This marks the fourth name for the arena since opening in 1990.

The building was most recently the Times Union Center. It was also the Pepsi Arena and was originally the Knickerbocker Arena.

Sporting events, concerts and trade shows will continue. However, the ultimate goal is to improve the experience and invest in the surrounding community.
