A Los Angeles area credit union is the latest to put its name in lights on an entertainment venue, securing a multi-year deal that removes the banner of the Mattress Firm Amphitheatre.

The naming rights deal has a twist. California Credit Union of Glendale ($3 billion in assets, 163,432 members) is paying to rename it North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre, using the name it applied to the operations of North Island Financial Credit Union after California CU acquired it in early 2017.

The 20,000-seat venue is about 18 miles south of San Diego between Chula Vista and the Mexican border. It opened in 1998 as Coors Amphitheatre with a sell-out concert with the Spice Girls. Concerts this year included Latin singer Luis Miguel, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paramore, Chris Brown and Weezer.
