The home of the Toronto Maple Leafs will be renamed Scotiabank Arena in July as part of a 20-year strategic partnership, it was announced Tuesday.

The building has been known as Air Canada Centre since opening in February 1999.

"For the past 18 years, Air Canada Centre has not only been home to the Maple Leafs and [Toronto] Raptors [of the NBA], it has also hosted hundreds of the most popular concerts and events in the industry, helping contribute to Toronto's well-deserved reputation as one of the top sports and entertainment destinations in the world," said Larry Tanenbaum, chairman of the board for Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment, the parent company of the Maple Leafs. "We are grateful to Scotiabank for their continued support and this expanded partnership as we look ahead to what we expect to be 20 of the most exciting years in Toronto sports and entertainment history."
