New York Community Bank is proud to announce that it has signed on as the Marquee Partner for the new Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum in Uniondale, New York.
Closed for renovations in 2015, the sports and concert venue is scheduled to reopen on April 5, 2017 as the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum Presented by New York Community Bank. The New Coliseum will offer 13,000 seats for hockey, 13,500 for basketball, and 14,500 for concert configurations, with the ability to flex up. The bowl will have a theater seating option for 4,000 guests.
As Marquee Sponsor, NYCB also obtained the naming rights for the future entertainment and retail plaza, which will be named “NYCB Live”. The Bank will function as the official banking partner of the New Coliseum and retail complex providing banking services and ATMs to both venues.
“By bringing together top notch financial services and world-class entertainment, NYCB is taking a leadership role ensuring Long Island becomes an even greater place to live, work and play," said Andrew Kaplan, Executive Vice President of Retail Products and Services at NYCB. “For a long time we have enthusiastically supported our veterans, and NYCB is especially proud that this partnership provides a lasting tribute to Long Islanders who have served our country.”
