Mayo Clinic Buys Naming Rights to Regional Civic Center
Effective on January 1, 2020, the Mankato Civic Center has a new name. It will now be called the Mayo Clinic Health System Event Center, as part of a 5-year agreement between Mayo Health Systems and the City of Mankato.
According to arenadigest.com;
The civic center is used for Division I hockey, concerts, expos, conventions and corporate events. In addition to facility-naming rights, the agreement creates new opportunities for health and wellness events, healthy menu options within the arena, and other community health tools, such as implementing an indoor walking program–the Mayo Clinic Mile.
So, not only will you get to see the same events they are known for, they are adding additional events and programs that focus on health and wellness.
The Mayo Clinic Health System was not the only group in consideration for the partnership and naming rights. After many months of negotiations and meetings, the deal was finalized with Mayo Clinic Health System, with the annual sponsorship amount being $120,000.
