Điểm đến thể thao và giải trí hàng đầu ở trung tâm thành phố Orlando – đồng thời là sân nhà của Orlando Magic của Hiệp hội Bóng rổ Quốc gia – sẽ được đổi tên thành Kia CENTER.

Amway Center sẽ mang tên mới bắt đầu từ ngày 20 tháng 12 năm 2023. Sự hợp tác của Kia America sẽ bao gồm các biển báo trong nhà và ngoài trời mới, lắp đặt các trạm sạc xe điện, màn hình xe Kia và Kia Terrace, sảnh khách sạn dành cho những người đam mê ô tô, thể thao và âm nhạc.

“Orlando Magic và Kia America đã là đối tác đáng tự hào trong nhiều năm và chúng tôi chia sẻ niềm vui về sự thành công và phát triển của Kia,” Alex Martins (Giám đốc điều hành Magic) nói. “Chúng tôi mong muốn mối quan hệ hợp tác mở rộng của mình sẽ cho phép Kia phát triển thương hiệu của mình và truyền tải thông điệp trực tiếp, có tác động đến cơ sở người hâm mộ của chúng tôi và hơn thế nữa là sử dụng sức mạnh của NBA. Kia cũng trở thành đối tác ‘Nhà vô địch của Cộng đồng’ và chúng tôi mong đợi mong muốn được làm việc cùng nhau để tác động tích cực đến cộng đồng miền Trung Florida.”

“Việc đặt tên Trung tâm Kia là một ví dụ khác về sức mạnh của mối quan hệ đối tác của chúng tôi và mang đến cho chúng tôi một nền tảng thể thao và giải trí quanh năm cho người hâm mộ,” Sean Yoon (Chủ tịch kiêm Giám đốc điều hành của Kia America) nói. “Cơ sở này là một tài sản tuyệt vời dành cho những người coi miền Trung Florida là nhà và những ai đến thăm địa điểm du lịch toàn cầu này. Cùng với quyền đặt tên cho Diễn đàn Kia ở California, giờ đây chúng tôi trải dài từ bờ biển này sang bờ biển khác.”
