DENVER - Metropolitan State University of Denver has sold the naming rights to its new athletic complex for $1 million.
Regency Student Housing, the off-campus housing for Auraria Campus students, bought the naming rights for 10 years.
Under the agreement, the university’s new athletic complex will be named The Regency Athletic Complex at MSU Denver.
"We are thrilled with this opportunity to reaffirm the relationship between MSU Denver and Regency Student Housing," said Angelique Salazar Moyer, vice president of operations for Central Street.
The athletics complex includes eight tennis courts that opened in August, a soccer stadium scheduled for completion by fall 2014, and baseball and softball diamonds in early 2015. The long-term project plan includes construction of a 20,000-square-foot building to house locker rooms, a strength and conditioning facility, and an athletic training room.
The complex is located south of the Colfax Avenue viaduct adjacent to Shoshone Street, east of Interstate 25.
