Home to Miami Heat for the last 20 years, when the present deal expires American Airlines won’t be “in the mix” for naming rights to the arena per reports.
The home of the Miami Heat is getting a new name: American Airlines is no longer vying for the naming rights it bought more than two decades ago, Miami-Dade Deputy Mayor Ed Marquez said Monday.
“American Airlines, they’re not in the mix,” he said.
With less than three full months remaining in 2019, the arena’s new name has yet to be determined.
“Nothing is yet official, he said, but at least one ‘nationally renowned company’ is in advanced talks to rechristen what by January will no longer be AmericanAirlines Arena.”
Incidentally American Airlines currently has the naming rights to the home of the “beloved” Dallas Mavericks, American Airlines Center.
