Hmm... and the Trust say that succession may be only weeks away! Why would any company wishing to take over CUFC want another company to have their name plastered all over it? How about the Mike Ashley Arena.
Oh did I tell you, I might be weeks away from winning the lottery, perhaps I should buy a ticket.
Surely firms want associated with shiny new brand spanking stadiums (brand spanking as in new, not some NS S&M fetish club thing)
Would a firm want to name something that's falling to bits after itself? Or is this a wheeze to get rid of some debt? Edinburgh Wooly Mills (2021) Stadium?
I think you are rather missing the point of sponsorship Kessler. The idea is the person who pays the money chooses the name, providing the club agrees it's suitable. I think your ideas fail on all counts.
orfc has hit the nail on the head in a round about way - stadium naming rights have a fairly limited level of appeal in terms of money for existing grounds, because the firms know that most fans will always refer to it by it's traditional name. Can still bring some money in but it won't be huge amounts.
The best time to sell stadium name sponsorship is when you've got a brand spanking new one. Best example of this is Bolton - how many people still refer to it as "The Reebok"?
No real issue with stands being sponsored but not a massive fan of the stadium one.
all about money as usual.
Would you sue your football club?Remember it’s season ticket money that would fund the defence.
Or if the supporters raised money and called it the director is a fat bunt stadium
