“We’re excited to announce the return of locally based Marina Auto Group as the 2018 stadium naming rights partner.  Wendy and I have stated since we acquired the operating rights of the stadium, that our desire is to partner with as many locally based companies as possible to collectively support our community and keep professional soccer in Rochester,” said stadium co-operator, David Dworkin. “We have many entertaining promotions planned this season at the stadium in support of both soccer and non-soccer events.”
