PPG Paints Arena will immediately become the name of the Pittsburgh Penguins' home under a 20-year naming rights deal announced Tuesday.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

The building has been known as Consol Energy Center since it opened in 2010. But Consol Energy is giving up the naming rights six years into a deal that was scheduled to run for 21 years.

"We are excited to extend our partnership with PPG, a top-notch global organization that makes its home here in Pittsburgh," Penguins president David Morehouse said. "We believe that the partnership will offer exciting opportunities for our fans, as well as engagement opportunities for PPG employees and customers."

PPG, a Pittsburgh-based paint company that's been in business for more than 130 years, will have a branded presence at the Penguins' primary practice and training facility, the UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex in Cranberry, Pa.
