The home of the Colorado Avalanche was renamed Ball Arena after a global partnership agreement announced Thursday between Ball Corp. and Kroenke Sports & Entertainment, which owns the Avalanche, the NBA's Denver Nuggets and the Colorado Mammoth of the National Lacrosse League.

The arena had been known as Pepsi Center since it opened in 1999. The Avalanche moved there after playing four seasons at McNichols Arena following their move from Quebec for the 1995-96 season.
