Alaska Airlines named official sponsor of NHL Seattle

SEATTLE – Seattle’s hockey team is still without a name, but it has an official sponsor.

Hockey fans will book their tickets next season at the Key Arena, with the Alaska Airlines Atrium attached.

The atrium is a 36,000 square-foot addition, located on the south side of the arena, and will serve as the main entrance for all events.

The Seattle-based airline was named the official sponsor of the NHL team Thursday.

“I grew up playing hockey and love the drive and energy of players and fans alike,” said Alaska Airlines President Ben Minicucci.” This is an incredible sport.”

Alaska will also partner with other Seattle teams like the Storm and outlets like the Museum of Pop Culture and Pacific Science Center.

NHL Seattle’s inaugural season begins in 2021 and updates can be found here.
