Samuel Bankman-Fried’s FTX crypto exchange is reportedly one vote away from winning a naming-rights deal for the arena of the NBA’s Miami Heat. The deal, which is believed to be worth $135 million, is set to be approved on March 26 by the Miami-Dade County Commission.
Miami-Dade to Get $5 Million a Year
According to a report, as part of this agreement, the venue, which has been known as the “American Airlines Arena” for two decades, will be renamed the “FTX Arena.” In return, Miami-Dade, which controls the naming rights for the building, will receive “an undisclosed amount of yearly payments from FTX.”

However, as part of the deal, Miami-Dade is expected to “pay the (Miami) Heat $2 million a year under an option the county exercised in 2018 to find the arena’s next sponsor.” While officials have not yet disclosed the net revenue to accrue to Miami-Dade, journalist Joe Pompliano tweeted the city will realize a net gain of $5 million from the deal.
