Bang Bros Bid For Naming Rights To Miami Heat Stadium And Want To Call It 'The BBC'

After more than two decades with the sponsor, the AmericanAirlines Arena in Miami is about to undergo a name change.

The airline has sponsored the arena, home of the Miami Heat, since 1999. However, the airline is reportedly no longer ‘in the mix’ as the arena seeks a new sponsor and a new naming-rights deal for 2020.

And while many of us sit back and hope the name will be changed to Arena-y McArena Face, it seems another world-renowned company, also famous for their friendly cabin crew, are after the naming-rights to the home of Miami Heat.

Alexis Aran Coello, communications manager for American Airlines, told the Miami Herald:

American Airlines is proud to call Miami home. We are not seeking to renew naming rights for the arena, but remain the official airline of the Miami Heat and continue to invest in programs that support the community, where 13,500 American team members live and work.

We wish Miami-Dade County well in their search for a new sponsor.

So who’s after the naming rights? Namely, BangBros, the self-proclaimed ‘world’s best **** site’.

The company has reportedly submitted a $10 million bid for the naming rights, aiming to rename the stadium to the BangBros Centre, shortened to ‘The BBC’.

In a statement, the **** company wrote:

Miami is known for many things – South Beach, beautiful women, and sports teams like the professional NBA team the Miami Heat. Miami is also known for BangBros. So it makes sense to pair up winning programs like the Miami Heat and BangBros for a sponsorship opportunity, naming the home arena they play in.

Hoping to help the team throw their balls around and score, BangBros added: ‘BangBros feels they need to show their support for the next wave of winning to come and give back to the city that’s treated them so well.’

The statement continued:

Both the Heat and BangBros have become staples of the city, with huge fans of each. It doesn’t get much more Miami than having the arena sponsored by Bangbros.

Too late for an April Fools? It seems the bid is actually real, even if it is all one big publicity stunt.

I guess I don't really know how much these things sell for, but $10 Million feels like a really low amount for the naming rights to an NBA/NHL arena.

Yeah they probably only lodged a bit for the free press they knew it would get.
