Here in Utica, the Utica Memorial Auditorium will be named the Adirondack Bank Center at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Now of course, that's a great name, but what Central New York themed names could they have gone with?

According to WIBX, The Upper Mohawk Valley Auditorium Authority has signed a 10-year, multi-million dollar naming rights deal with Adirondack Bank. What a great deal, and what a great local name. However, if the Aud had to go with other names, maybe they should use these:

The Utica Club

Think of it like this: The Utica Club serving Utica Club beer! What better match right?

 

The Riggie Bowl Arena

Utica and Chicken riggies are a no brainer. Everyone loves riggies, everyone loves the Aud.

 

The Adirondack Foothills Arena

Utica is located basically at the base of the Adirondacks. You can easily hit the North County by traveling through Utica.

 

The Dick Clark Utica Aud

Dick Clark, was born in Mount Vernon but got his professional start working for WRUN, the radio station his father owned in Utica.

 

The Fran Cosmo Utica Aud

Fran Cosmo is another Mohawk Valley native who made it big. Fans familiar with the 1970’s super band, BOSTON. What better way to honor such a classic rock band?
