Forbes is reporting that the Seattle Mariners home stadium which has been known as Safeco Field since 1999, will be renamed via a new naming rights deal with T-Mobile beginning with the 2019 MLB season. The naming rights deal with Safeco Insurance — 20 years for $40 million — expired this past season and Safeco decided not to renew. The T-Mobile deal could be for upward of $6 million per year.

NBC Plans To Heat Up Next NHL Ice Age With Record Number Of Games in 2018-19

NYSJ Sports-Entertainment Business News Service

August 13, 2018: The calendar still reads summer but NBC Sports Group is preparing for the coming ice age.

NBC Sports said it would broadcast 109 NHL regular-season games during the 2018-19 season, its most since acquiring NHL rights prior to the 2005-06 season.

NBC will air the 2019 NHL All-Star Weekend from SAP Center in San Jose, Calif. Jan. 25-26.

It will be highlighted by live coverage of the All-Star Game on Saturday, Jan. 26, in prime time on NBC, the first time the All-Star Game will be televised live on a broadcast network since 1997.

Also coming this season is the debut of Wednesday Night Hockey on NBCSN, which will showcase the network’s “most diverse schedule since it acquired NHL rights prior to the 2005-06 season, as well as the NHL’s current and rising stars.”

On Jan. 1, the 2019 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic will feature the Boston Bruins and the Chicago Blackhawks in Notre Dame Stadium, South Bend, Ind., on NBC.

NBC said the NHL Winter Classic has produced the five most-watched regular-season games in NHL history.

The 2019 Coors Light NHL Stadium Series will feature the Pittsburgh Penguins and Philadelphia Flyers on Feb. 23 in prime time on NBC in Lincoln Financial Field, home of the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles.

The NHL regular season and NBC Sports regular-season coverage begins Oct. 3 on NBCSN, when the Stanley Cup champion Washington Capitals host the Boston Bruins, with a ceremony raising their Stanley Cup title banner in Capital One Arena.

NBC Sports will present 13 NHL games on NBC, beginning with the 2018 Discover Thanksgiving Showdown on Friday, Nov, 23, when the Philadelphia Flyers host the New York Rangers.

Overseas contests in China, Germany and Switzerland are part of the NHL pre-season schedule of 110 games in 19 days, beginning Sept. 15.

The NHL returns to China for the second consecutive season for two games between the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames as part of the 2018 O.R.G. NHL China Games.

The teams will play at Shenzhen Universiade Sports Center in Shenzhen on Sept. 15 (2:30 AM ET, NHL Network) and in Cadillac Arena in Beijing on Sept. 19 (7:30AM ET, NBCSN).

Also overseas during the pre-season, the New Jersey Devils play SC Bern, in Bern, Switzerland (PostFinance Arena) on Oct. 1; and the Edmonton Oilers play Kölner Haie, int Cologne, Germany (Lanxess Arena) on Oct. 3.

“With the impressive growth of fan interest in non-traditional NHL markets combined with the emergence of a number of rising stars, we felt the time was right to broaden our Wednesday night schedule and evolve the brand,” Sam Flood, executive producer and president, production, NBC Sports and NBCSN, said in a statement.

“Fans will still see plenty of games between traditional powers, but our new approach to Wednesday nights – including a record number of doubleheaders – allows us to show more rising stars and more Western Conference and Canadian teams than ever before.”

All games will be streamed live on NBCSports.com and the NBC Sports app to authenticated users via TV Everywhere.
