UIC Pavilion Could Soon Have New Name

The UIC Pavilion could soon have a new name.

The University of Illinois at Chicago facility is set to become Credit Union 1 Arena, pending approval by the university’s board of trustees.

The naming rights are part of a 15-year, $9.3 million agreement between the university and Credit Union 1, officials said.

It is expected to be reviewed by the board in January.

“We are grateful for the generosity of Credit Union 1 and look forward to providing more scholarship opportunities to our students through this partnership,” UIC Chancellor Michael Amiridis said in a statement. “Credit Union 1 has served the UIC community for many years and we are proud to have the Credit Union 1 Arena on our university campus as a visible symbol of our shared commitment.”
