The FAU Arena is being renamed the RoofClaim.com Arena after CEO Brian Wedding partnered with FAU Athletics on a $5 million, 10 year sponsorship to name the basketball and volleyball arena after the roofing service website.


“We are tremendously excited to partner with Brian Wedding and RoofClaim.com,” said Vice President and Director of Athletics Brian White in a press release. “This partnership is transformational for our student-athletes and fans, as well as the community. We are thrilled about the opportunities provided to FAU and our athletics department from this investment.”



Back in June, FAU previously worked with the Rocco and Mary Abessinio Foundation after they gave a $3 million donation for the naming rights.


“I am very excited about the growth and vision of Florida Atlantic University, under the direction of President Kelly and Director of Athletics Brian White,” Wedding said. “There is a lot of synergy between FAU and RoofClaim.com.  We are both working to help those in the South Florida region, as well as expand the student and fan experience. I look forward to raising a championship trophy with FAU one day.”


According to the press release, Roofclaim.com “is a technology service company specializing in the diagnosing and processing of shingle and tile roof replacement insurance claims through the use of cutting-edge technology, and industry leading processes.”


The Owls next home game will be against UTSA on Jan. 2 as the schedule goes into conference play.
