WILKES-BARRE — The Coal Street complex in Wilkes-Barre will soon be known by a new name: the Toyota SportsPlex.

Mayor Tom Leighton and others made the announcement Wednesday afternoon at the ice rink.

Under the deal, the city will get $55,000 a year for the next five years.

Officials say money will be used to pay off construction of the complex.

In addition to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the city says more than 300,000 people use the Coal Street complex every year.
