The Reign will be calling Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario home for the next five years.
The team recently reached a lease deal with new building owner SMG, as first reported by The Press-Enterprise. The five-year lease has an option for another five.
“I can tell you it was a matter of months, not weeks,” said team president Darren Abbott via phone on Wednesday in regards to how long it took to get the deal done. “We went back and forth on a lot of things and it’s a relief to have it done, to know that we have a home here and a good arrangement for five plus another five, so really 10 years. It’s good to get it done and come to an arrangement that everyone can work with.”
