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 we learned from fans, the Brewers and marketing research that included analysis of our brand and other sporting venue names,” said Jack Salzwedel, American Family chair and executive officer.
“The name is short, simple and sweet with its alliteration of ‘Family’ and ‘Field’. The words ‘American Family’ capture our brand and reflect the family-orientated atmosphere that our research showed fans clearly value in the ballpark.”
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.
