BEL AIR, Md. (2/29/12)--The largest indoor venue in northeastern Maryland will be named the APG Federal Credit Union Arena at Harford Community College.
The college and APGFCU jointly announced that naming rights were awarded in exchange for APGFCU's annual contribution of about $50,000 for the next 15 years. The contribution will be used for scholarships for college students as well as arena operations and programming.
Now under construction, the arena will seat 3,200 and will be the home for men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball. It also will host community and regional events, commencements, concerts, conferences and trade shows.
APGFCU's name and logo will appear on interior and exterior signage as well as the arena's floor, pillars and scoreboard. The credit union will also be recognized on arena advertising, posters, basketball and volleyball schedules, event programs and playbills.
The arena project is part of an expansion to the college's Susquehanna Center, which houses college athletics. A grand opening event will be scheduled during the 2012-13 academic year.
APGFCU's long-time partnership with Harford Community College previously included providing scholarships and supporting the Small Business Development Center. The credit union has $874 million in assets.
