The centre which is located in downtown Los Angeles, the 20,000-seat, award-winning stadia described itself as “one of the most iconic and globally recognised sports and entertainment arenas in the world.” It serves as the authorized home ground of the National Basketball Association(NBA) teams of the Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers and also the National Hockey League(NHL) team LA Kings and as well as the Women’s National Basketball Association(WNBA) team Los Angeles Sparks.

According to reports, an agreement has been made that Crypto.com will pay more than $700 million for the naming rights. The announcement gave details that the change of name will take effect on the 25th of December. In addition to that:

“AEG and Crypto.com will unveil the newly named Crypto.com Arena on Christmas Day… This agreement also makes Crypto.com an official cryptocurrency platform partner of the Los Angeles Lakers and the LA Kings”

The new pact includes “official designation across Crypto.com Arena, L.A. LIVE, Microsoft Theatre, The Novo, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the LA Kings,” the announcement adds.
