Credit Unions on P.E.I. have renewed their agreement for naming rights to Credit Union Place in Summerside, P.E.I.

The new agreement runs through to 2028.

"Through the last decade we have seen the value this facility has given to the Island community and are so very pleased to be continuing this wonderful partnership," said Sarah Millar, general manager of Consolidated Credit Union in Summerside, in a news release.

The city won't disclose publicly how much the agreement is worth.

The Credit Union's relationship with the sports centre goes back to its opening in 2007.

  • An outdoor winter wonderland hosted by Confederation Bridge.
  • A performance by Cirque Atlantic.
  • A hockey game: Summerside Western Capitals versus Yarmouth.

The birthday party will be March 4.
