The press release on the deal labels it “the most important deal in athletics department history.”

Update: According to Arizona Sports’ John Gambadoro, the deal will pay Arizona State over $50 million during the 15 years.

“The deal was brokered in partnership between Oak View Group Global Partnerships, Pac-12 MMR and Sun Devil Athletics,” the release details.

Mountain America also owns the naming rights of Arizona State’s next-door iceplex, the “Mountain America Community Iceplex.”

They were approached with the partnership idea for the football stadium in late May.

“This is one of the important naming rights deals in the history of college sports and that speaks to the power and the future of our brand,” said ASU President Michael Crow in the release. “We are grateful for Mountain America’s investment in our student-athletes and our programs. This agreement creates a pathway to help us compete at the highest levels of athletics in today’s changing environment.”
