MNP receives naming rights to historic Calgary sports center from Lindsay Park Sports Society
Calgary, Alberta – MNP, one of Canada’s largest professional service providers, has entered into a 10-year sponsorship agreement with the Lindsay Park Sports Society (LPSS) for the naming rights to Calgary’s iconic Lindsay Park Sports Center. The facility will be known as MNP Community and Sport Center effective May 18
“We see an exciting future for our community and sports facilities and our city,” said Jeff Book, LPSS CEO. “For the past 40 years, our goal has been to provide world-class facilities that can be enjoyed by Calgaryans of all ages, qualifications and skills. This collaboration with the MNP will ensure that the legacy continues. ”
The agreement with LPSS is a reflection of MNP’s optimism about innovation, evolution, and revival that is currently taking place throughout the Calgary economy.
As the only national professional services organization in Canada with its head office in Calgary, MNP is committed to the city and its local organizations that bring the community together. The firm has two downtown locations where its people and clients come together for meetings and events, and it works with many Calgary-based providers.
“The MNP made the strategic decision to relocate our headquarters to Calgary in 2001, and we have never looked back,” said Jason Tuffs, MNP chairman and chief executive officer. “In all the cities we operate in, we have a long history of supporting local organizations, so investing in creating MNP communities and sports centers was naturally worthwhile.”
“We made this arrangement with Lindsay Park because our values are consistent with their purpose and vision: to create a sense of community, kinship and well-being in this great city.” Tuffs continues.
The Lindsay Park Sports Center (formerly known as Repsol Sports Center) was built in 1983 to host the Western Canada Summer Games and has a rich history as a training ground for many Canadian Olympic and Paralympic athletes. It has worked with municipal governments over the past four decades to ensure that its facilities are developed to meet the needs of a diverse and growing population.
“All Calgary residents will benefit when we have such accessible and inclusive recreational facilities,” said Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek. “The MNP Community and Sport Center will be a major gathering place for the next generation, and it’s nice to see Lindsay Park and MNP come together for this investment.”
The newly renovated interior of the MNP Community and Sport Center was unveiled to the public on May 18 in a free open house.
LPSS and the City of Calgary have already announced plans for a major expansion project starting in 2023 and within a few years. This expansion will open up new leisure facilities and ensure that all facilities for hosting world-class competitions are up to international standards.
