A New Name for the ACC: MLSE Agrees to New Rights Deal with Scotiabank


Recommended Posts

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment has agreed to a landmark 20-year sponsorship agreement with Scotiabank to rename the Air Canada Centre, TSN has learned.

 

The agreement is worth about $800 million (Canadian), according to three sources familiar with the matter. Under MLSE?s previous agreement with Air Canada, struck in 1999, the airline paid about $4 million per year.

 

The agreement with Scotiabank, which will see the downtown Toronto arena renamed the Scotiabank Arena next July 1, is believed to be the highest-priced annual building and team sponsorship in North American sports history.

I know arenas change title sponsors all the time, but this one is gonna be weird. Especially given the recent association with Scotiabank and the Senators.
