Specialised IT services company High Point Solutions has entered into a multi-year agreement with Quinnipiac University, acquiring the naming rights to the college's multi-purpose sports arena.
Formerly known as the TD Bank Sports Center, under terms of the five-year deal, worth US$1 million overall, the 3,400 capacity arena will be officially known as the High Point Solutions Arena.
"This is a significant corporate sponsorship from an outstanding, innovative company," said Donald Weinbach, vice president for development and alumni affairs at the Connecticut- based university. "We seek to associate with quality brands, and in the world of network and IT solutions, High Point is known for delivering quality products and superb service."
Tom Mendiburu, High Point Solutions co-founder, added, "We are proud to provide this level of support to Quinnipiac University. Helping a thriving university like Quinnipiac continue its unparalleled ascent, while linking our name to such a state-of-the-art ice hockey facility, is true a win-win for both of our organisations. We are excited about this corporate partnership and want to thank president John L. Lahey and the board of trustees for this opportunity."
In October 2009 High Point Solutions was named as a major partner of the Barclays Center, home of the NBA's New Jersey Nets, in a deal that was believed to be worth US$3.3 million over a four-year period.
