Another Mohegan Sun

The Wachovia Arena in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. – which announced earlier this year its need of a new naming sponsor – has reached a naming rights deal with the Mohegan Sun casino.

The Luzerne County Convention Center Authority reportedly has approved the contract, effectively changing the name of the venue to Mohegan Sun Arena for the next 10 years.

Wachovia Bank’s contract expires Dec. 31. A spokesman for the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia recently told Pollstar no name changes were in sight for that venue.
