Yes, the Miami Heat’s Arena is Now Called … “The Arena”

Chicago Bulls

After the FTX scandal that rocked the cryptocurrency world at the end of 2022, the Miami Heat knew that FTX Arena would be no more.

The 2021 agreement between Miami-Dade County and the bankrupt company was finally abolished, per the Miami Herald, leaving both the county and the organization to seek a new naming rights partner. So what will team bus drivers now search in their GPS when they arrive in South Beach?

Drum roll, please …

The Arena.

Yup, that’s right. The Miami Heat’s arena is now called “The Arena.”

To be fair, this is said to only be a placeholder name until a new match is found. But I’d be lying if I said it still didn’t give me a good chuckle, especially when the Deputy Communication Director for the Miami Mayor had to tell the Herald that arena will need to be spelled “with a capital A.”

Anyway, let’s hope the Heat’s next partner isn’t a complete fraud!
