Sommet Center is now Nashville Arena

Nashville’s Sommet Center will now be known as simply “The Nashville Arena” due to a naming dispute between Sommet Group of Tennessee and The Nashville Predators Hockey League

sommet-centerThe Sommet Center in Nashville will be renamed Nashville Arena for now as part of a naming-rights dispute between the Nashville Predators and Sommet Group of Tennessee.

Nashville Sports Authority officials reportedly approved the name change during a Dec. 3 meeting but said the venue could remain under the Sommet name should the parties work out their legal differences.

The Predators are suing Sommet Group, claiming the company reneged on making payments per the 2007 naming rights deal.

Sommet officials claim they stopped the payments because the Predators used a competitor for certain goods and services when Sommet was to be the preferred provider.Country Music Photo Gallery
