We have a new name for the spring-training home of the New York Mets, as the former First Data Field will now be called Clover Park after a corporate takeover of the previous naming-rights partner.
This change follows the 2019 acquisition of First Data by Fiserv, a provider of payments and financial services technology. Clover, offered by Fiserv, has been powering transactions at the ballpark since 2017.
The St. Lucie Mets venue’s naming rights have belonged to First Data since 2017, as part of a 10-year strategic marketing partnership. The Mets and Fiserv will continue the existing partnership.
“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,” said New York Mets COO Jeff Wilpon.
“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 President and Chief Operating Officer of Fiserv Frank Bisignano. “We’re proud to be part of our communities as we enable people to engage in memorable experiences at the ballpark and beyond.”
