The home of Phoenix Rising FC has a new name, as the stadium is now known as Casino Arizona Field. The new name is the result of a multi-year agreement between Phoenix Rising and Casino Arizona, an enterprise owned and operated by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC), for naming rights of Phoenix Rising Sports Complex.
“It is a great honor for Phoenix Rising to partner with Casino Arizona, an iconic entertainment destination in the Valley,” said Berke Bakay, Governor of Phoenix Rising FC. “We have had a wonderful relationship with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, and its member families of the Solanna Group who own the land where our stadium resides, since our launch in 2016. Our stadium is located in close proximity to Casino Arizona, also making this agreement a natural fit.”
Beyond the naming rights for the stadium and pitch, the partnership between Casino Arizona and Phoenix Rising FC includes logo branded signage throughout Phoenix Rising Sports Complex. Inside the stadium, Casino Arizona and its sister property, Talking Stick Resort will have dual logos on barricades around the pitch, while banners in the stadium, the scoreboard and the team’s practice field will now feature the new name of the field. Another new addition to the stadium this season will be a permanent monument sign that will also brandish the Casino Arizona Field name and will be installed at a later date.
“Casino Arizona has long maintained a reputation for supporting major sports in the Valley, and Phoenix Rising is among the most exciting teams to watch,” said Ramon Martinez, director of public relations for Casino Arizona. “We are proud to be associated with these 2018 Western Conference Champions and to be represented in their stadium.”
