The Tampa Bay Lightning aren’t moving anytime soon, but their home arena is about to get a new name.
St. Pete Times Forum is going to become the Tampa Bay Times Forum on January 1, 2012 thanks to the hometown newspaper who bought the rights to name the arena changing its name. Making sure the name sticks around a little longer, the two sides also agreed to extend the naming rights agreement through til 2018.
