#5 Las Vegas Aces get new arena name
A lot has changed for the Las Vegas Aces over the last few months, and while some of that has to do with their strategic moves in free agency, it also has to do with Mark Gruden buying the team earlier in the year. In fact, the organization has already signed a multi-year deal with Michelob Ultra to give them naming rights over the arena. That means the Mandalay Bay Casino resort arena is now the Michelob Ultra arena, a huge win sponsorship-wise for the Aces.
“On behalf of the WNBA, I am pleased to welcome Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis to the WNBA family at a time when the momentum for the league has never been higher,” said WNBA commissioner Cathy Engelbert.
