The home of the Miami Heat will be going through another name change after the former naming right’s owner “FTX” filed for bankruptcy in November and its CEO, Sam Bankman-Fried — was hit with fraud and money laundering charges.

Miami-Dade spokesperson Natalia Jaramillo told the Miami Herald the building now as a new name.

“It’s going to be referred to as ‘The Arena’,” Jaramillo said. “With a capital A.”

This is most likely very temporary until they find a new right’s holder, but they couldn’t have been more creative?
