PHOENIX – The massive sports and entertainment complex opening next year in southeast Mesa will be known as Bell Bank Park under a 10-year naming rights deal announced Tuesday.

The 320-acre facility at Ellsworth and Pecos roads near Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport is scheduled to open in January.

Construction on the privately owned project, known as Legacy Sports Park until the naming rights deal, started in September 2020.

Bell Bank is a North Dakota-based financial services company with branches in Chandler, Phoenix and Peoria and more Arizona locations in the works.

“Bell Bank Park will be a special place to compete and train, and gather with family and friends to enjoy sports and live entertainment,” Chad Miller, CEO of Legacy Sports USA, the park’s developer, said in a press release.

“Sharing similar core values of family and giving back with Bell Bank, we are thrilled to have them as our naming rights partner for our new complex.”

The indoor-outdoor facility, which includes a multipurpose arena and 2.7-acre lawn for concerts and other events, is expected to create around 1,500 jobs and welcome 5 million visitors a year.

Bell Bank Park will have 57 indoor volleyball courts, 41 pickleball courts, 23 futsal courts, 19 basketball courts, 12 beach volleyball courts and eight baseball/softball fields.

There will also be performance, fitness, wellness, gymnastics, cheer and dance centers as well as a space for esports competitions.
