MIAMI (AP) — Miami-Dade County has asked a federal bankruptcy court for immediate permission to strip the FTX name off the arena where the Miami Heat play. The county filed a motion Tuesday. It argues that continuing to refer to the building as FTX Arena will only add to the “enduring hardships” brought on by the collapse of the cryptocurrency exchange. A hearing is set for mid-December. Miami-Dade County owns the arena and negotiated the naming rights deal with FTX.
