TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - After a dozen years as the Tampa Bay Times Forum, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s home arena has a new name.

Amalie Oil Co. is assuming naming rights of the downtown Tampa entertainment arena and concert venue, which will now be called Amalie Arena.

Lightning chairman and owner Jeff Vinik made the announcement Wednesday. The Tampa Bay Times is shifting to become the exclusive print sponsor of the recently renovated 19,204-seat arena.

The Tampa Bay Times (https://bit.ly/1qcN2x3) reports that Amalie Oil has been located on 30 acres in the Port of Tampa since 1977 and has 250 employees. It supplies motor oil and industrial lubricants to international oil companies, automotive retailers, distributors, retailers, mass merchandisers and private label customers in 50 states and more than 100 countries.
