Phoenix Suns Home Renamed After New Naming Rights Deal

December 3, 2014

The US Airways Center, cialis home to National Basketball Association franchise the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury and Arizona Rattlers, as well as the Valley’s premier concert venue, will be renamed the Talking Stick Resort Arena, after a new naming rights agreement was struck.

The agreement is a multi-year deal that was announced by the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury and Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community.

The name change will be visible throughout the facility, with Talking Stick Resort Arena being prominent on the exterior of the building; on the underbelly of the center hung scoreboard; on the arena’s rooftop; and featured on the Suns and Mercury basketball courts.

The Casino Arizona Pavilion – the arena’s main lobby area – will retain its name.

“We could not be more excited about our expanded relationship with Talking Stick Resort,” said Phoenix Suns President Jason Rowley.

“Talking Stick Resort and Casino Arizona has been a trusted and valued partner of the Phoenix Suns for many years.  This naming rights agreement brings our partnership to a new level and will have an astral impact on the visibility of their support for the Phoenix Suns, Phoenix Mercury and the entire community.”

American Airlines, the current naming rights partner and owner of US Airways, has fulfilled all of its obligations and elected not to extend its naming rights agreement beyond the 2014-15 season.

The facility’s naming transition to Talking Stick Resort Arena, from US Airways Center, is expected to be completed before the beginning of the 2015-16 Phoenix Suns season.
