The proposed 4,200-seat arena will be a one-of-a-kind engineered wood structure designed to highlight Idaho's wood products industry. In recognition of the gift, the facility will be named the Idaho Central Credit Union Arena. To date, $34 million has been raised for the project, and groundbreaking will occur when funding for the entire project is secured.
"This wonderful donation from Idaho Central Credit Union to our arena campaign is a game-changing investment for this project, for our university community, and for Idaho," said U of I president Chuck Staben. "The naming gift puts us that much closer to completing a stunning facility that represents Idaho excellence. We are so proud to partner with an organization similarly committed to serving this great state."
