Menominee Tribe Buys Naming Rights To G League Arena
The Menominee tribe has "purchased the naming rights" for the NBA G League Wisconsin Herd's arena in Oshkosh. The Herd are the Bucks' minor-league affiliate. Terms of the five-year sponsorship were not released. The $21M, 3,600-seat arena is being "constructed on the south side of Oshkosh and is set to be opened in time for the team's first home game Nov. 17." The new arena will be called the Menominee Nation Arena and "feature the thunderbird, an important part of the tribe's history" (JSONLINE.com, 10/23).
