US Cellular pays the Coliseum $200,000 a year for their name to be on the building. They have a contract with the City of Bloomington.
According to the contract:
1.6 City and Management shall each use their best efforts to secure the following activities for the Facility each year:
(a) Approximately 36 home games of a professional hockey team (e.g., East Coast Hockey League, American Hockey League or United Hockey League) based in the Bloomington, Illinois, area.
(b) Approximately eight home games of a professional arena football team (e.g., United Indoor Football League or Arena Football2) based in the Bloomington, Illinois, area.
(c) Approximately three Illinois High School Association or Illinois Elementary Association tournaments or events.
Has anybody asked US Cellular if taking “professional” out of the CIAM contract is okay with them? Since US Cellular quit doing business in the local market, would they jump at the chance to get out of the contract?
