2 min read

Mid-South Ford Dealers and Shelby’s Trio have joined as founding partners of the new F&M Bank Arena in Clarksville. F&M Bank Arena is scheduled to open in 2023 under Sabertooth Sports & Entertainment (SS&E) management.

“We are thrilled that Ford and Shelby’s Trio have elected to join F&M Bank Arena as founding partners,” Danny Butler Vice President and General Manager of Ford Ice Centers and Project Manager for F&M Bank Arena said. “We are excited to grow our relationship with Ford at the ice centers, which started in Antioch in 2014 and continued with Bellevue. Shelby’s Trio and the Maynard family are dedicated leaders in the Clarksville community, and we are looking forward to both long-term partnerships.”

F&M Bank Arena’s primary tenant will be Austin Peay State University, whose men’s and women’s basketball teams will call the facility home. The arena’s main bowl will also be able to add an ice surface, giving it the ability to host hockey tournaments and attract larger on-ice events or competitions much like the existing Ford Ice Centers in Antioch and Bellevue.
