Evansville Arena’s Ford Deal

The newly built downtown arena in Evansville, Ind., has scored a name with the inking of a $4.2 million deal with the Tri-State Ford Dealers.

The 11,000-seat venue will be known as the Ford Center when it opens this fall. The agreement extends naming rights for a 10-year period and reportedly includes signage throughout the venue.

An announcement regarding the first concert at the venue is forthcoming.
