MESA, AZ – The newly built sports complex in southeast Mesa, Arizona finally has a name: Bell Bank Park.
The facility operations team announced that a naming rights deal was made with Bell Bank Park yesterday for a 10-year duration. Bell Bank is based in the Midwest and is the largest regional family-owned bank in the area. The bank has branches in nearby Peoria, Chandler, and Phoenix, so operators of the facility mention that since the bank is rapidly growing, it will continue to do so in Arizona.
The $280 million complex sits on over 320 acres and is the first of its kind in the United States and Canada.
The facility, scheduled to open in January 2022, is “designed to host youth and amateur sports teams and individual and team training, family fun via events, concerts, youth sports tournaments, and fitness opportunities.”
The park broke ground in fall 2020 and has already been scheduling events and booking reservations for 2022. The complex is also looking forward to creating over 1,500 jobs and bringing in over five million visitors in its starting years.
Peter Luukko of the Oak View Group—who will help operate the facility—says that Bell Bank Park is “the ultimate place to train, play, and enjoy live events.”
Legacy Sports USA’s Chad Miller also mentions that “Bell Bank Park will be a special place to compete and train, and gather with family and friends to enjoy sports and live entertainment.”
“This long-term agreement reinforces Bell Bank’s commitment to the Phoenix metro area,” says president and CEO of Bell Bank, Michael Solberg.
“The opening of Bell Bank Park in 2022 will be an exciting moment for Mesa and the entire metro area,” adds on Kyle Kennedy, the head of Bell Bank’s Arizona operations. “It is a venue where people from all over will enjoy experiences that create lifetime memories.”
