First Data Field is getting a new name.
The spring training home of the New York Mets and regular-season home of the St. Lucie Mets is being renamed Clover Park, starting February 2020, according to a press release from Major League Baseball. The change comes after Fiserv acquired First Data in 2019.
The new name is supposed to highlight Fiserv's Clover platform, which has been "powering payments" for St. Lucie Mets fans since 2007, according to the press release. Clover enables payments for thousands of businesses, including over 25 stadiums and arenas across the country.
First Data has had naming rights to the stadium since 2017 as part of an exclusive decade-long marketing partnership between the Mets and Fiserv.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Fiserv by showcasing their innovative Clover technology and appreciate their contribution to making our spring training home field a great place to watch baseball,” New York Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said.
“From making it possible for people to access and manage their banking activities, to allowing them to easily purchase t-shirts at a local business and concessions at the game, Fiserv plays an integral role in people’s daily lives,” said Frank Bisignano, President and Chief Operating Officer of Fiserv. “We’re proud to be part of our communities as we enable people to engage in memorable experiences at the ballpark and beyond.”
