This marks the third name in the quarter-century history of Salt Lake City’s main entertainment venue, the naming rights agreement with Vivint is set to run until 2025.
“The Utah Jazz and the arena are proud to have Vivint as our new naming rights partner, Vivint is a long-time supporter of the Jazz, is a Utah-based company, and has a deep commitment to the community and our fans. These were all qualities we looked for when we began this process. ” – Utah Jazz President Steve Starks

The name change, effective immediately, will be visible throughout the facility, with Vivint Smart Home Arena being prominent on the exterior of the building, the lower panels of the center hung scoreboard, all digital building signage and on the Utah Jazz basketball court.
