TCF Bank Stadium will change its name to Huntington Bank Stadium beginning this fall, pending approval from the University of Minnesota Board of Regents.
The name change comes after an agreement was reached by Huntington Bancshares to purchase TCF Bank Stadium in December 2020. The acquisition closed earlier this month, which now brings the issue to the Board of Regents to approve the name and logo that will be used for the stadium.
University president Joan Gabel has recommended approval for the docket item, which also includes bringing the Huntington Bank name to the U Card Royalty Agreement as well as the Affinity agreement that allowed TCF to market banking products to students, staff, and season ticket holders for certain sports.
TCF Bank acquired naming rights for the home of the Minnesota Gopher football team in 2005 with a 26-year, $35 million agreement that runs through 2030, and has been the name of the stadium since it opened in 2009.
If approved, the Huntington Bank Stadium name will make its debut on Sept. 2 when the Gophers host the Ohio State Buckeyes.
