Mashantucket — Foxwoods Resort Casino is renaming the casino formerly known as MGM Grand at Foxwoods as The Fox Tower.

The Mashantucket Pequot Tribe, which owns Foxwoods, announced the change this morning in a statement.

"This transition is the first of many changes and development taking place at the resort," Jason Guyot, Foxwoods' vice president of resort operations, said. "We are proud to announce this new name as it speaks to the tribe's long and storied history as the 'Fox People' and reconfirms our commitment to what the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe created over 22 years ago."

The tribe announced in October that it was ending its licensing partnership with Las Vegas-based MGM Resorts International.

MGM Grand at Foxwoods opened in May 2008.
