American Airlines Arena Is Set To Be Renamed Within Months By A New Sponsor

American Airlines has dropped out of the bidding for a new naming rights deal at the arena that the Miami Heat call home, according to Miami Today.

The arena will have a new name within months. American Airlines’ current naming deal ends at the end of 2019.

American Airlines confirmed in a statement that they had dropped out of bidding.

A “nationally renowned company” has toured the facility and is in advanced negotiations with the Heat and Miami-Dade on a new naming deal.

The new sponsorship is expected to be worth at least $6 million per year, minus a 5% commission to a brokerage agency. Miami-Dade will pay $2 million to the heat annually, and keep the rest.

Miami had the fifth highest attendance of any NBA team last year.

The article says “nationally renowned company”, implying Publix is not at all possible for consideration.

Publix has revenues equal to Nike so yeah there’s that…

I don’t think it will be since Mickey Arison is the Heat’s owner.

Why are the naming rights being sold so cheap? 6 mill a year is chump change compared to other cities arenas and stadiums. Two name selections: Just Like Manhattan Arena and Its Hot As Hell Arena.

Is the airplane coming off the roof? Or will another airline sponsor the name? 🤔
