The Atlanta Hawks and State Farm say Philips Arena will be renamed for State Farm after a $193M renovation.

The renovated arena opens in October.

A press release states that the arena will now feature the third-largest center-hung scoreboard in the NBA, new seating, Killer Mike’s SWAG Shop (a 4-chair barbershop overlooking the court) and the NBA’s first courtside bar.

The arena will host a ‘Welcome to the Neighborhood” open house party on October 20th.
