Amerant Bank Arena: A Winning Partnership for the Florida Panthers and South Florida

A South Florida Powerhouse Duo

It’s time for a fresh new era at the arena formerly known as the FLA Live Arena. The beloved Florida Panthers have partnered with Amerant Bank to rename their home ice at Amerant Bank Arena.
This deepened partnership between two major South Florida names is a power move promising big things for hockey fans and the local community. Let’s take a closer look at what this means:

The naming rights deal represents the Panthers’ commitment to delivering a world-class experience for their loyal fans. Teaming up with a respected community bank like Amerant shows they’re invested in South Florida for the long haul.

Community Impact

But it’s not just about having the Amerant name on the iconic arena in Sunrise. This expanded partnership will allow the Panthers and Amerant to Join forces on giving back to the communities they serve across Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties. One prime example? Last season’s “Saves for Vets” campaign raised over $120,000 for nine veteran-focused nonprofits thanks to Panthers goalies’ performances, with more impactful community initiatives to come.

Longtime fans will appreciate that some beloved traditions remain, like the Amerant Vault premium seating area dead center ice. Amerant will also continue backing the Panthers Kids Club and youth hockey programs.

Bringing the Partnership to Fans’ Wallets

But the Panthers-Amerant partnership won’t just live at the arena. Fans can take their support to another level with the new Florida Panthers debit card from Amerant Bank, which debuted during Game 1 of the 2024 playoffs with a commercial and billboard featuring Florida Panthers Forward Matthew Tkachuk. For those looking for white-glove service, there will also be a Private Client debit card option exclusively through Amerant to pre-order now, available July 2024.

The Future is bright in Sunrise

At the end of the day, this is about cultivating a winning culture both on and off the ice. Panthers President and CEO Matt Caldwell sums it up nicely, saying the partnership aligns with the team’s goals of “delivering first-class customer service and serving our local South Florida community.”
So, get excited, South Florida! As fans pack Amerant Bank Arena to cheer on the 2024 champions, The Florida Panthers, they’ll be part of a revitalized hockey experience deeply connected to the diverse community they call home. The future is bright(er) than ever in Sunrise.
