The five-year extension means the sports and entertainment venue will continue to be known as Bon Secours Wellness Arena at least until 2029, according to a news release.

The Greenville Arena District is the governing body of Bon Secours Wellness Arena.

"It’s been nearly a decade since we took over the naming rights of Bon Secours Wellness Arena, and it’s been a fantastic partnership that continues to be a source of pride,” Matt Caldwell, market president of Bon Secours St. Francis, said in the news release. “Together with General Manager Beth Paul and her staff at the arena, we’ve continued to keep wellness as the central focus of this partnership — hosting important health screenings and community programs such as Well Walkers in addition to providing educational events like the annual Human Trafficking Symposium.”

Since the original agreement in 2013, Bon Secours St. Francis Health System has used the partnership to work toward positive impacts to the Greenville community’s health and wellness. As part of the renewal, Bon Secours St. Francis Health System's branding will continue to be featured prominently throughout the arena. The partnership will continue to deliver community events such as Well-Walkers, health screenings and other wellness-oriented programs.

“We’ve truly used this collaboration to expand our reach beyond hospital walls and live out our mission of building healthier communities, which is why we are very excited to extend this partnership and continue working together to make a difference in our community for many years to come,” Caldwell said in the release.

Bon Secours Wellness Arena attracts a diverse range of high-profile events including family shows, concerts, sports championships and conventions.

Beth Paul, general manager of Bon Secours Wellness Arena, emphasized the importance of extending the naming rights partnership: “We are proud of our long-standing partnership with Bon Secours St. Francis Health System, and they share in our commitment to a first-class fan experience and a long-standing commitment to our community,” she said in the release. “The Bon Secours Wellness Arena has long been a hub of entertainment in Greenville, and we are fast approaching our 25th anniversary — we are proud to enter the next chapter of community impact, together with Bon Secours St. Francis Health System.”

Bon Secours Wellness Arena is at 650 N. Academy St. in downtown Greenville. With a seating capacity of 15,000, the arena hosts a diverse range of live events, including concerts, family shows, sporting competitions, minor league hockey, seminars and more.
