The home of the Miami Marlins is getting a new name just in time for Thursday’s season opener.
California based lender loanDepot announced they reached a multi-year rights deal to rename the Little Havana stadium that has simply been known as Marlins Park during its previous nine seasons.
Financial terms were not disclosed, and the deal was announced by team officials Wednesday morning.
"This is a milestone agreement for our organization," Marlins CEO Derek Jeter said. "To have loanDepot believing what we're doing down here and having a national brand looking at us as a perfect partner."
The official name of the stadium will become loanDepot park - yes, that's how the new name will officially be spelled.
The Marlins open the 2021 season Thursday against the in-state rival Tampa Bay Rays. First pitch is scheduled for 4:10 p.m.
