Ducks to stay in Anaheim through 2048
ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Anaheim has approved a deal that will keep the Ducks in the local Honda Center through at least 2048.
The City Council on Tuesday approved a deal that extends the current Ducks agreement, which ends in 2023, by 25 years. The deal also permits up to five additional five-year extensions.
The team also promises to continue featuring Anaheim in its name.
The Ducks are owned by Anaheim Arena Management, which operates the city-owned stadium.
The agreement sells the company 16 acres of nearby land to develop for $10 million as long as parking is still provided. The city also gets a larger cut of arena revenues.
Team owners Henry and Susan Samueli issued a statement saying they’re thrilled that the Ducks have “a strong and secure future in Anaheim.”
