Centrum Arena Renamed America First Credit Union Events Center

SUU‘s Centrum Arena will now be called the America First Credit Union Events Center!

I have a feeling the locals will still call it the Centrum. Catchy and much easier to say. America First isn’t even a local company.

America First will pay $1.5 million for ten years for the naming rights.

The SUU Centrum hosts SUU basketball, gymnastics and volleyball, concerts, graduations, high school basketball tournaments and Utah Summer Games events.
