The Pepsi Center is now the Ball Arena. On Thursday, the owner of the Pepsi Center, errr, Ball Arena, announced that after more than 20 years of bearing the name of the soda, the home to the Nuggets and other local sports teams will now be named after that one company that makes the mason jars.
“It is with great pride that we introduce Ball Arena as the new home of the Denver Nuggets, Colorado Avalanche and Colorado Mammoth,” said Kronke Sports and Entertainment founder and chairman E. Stanley Kroenke. “Our goal in selecting a long-term international venues partner was to find a Colorado-based company with global renown to grow side-by-side with our talented young teams. Ball Corporation is an ideal fit for that vision, an innovative leader that shares our commitment to our local community, to environmental sustainability and creating quality jobs in Colorado.”
The Ball Arena hasn’t hosted a sports game or concert since the start of the pandemic.
