What is the purpose of CenturyLink

Seattle stadium is now called Lumen Field

With the rebranding of CenturyLink, the stadium in Seattle is also given a new name. Since yesterday, the Seattle Seahawks venue has been called Lumen Field, and the naming rights are valid until 2033.

The stadium now has a long partnership with CenturyLink and Lumen Technologies. Although the arena was still called Seahawks Stadium when it opened in 2002, the name was changed to Qwest Field just two years later. In 2011 CenturyLink bought Qwest, and accordingly the stadium name was CenturyLink Field. In September of this year, the telecommunications and data company then decided to rebrand, including changing its name to Lumen Technologies.

This ushers in a new era for Seahawks President Chuck Arnold. He emphasized the importance of the stadium to the Seattle community, with all the victories, traditions and memorable moments the venue has amassed over the past nearly twenty years. Lumen Technologies would like to build on this legacy.

The partner was also pleased about the further cooperation. For Shaun Andrews, Chief Marketing Officer at Lumen Technologies, it's about more than just a name change. The intensified partnership and shared vision for data and technology with the purpose of advancing human progress is also included in the new contract. The stadium is an iconic symbol for Seahawks fans, and Lumen Technologies is proud to be associated with the arena. The company aims to contribute to the success and support of the Seattle community.

The new contract also includes the stadium's multifunctional event center, which will now be called the Lumen Field Event Center. At the home game against the Arizona Cardinals, the name was successfully inaugurated, the Seattle Seahawks won 28-21. The replacement of the signs in the stadium is already under way and should be completed in the next few months.

In addition to the Seattle Seahawks, Lumen Field is also home to the Seattle Sounders football club. The stadium has 72,000 seats and is not only the host of sporting events, but is also always used for concerts by big music stars. (Stadionwelt, November 20, 2020)
