Miami-Based Porn Site BangBros.com Bids $10 Million To Name Home Of Miami Heat

A Miami-based porn website has launched an ambitious $10 million bid to secure the naming rights for the Miami Heat’s home venue.

The former American Airlines Arena would be renamed The BangBros Center or BBC should the company win the bid.

“Miami is known for many things — South Beach, beautiful women and sports teams like the professional NBA team the Miami Heat,” the adult website wrote on Twitter.

“So it makes sense to pair up winning programs like the Miami Heat and BangBros for a sponsorship opportunity, naming the home arena they play in.”

American Airlines, the largest airline in Miami, announced in September that it was no longer looking to renew its sponsorship with the facility when it expires on Dec. 31.

“American Airlines is proud to call Miami home. We are not seeking to renew naming rights for the arena, but remain the official airline of the Miami Heat and continue to invest in programs that support the community, where 13,500 American team members live and work,” said Alexis Aran Coello, communications manager for the Texas-based airline. “We wish Miami-Dade County well in their search for a new sponsor.”

The porn site’s offer would give them naming rights to the arena for a decade.

“The arena is owned by Miami-Dade County and costs the county about $5.5 million a year in subsidies and the county receives barely any of the revenue from the $2 million each year that American currently pays the Heat,” The Hill notes.

While it is unlikely that the NBA will take this bid seriously, fans had a great time toying with the idea on Twitter.
