The Sun National Bank Center (formerly known as the Sovereign Bank Arena, and also referred to as the Mercer County Arena) is a $53 million, 8,500 seat arena in Trenton, New Jersey, that is home to the Trenton Devils of the ECHL and other special events. In 2010 it will be home to the New Jersey Kings of the American Indoor Football Association. Naming rights to the arena were bought by Sovereign Bank for a ten year, $2.7 million term in support of its newly acquired Trenton Savings Bank and other New jersey branches. On November 13, 2009, Sun National Bank signed a naming rights deal for seven years for $2.1 million.
The Arena opened on October 6, 1999.
The Arena seats approximately 8,100 for hockey and other ice events, 8,600 for basketball and up to 10,500 for concerts, family shows, and other events which makes it the largest arena in Southern New Jersey.
The arena is managed by Global Spectrum, a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania based arm of sports and entertainment conglomerate Comcast-Spectacor.
