Re: Bang Bros website announces $10M bid for Miami Heat arena naming rights

Posted by FYBklyn1959 on Mon Sep 16 11:21:18 2019, in response to Re: Bang Bros website announces $10M bid for Miami Heat arena naming rights, posted by Orange Blossom Special on Mon Sep 16 09:06:34 2019.

Yeah, they merged with SunTrust. I hadn't heard about the Truist name, sounds weak. So I guess it will be the Truist Center now. I guess the same for the Braves stadium (currently SunTrust Park).

Back to the current BB&T Center, that building has been around for 21 years and has had more names:

National Car Rental Center (1998-2002)
Office Depot Center (2002-2005)
BankAtlantic Center (2005-2012)
BB&T Center (2012-??)

BB&T acquired BankAtlantic in the fall of 2012, so in that case it wasn't the naming rights expiring, but the actual bank.

Of course, that pales next to the local football stadium:

Joe Robbie Stadium
Pro Player Park
Pro Player Stadium
Dolphins Stadium
Dolphin Stadium
Land Shark Stadium
Sun Life Stadium
Hard Rock Stadium

South Flori-DUH for you.
