Allentown Arena Complex Named PPL Center; Now, Bring On Major League Soccer

atownmlsOnce the Phantoms are proven to be a successful commodity in Allentown, the Queen City needs to get moving on acquiring an MLS franchise.  With today’s announcement that PPL Corp. has purchased the naming rights to the Phantoms’ home arena and event center, let’s help PPL name another soccer stadium in Pennsylvania…this one much closer to home.  Thank you, General Trexler.

What to call an MLS team in Allentown?  Some suggestions:

The Lehigh Valley Queen City Kings

The Allentown Americas (sometimes styled as Las Americas)

The Allentown Metropolitans

The Allentown Generals

Pennsylvania Power and Light.

Like the idea?  Like it on facebook, too.

    Las Americas would drive the newspaper commenter set crazy, but I would love it

    Agree on both counts.
