FNB to extend hours for World Cup

By Staff Writer
First National Bank (FNB) will extend its banking hours at 17 key-site branches (list below) to welcome visitors and offer its customers greater financial services convenience during the 2010 FIFA World CupTM.

The extended banking hours will be offered from today, 1 June 2010 to 31 July 2010. During weekdays the branches will close at 19h00 and on Saturdays the branches will close at 15h30.

"FNB is the first bank in South Africa to consistently offer evening branch-banking. Our focus during the extended hours will be entirely on meeting the needs of foreign visitors, Personal Banking customers and Commercial Banking customers," says Michael Jordaan, CEO of FNB.

"The extra banking hours are FNB's contribution at a time when everything around us will be unusual and exciting. FNB has also enabled a translating centre to assist non-English speaking visitors who enter an FNB branch," adds Jordaan.

"We will be offering commercial services during the extended hours to ensure that the extra hours really do help all South Africans and foreign visitors with their banking requirements. We have set up a call centre (0860 11 22 44) where customers can determine the extended-hour sites and the services to be offered," concludes Jordaan.

The bank has numerous projects to offer additional financial services during the next two months. The bank has built a full-service temporary branch at NASREC adjacent to FNB Stadium - know as Soccer City for the duration of the World Cup. The bank will also have ATMs at specific stadia and official Fan Parks.

FNB's Automated Deposit Taking (ADT) machines offer 24-hour banking including cash and cheque deposits.

FNB is a National Supporter of the 2010 FIFA World CupTM
