CenturyLink Center Omaha may be getting a new name.
The Metropolitan Entertainment and Convention Authority board voted Wednesday morning to hire a consultant to work on a new naming rights contract, possibly with a new sponsor, for the downtown arena and convention center.
The current 15-year contract with CenturyLink, signed in 2003, is set to expire.
The consultant is Professional Sports Partners. MECA officials are hoping a naming rights deal will bring in more than $10 million.
“We’ve enjoyed a good working relationship with CenturyLink and would welcome the opportunity to continue that partnership,” Roger Dixon, MECA president and CEO, said in a press release.
