New City National Arena will be ‘for all Las Vegans to enjoy’
The Vegas Golden Knights’ practice facility finally has a name – City National Arena.
The rink, which is situated in the Summerlin community west of the Strip, is a win-win for all involved. The terms of the arrangement between Golden Knights and City National Bank include center ice logos on both NHL-sized ice sheets, a patch on the Golden Knights practice jerseys and additional signage at the facility.
City National Bank will also receive exposure and branding in T-Mobile Arena, the home of the Golden Knights.
“Our practice facility was designed to be the official home of the Vegas Golden Knights, but also a state-of-the-art community ice center for all Las Vegans to enjoy,” said Golden Knights owner, chairman and CEO Bill Foley. “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. City National Arena will provide best-in-class amenities and programs for all skill levels and experience, regardless of age or gender.”
City National Bank’s chairman and CEO Russell Goldsmith highlighted the partnership in his own words.
“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 Goldsmith. “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. The Knights will add to the attraction of Las Vegas as a world class tourist destination, create many jobs and help grow the economy of Southern Nevada in many ways.
“We are also very pleased that the beautiful new City National Arena will be a great resource for the whole community to enjoy.”
