FLA Live Arena is no more.

The Panthers announced their home arena will now be called Amerant Bank Arena. This is the 6th name change for the building since it opened in 1998.

“After a comprehensive search with WME Sports over the past year, we felt expanding our experienced and successful partnership with Amerant Bank would be the best business decision to align with both our goals of delivering first-class customer service and serving our local South Florida community,” said Panthers President & CEO Matt Caldwell. “We are grateful to Jerry Plush and the entire Amerant Bank leadership for their investment and shared commitment to South Florida and to the Florida Panthers, as well as the governments of Broward County and the City of Sunrise who worked with us to ensure a premier partnership.”

Amerant Bank has four locations in Broward County branches with another opening soon in Downtown Ft. Lauderdale, an operations center in Miramar, and recently announced a Broward County Regional Headquarters in Plantation.
