The Champion Center in the Fox Cities will officially be known as Community First Champion Center Fox Cities.

The grand opening is set for the Fall of 2019.

The announcement was made Friday morning at Grand Chute Town Hall.

“It was very nice to finally be able to come out with the name,” said Pam Seidl, Executive Director of the Fox Cities Convention and Visitors Bureau. “This is something we’ve been working on for months, and we’re really excited for this facility and this community.”

The 164,000-square-foot center will feature a year-round ice rink with seating for up to 1,000, a fieldhouse with four basketball courts or eight volleyball courts, and a seasonal arena that can be an ice rink, four basketball courts, or four volleyball courts.

“This center, for local athletes, is really important for their training and their performance,” Amanda Secor, Chief of Staff for Community First Credit Union said, “but it also is a facility that’s going to draw people into the community.”

A study commissioned by the Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau showed the facility will bring an estimated economic impact of $8.9 million in the first year.
