First Data Field, the spring training home of the New York Mets and regular-season home of the St. Lucie Mets, is getting a new name.

The club announced that beginning in February 2020 the facility will be called Clover Park.

The team said the change is the result of last year's acquisition of First Data by Fiserv and its Clover platform which enables payments at thousands of businesses.

“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,” New York Mets COO Jeff Wilpon said in a statement.

Clover Park will host 16 spring training games in 2020, beginning on Feb. 22 when the Mets host the Miami Marlins, the team said in a news release.
