Effective immediately, the MTS Centre has been renamed to Bell MTS Place. The MTS Iceplex has also been renamed to Bell MTS Iceplex.
The renaming of the home ice of the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose stems from the $3.9-billion acquisition of MTS by Bell in March. The arena hosts over 140 events annually and is consistently recognized as one of the premier sports and entertainment venues in North America.
“Bell has made a strong commitment to Manitoba with the launch of Bell MTS and its significant investment plan for the province,” says Mark Chipman, executive chairman True North Sports + Entertainment. “We’re excited to work with Bell to explore an enhanced partnership to the benefit of Manitobans and both companies in the months ahead.”
Signage at both arenas are expected to go up in the coming weeks All new signage should be in place by September 1.
