The Clippers, who will break ground on Friday on the construction of their new Inglewood arena, announced in a press release that the building has a naming right sponsor. The franchise has partnered with Intuit Inc., a technology platform that specializes in financial software, and the new arena will be called the Intuit Dome.
The Clippers currently share the Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles with both the Lakers and the NHL’s Los Angeles Kings, but the organization has been working for years to establish its own home in nearby Inglewood.
The new building, which will be privately funded and will cost an estimated $1.8 billion to build, is currently on track to open for the 2024/25 season. It will include the team’s practice facility and offices for business and basketball operations.
As Tim Reynolds of The Associated Press details, Clippers owner Steve Ballmer believes the arena will be like no other building in the NBA, calling it a “basketball mecca.” It will feature a halo video screen over the court that features 44,000 square feet of LED lighting, making it about six times the size of most other big screens in NBA arena, Reynolds writes.
The Clippers have launched a new section of their website dedicated to the arena, releasing a hype video that shows what both the inside and outside of the building will look like (images via Tomer Azarly of Clutch Points).

I’m so glad Clippers will out of Staples Center, New Home is called Intuit Dome.
And the lockerroom will be the Donald Sterling exhibition area.
3.5 years to build? In LA? Are they expecting record snowfall? LOL. seriously the 405 will become the parking lot.
Good for them.Now lakers fans can stop b*tching about sharing arenas
The Lakers were going to switch arenas with them but they didn’t want to get Intuit
How was the game? It was okay. I wasn’t that Intuit
It isnt a catchy name, like the staples center, or the garden, or the oracle arena. or MSG. The name Intuit dome, maybe if the clippers can win their 1st ring, people will get used to that name.
So now corporate names are being sold years before a building is even built? Well at least they got the important thing taken care of.
Well, at least it’s privately funded.
There is no such thing as “privately funded” money. Where do you think all of that “private money” comes from? It comes from the public in some shape or form.
At first I thought it said Inuit, so a more appropriate name would be the Inuit Igloo.
They should have kept Beverly; he gets pretty Intuit. My intuition says that instead, they will feature the leader of load management Leonard.
I wish these soulless corporations would make the name something cool for once, as all their company names are all the worst of all time and sound terrible to say out loud when talking about a stadium. Why not name it “Champions Arena in Los Angeles” or something??
Because the Clippers have never been champions.
That would be false advertising.
