ORIGINAL STORY (from 7/18/17) – We already knew the Vegas Golden Knights would be playing their home games at T-Mobile Arena, we now know the name of the $25 million building in Downtown Summerlin where they will be practicing.
SinBin.vegas has learned the Golden Knights practice facility is set to be renamed City National Arena in the near future.
A post on social media appeared today confirming the new title sponsor.
City National is a bank with four locations in the valley. Their headquarters are in Los Angeles and are a subsidiary of the Royal Bank of Canada.
City National Arena in Downtown Summerlin is set to open in late August and will be the home of the first Golden Knights training camp. There will be two full size sheets of ice, the entire Golden Knights staff offices, a workout center, and a second story restaurant overlooking the rinks.
The Golden Knights would not confirm the name.
