Karl Malone and John Stockton are long gone but the Delta Center is coming back to Salt Lake City.

The Utah Jazz announced Saturday that Vivint Arena will return to its original name on July 1.

The 18,206-seat venue was known as the Delta Center from 1991-2006 before being rebranded as EnergySolutions Arena (2006-15), Vivint Smart Home Arena (2015-20) and finally Vivint Arena.

Financial details of the new multi-year partnership with Delta Air Lines were not disclosed.

“Today we celebrate a new chapter in the longstanding history between Delta, the Utah Jazz and the Salt Lake City community,” Delta CEO Ed Bastian said. “The homecoming of the Delta Center represents a continued investment and dedication to Salt Lake City, and together we will provide a leading sports and entertainment experience to the city and Jazz fans worldwide.”

The Jazz will celebrate their 50th NBA season in 2023-24.
