The Golden Knights’ practice facility will be named City National Arena.
This announcement comes after Vegas Golden Knights’ Chairman and CEO, Bill Foley, revealed Monday morning that the team has signed a multi-year partnership with City National Bank.
The partnership includes: in-arena branding and signage at the practice facility, a patch on the Golden Knights practice jerseys, and branding in T-Mobile Arena for City National Bank.
The practice facility will be open later in the summer and is located 15 miles west of the strip.
“We are thrilled to partner with City National Bank on this endeavor, as City National shares in our vision of growing the sport of hockey in Southern Nevada and has a strong commitment to the community.” Bill Foley said in a statement. “City National Arena will provide best-in-class amenities and programs for all skill levels and experience, regardless of age or gender. We look forward to officially opening our doors later this summer.”
“City National is proud to become the official bank of the Vegas Golden Knights and to put our name on the team’s outstanding new City National Arena across the street from our Nevada banking headquarters,” said Russell Goldsmith, the bank’s chairman and CEO.
“Since City National has been providing outstanding business and private banking and investment management here in Las Vegas for over a decade, we are very enthusiastic about Bill Foley and the Golden Knights ushering in a new era of major league sports for Nevada.”
