Crypto.com, one of the world’s most successful cryptocurrency platforms in partnership with AEG, the world’s renowned and leading sports and live entertainment company, has agreed on a historic 20-year naming rights. This arrangement will see AEG-owned Staples Center, one of the most incredible entertainment arenas in the world, renamed Crypto.com Arena. This will be effective from December 25.

To announce the start of its partnership, both Crypto.com and AEG will unveil a new logo along with other branding assets. This will be followed by new internal arena signage of the newly named Crypto.com Arena, slated for Christmas Day when the Los Angeles Lakers team will take on close rivals, the Brooklyn Nets. In addition, all other external signage will be completely replaced by June 2022.
The new partnership brokered by AEG Global Partners in conjunction with Crypto.com places the exchange at the epicenter of some of the most iconic sporting events that will take place in the next two decades.
