Grand Chute, Wis. – Fox Cities Sports Development, Inc. announced today a partnership with BayCare Clinic, LLP for naming rights of the seasonal arena at the Community First Champion Center (CFCC). The one-of-a-kind space will now be known as the BayCare Clinic Seasonal Arena.

This partnership with BayCare Clinic will continue to support the great programs held at Community First Champion Center,” said Pam Seidl, President of Fox Cities Sports Development, Inc. and Executive Director of the Fox Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau.
Opened in November 2019, the Community First Champion Center has quickly become regarded as one of the best ice rink and hard court facilities in the nation.
