New home of Detroit Red Wings is named…

DETROIT, Mich. (WLNS) – For years the Detroit Red Wings have called the Joe Louis Arena home.

They’ll take the ice at the newly-built, newly-named “Little Caesars Arena” when it opens for the 2017 season.

The name was announced today by Little Caesars and Olympia Entertainment.

The 20-year naming rights agreement averages more than $6.25 million per year.

Mike Ilitch and his family own the Red wings, Tigers and the Little Caesars pizza chain.

The arena will also been known as the “Detroit Events Center” and will host other events.

It will be part of a broader entertainment district being built north of downtown.

The Wings currently play at Joe Louis Arena, which opened in 1979.
