Hurricanes and PNC Bank to Introduce \'PNC Arena\' on March 15
RALEIGH, NC – On March 15, the home of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes and North Carolina State University’s men’s basketball team will become PNC Arena. The Hurricanes and PNC Bank, a member of The PNC Financial Services Group, Inc., will mark the occasion with special activities surrounding the team’s home game on March 15 against the St. Louis Blues.

On the morning of March 15, new PNC Arena in-ice logos will be unveiled prior to the Hurricanes’ 10:30 a.m. morning skate. Exterior building signage will be revealed following the team’s media availability, around 11:30 a.m. As always, the Hurricanes’ morning skate is open to fans and the media.

Prior to that evening’s game against the St. Louis Blues, fans will enjoy special on-ice projections of some of the top moments in the building’s history. During the game, promotions will focus on the building-name change, including a commemorative puck, more than 200 PNC Arena gift card giveaways and more.

The building-name change comes as PNC Bank’s acquisition of RBC Bank (USA), subject to customary closing conditions. The conversion of customer accounts and branches is scheduled for March 2-4, with branches re-opening as PNC Bank on March 5.

Leading up to the building’s name change, www.CarolinaHurricanes.com will count down the top 25 Hurricanes moments in RBC Center history, as one clip is unveiled each day, with the No. 1 moment being unveiled the morning of March 15.
