The crown jewel of Lee County School District’s naming rights portfolio is now off the market. According to reports, the Lee County School District has reached a naming rights partnership with Lee Health worth a total of nearly $300,000. Per the terms of the agreement, the home football stadium of Bonita Springs High School will be named “Lee Health Stadium” for the next five years.
Lee Health Stadium At Bonita Springs High School
With over 100 locations and more than 12,500 employees, Lee Health is the largest health system in Southwest Florida. The contract was facilitated by Tebo & Associates which was retained by Lee County Schools to secure naming rights sponsorship agreements at a number of its high school stadiums, gymnasiums and indoor theaters. Bonita Springs High School is a newly constructed facility at 25592 Imperial Parkway that will open in the Fall.
The announcement comes on the same day that a naming rights deal was announced for nearby Estero High School. Going forward, the school’s home football venue will be known as Fast AC Field at Jeff Sommer Stadium. Fast AC is a heating and air conditioning company with ties to the Cape Coral – Fort Myers area. The naming rights arrangements for both schools have come roughly seven months after The North Law Firm secured naming rights for the home stadium of Dunbar Stadium in Fort Myers.
“We are proud to have our name on the new stadium, and proud to foster a partnership between education and health care that will benefit Lee County’s students. As we prepare to open our new facility at Coconut Point, we look forward to continuing to take an active role in the south Lee County community. I wish the Bull Sharks the best of luck in their inaugural season at Lee Health Stadium this fall.” – Larry Antonucci, M.D., MBA, Lee Health President & CEO.
“Lee Health has been a long supporter of The School District of Lee County and we are thrilled to partner with them to name the stadium at the new Bonita Springs High School. This affiliation will directly benefit our students and employees and we could not ask for a better ally.” – Dr. Greg Adkins, Superintendent at Lee County Schools
