- What are Naming Rights?
Naming Rights are a financial transaction whereby a corporation or other entity purchases the right to name a facility or to name an asset within a facility, typically for a defined period of time. Through a contractual agreement, terms like rights fees, signage, sponsorship rights, renewal terms and other negotiations are outlined.
Naming Rights do not impact the day-to-day operation of the City facility.
Naming Rights are governed by the City of Brampton Sponsorship & Naming Rights Policy.
- Why is the City of Brampton pursuing Naming Rights?
The City of Brampton is focused on creating a prosperous, safe, engaging community for our residents. With increased fiscal pressures in our growing city we know we can’t do it alone. We need to partner for success.
Naming Rights agreements provide the City with alternative funding sources to minimize the impact on the taxpayer, while providing the highest quality of life for those who live here. The revenue from Naming Rights will help to offset some of the increased costs associated with providing greater service to residents, instead of passing on the cost to taxpayers.
- What do the Naming Rights to the Brampton Soccer Centre entail?
Save Max Real Estate Inc. has purchased the rights to rename the exterior facility. The name “Brampton Soccer Centre” will change to “Save Max Sports Centre”. All existing signage will be replaced to “Save Max Sports Centre” and two new signs will be installed on the exterior of the building. All references to Brampton Soccer Centre will be phased out starting in 2021.
The City retains the right to sell secondary naming rights at the facility such as the indoor fields and courts as well as the new exterior amenities.
- What does the City of Brampton Sponsorship & Naming Rights program entail?
In March 2019, Brampton City Council approved a short list of City facilities for the sale of Naming Rights as part of adopting a citywide sponsorship strategy and an updated Sponsorship and Naming Rights Policy. The citywide Sponsorship and Naming Rights program offers customized opportunities for businesses to connect with the community, creating enhanced experiences for residents.
