We shouldn’t have to wait much longer to get official word on the new name of Las Vegas Arena.

At the moment, it appears T-Mobile has clinched the naming rights, so the new arena could very well end up with the name T-Mobile Arena. –VitalVegas.com

This should come with a major sigh of relief for anyone who feared the name “UFC Center” was actually a possibility.

We did some digging of our own to try and confirm this rumor, and this is what we came up with…

Good enough for us.

In our tour of the Marketing Center we are told there are expected to be a total of eight “major” sponsors. We know of Coca Cola, Toshiba, and now T-Mobile. Other fields that were mentioned were a financial institute, alcoholic beverage company, transportation, and a tech company (does T-Mobile qualify for that?).

Schneider Electric was also announced back in February to become the “First Founding Partner.” So that takes care of the energy field.

Hopefully, T-Mobile has some big plans for the roof because the more I look at the stadium the more the blank white roof cries out for help.

I have to say, I’m good with the name T-Mobile Arena. I like the nickname “The T.”

Now it’s time for Gary Bettman to get his act together give “The T” a permanent resident.
