(Red Deer, Alberta) – The City of Red Deer is pleased to announce that Servus Credit Union is the name sponsor for the new Downtown Arena, with the facility’s name now the Servus Arena.
“Today is an exciting milestone in the arena’s history as we recognize Servus Credit Union as a community partner through the adoption of a new name for the facility – the Servus Arena,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “Servus Credit Union’s commitment to sport, community, and health through sponsorship with The City of Red Deer will assist in improving civic facilities and services across Red Deer and we thank Servus Credit Union for their partnership.”
"Servus Credit Union is pleased to partner with the City of Red Deer to bring affordable access to first class recreational facilities for children, families and seniors," stated Garth Warner, president and CEO of Servus. "As a credit union owned by Albertans and operated in Alberta, we believe that investing in healthy, happy and physically fit communities goes hand-in-hand with the financial fitness we aim to build with our members."
Sponsorship funds provide The City with an alternative source of non-tax revenue to assist in improving civic facilities and services. The sponsorship agreement with Servus Credit Union is worth $1 million over 15 years.
The Servus Arena is under construction and is expected to open in Fall 2018. For more information about the project, visit: www.reddeer.ca/servusarena.
