A source close to the negotiations has told Toledo Free Press that Huntington Bank is close to securing naming rights to the Lucas County Arena. The source said negotiations are not final and no commitment has been made, but the deal could close as early as Sept. 30.
Huntington Bank currently owns the naming rights to Huntington Park baseball field in Columbus.
Fifth Third Field was opened in 2002, and is seen as a marketing success for the title bank. It is one of three sports facilities to which Fifth Third Bank owns the naming rights.
