The NBA’s Utah Jazz will now play home games in Vivint Smart Home Arena. Previously known as EnergySolutions Arena, the naming rights for the 19,911-seat venue will be for 10 years.
“The Utah Jazz and the arena have been an incredible economic engine for this region, and have created a tremendous sense of pride among Utahns,” said Todd Pedersen, CEO of Vivint, in a statement. “This agreement extends far beyond a typical ‘logo-on-the-building’ arrangement—it’s a true partnership built around innovation, community impact, and the drive to elevate the prominence of Utah.”
Arena owner and operator Larry H. Miller Sports & Entertainment and Vivent’s partnership includes an interactive “Vivint Smart Home Experience” on the arena concourse, expertise in products and services to improve the game night fan experience, and upgraded security and automation technology at the basketball facilities.
“I am really pleased about this association between two Utah businesses,” said Gail Miller, owner of the Larry H. Miller Group of Companies, in a statement. “Vivint shares our vision of having the arena be a gathering place for our community where millions of visitors can enjoy the Jazz and other first-class entertainment. I also want to thank EnergySolutions for their past contributions and continued support of our company and the Jazz.”
