When the Penguins' new arena opens, it will have a new name. KDKA Investigator Andy Sheehan has learned that Consol Energy has won the naming rights.
The local coal and energy company is claiming more and more of a national and international spotlight.
Next week, the Penguins will announce the sale of the arena naming rights to Consol on a long term basis for at least several million dollars a year.
The Penguins aren't commenting, but in a similar deal, the New Jersey Devils sold naming rights to their arena to Prudential Insurance for $5 million a year.
Business is business, gotta do what you got to do. At least Consol Energy is a local company to Pittsburgh.
