FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Lutheran Health SportsCenter will no longer be called Lutheran Health SportsCenter as Canlan searches for new naming rights partner.

Lutheran Health Network and Canlan Ice Sports have come to a mutual agreement to not continue naming rights for the multipurpose facility at Ice Way Dr.

“While we continue to support the programs offered at the facility, LHN has decided to explore other opportunities to further its ongoing objective to promote wellness and help increase physical activity throughout the region,” said Geoff Thomas, public relations supervisor, Lutheran Health Network. “We have had a positive experience working with Canlan during the first four years of the SportsCenter’s existence.”

The Canlan-managed facility opened in April 2010 and adopted the Lutheran Health SportsCenter name six months later.

“LHN helped us build a good foundation for long-term growth,” said Shari Lichterman, vice president of eastern operations, Canlan Ice Sports Corp. “We look forward to capitalizing on that momentum.”

Canlan has already initiated a search for a new naming rights partner.
