American Family Insurance, Milwaukee Brewers collaborate on 2021 ballpark name
American Family Field takes effect on January 1, 2021.
The Milwaukee Brewers ballpark will be re-named American Family Field starting on January 1, 2021, American Family Insurance announced today. The ballpark will continue to be named Miller Park for 2020.
The name change is part of a long-term sponsorship agreement between American Family and the Brewers, announced one year ago. The agreement includes American Family having naming rights for the ballpark beginning in 2021 and continuing for 15 years.
The name American Family Field was a collaborative decision made by American Family and the Brewers. The ballpark logo and other branding elements will be announced later this year.
The name American Family Field incorporates what American Family learned from fans, the Brewers and marketing research that included analysis of the company’s brand and other sporting venue names.
“The name is short and simple. The words ‘American Family’ capture our brand and reflect the family-oriented atmosphere that fans value in the ballpark,” said Sherina Smith, American Family marketing vice president.
As part of the sponsorship agreement, American Family also acquired naming rights to the Brewers spring training complex in Maryvale, Arizona. The complex, which completed an extensive renovation last year, is named American Family Fields of Phoenix.
