SD Arena Name Change

The 14,000-capacity San Diego Sports Arena is no more, at least in name.

The complex, built in 1966, will be named Valley View Casino Center Nov. 1. Terms of the multiyear agreement were not released.

Valley View Casino & Hotel, located north of San Diego in Valley Center, Calif., has 2,000 slot machines and its new boutique hotel opens Nov. 19.

The arena, managed by AEG Facilities, has seen several recent upgrades including a VIP hospitality space, a new sports club, new lower-level seats, LCD televisions and a renovated concourse.
