Phoenix Rising Soccer Complex, which has been home to Phoenix Rising FC since 2017, is now known as Casino Arizona Field.

Phoenix Rising announced the multi-year naming rights agreement with Casino Arizona, which is owned and operated by the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, on Friday. Signage reflecting the new name has already been posted at the stadium, just in time for Phoenix Rising's 2019 home opener against New Mexico United on Saturday.

The 6,200-seat stadium is located on the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community near Tempe Marketplace. Phoenix Rising plays in the United Soccer League, the second tier of professional soccer in North America. The club advanced to the USL championship game last season.

“We have had a wonderful relationship with the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, and its member families of the Solanna Group who own the land where our stadium resides, since our launch in 2016. Our stadium is located in close proximity to Casino Arizona, also making this agreement a natural fit," Phoenix Rising governor Berke Bakay said in a statement.

Phoenix Rising announced Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort will have their logos featured on barricades around the field. The stadium's new name will be featured on stadium banners and a scoreboard banner. A permanent monument sign will be installed at the stadium at a later date.

Ground broke on Phoenix Rising's stadium on Feb. 1, 2017 and was completed less than two months later.
