The Arizona Diamondbacks and Casino Arizona announced a new partnership on Friday, naming Talking Stick Resort as the ​​official casino and resort partner for the team.

“I am thrilled to welcome Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort to our family,” D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall said in a press release.

“The Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community has long been a valued partner of the Arizona Diamondbacks, and I look forward to growing our relationship with Casino Arizona, creating memorable experiences for their guests at Chase Field and impacting members of their community.”

This means fans at Chase Field will see the logos of Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort throughout the stadium, a one-of-a-kind VIP lounge behind the visitor’s dugout and the D-backs will contribute to the annual Native American Inter-Tribal Baseball and Softball Tournament and Native American Recognition Day.

The D-backs have had a partnership established for over a decade at Salt River Fields, the first MLB facility built on Native American land. Since its opening in 2011, Salt River Fields holds the top nine all-time attendance records in the history of MLB Spring Training, according to the release.

“We are always looking for like-minded organizations with which to align our Enterprise,” Ramon Martinez, director of public relations for Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort, said in the release.

“Over the course of our lengthy relationship with the Arizona Diamondbacks, they have demonstrated a true commitment to their fans and the greater community. We are excited for Casino Arizona and Talking Stick Resort to grow with a partner who shares our values.”

The D-backs have committed to investing more than $3,000,000 to the Arizona Native American Community for the past few decades.

In 1999, they started the Native American Inter-Tribal Baseball and Softball Tournament, which has helped 20,000 youth and young adults and 1,200 Inter-Tribal teams to play in the event, according to the team.
