsville, Ky.
In appreciation of the gift, the MSC will recognize Forcht Bank as the Game of the Week sponsor through a plaque presentation and extended media coverage before, during and after the game.
Going forward, each MSC school will recognize a Mid-South Conference Game of the Week sponsor during at least one of its season’s games. All funds for the sponsorship go directly to the MSC to support the conference in its mission to provide its student-athletes the best conference in the NAIA.
