The future of Hisense Arena is secured following the signing of a three year deal between naming rights partner Hisense, Melbourne & Olympic Parks and Tennis Australia.
A signing ceremony held today was attended by Dr Lin Lan, CEO of Hisense International, Russell Caplan, Chair of Melbourne & Olympics Parks Trust, and Craig Tiley, CEO of Tennis Australia, who all welcomed the strengthened partnership.
Since its completion in 2000, the multi-purpose facility has hosted a variety of sports including basketball, tennis, netball, boxing, gymnastics, ice hockey, dance sports and cycling in its own velodrome.
The Arena is due to play a big role at the 2015 Australian Open tennis grand slam, with ground pass ticket holders provided admission to the venue meaning more people will have access than ever before.
Hisense Arena is a key part of the Melbourne & Olympic Parks sporting precinct which is also home to AAMI Park, Rod Laver Arena, Westpac Centre, Olympic Park, Eastern Plaza, National Tennis Centre, Melbourne Park Function Centre and the soon to be complete, Margaret Court Arena.
