Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark will have a new name in 2019

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Rimrock Auto Arena at MetraPark will have a new name by May of next year.

Yellowstone County Commissioner John Ostlund said Rimrock Auto Arena had a ten year contract as the major sponsor at MetraPark. With a cost of one hundred thousand dollars per year, Ostlund said the business had an opportunity to extend the contract, but Rimrock Auto has decided to invest their advertising dollars elsewhere.

Ostlund explained what's next for MetraPark.

"Selling a new opportunity for a major sponsor for naming rights," Ostlund said. "Our marketing director has had some calls, but because it's government, we need to do a formal request for proposals so we'll send that out and give everyone an opportunity to come in and bid on that."

Ostlund said the naming rights at MetraPark will go to the highest bidder.
