Atlanta Braves to reveal new name of their stadium
It's official - SunTrust Park is now Truist Park.
The Atlanta Braves and members from SunTrust - now Truist - made the name change official during a ceremony Tuesday morning, when they unveiled signage
that would be used around the park.
The rename comes after the completion of the merger between BB&T and SunTrust in December 2019.
SunTrust just recently unveiled the new look for Truist: a monogram made up of two T's that mirror the Truist name and represent Touch + Technology, they said.
Truist Purple, the defining color of the new brand, is the combination of heritage BB&T burgundy and SunTrust blue, they said.
BB&T and SunTrust announced the name of their new merged banking conglomerate back over the summer.
Back then, responses from people at the Battery - where the ballpark is - ranged from "I like it. I think it's nice," to "Uhhh…it's a little dorky, not gonna lie. But whatever, that's the name of the bank."
SunTrust originally purchased the naming rights for a reported $10 million-a-year for 25 years.
