Baseball naming rights are always bigger than football just because of the home games involved.

it doesn't sound intimidating....like Quest Field, or Oracle Area, or Gillette Stadium....orr...Soldier Field...

None of those sound intimidating to me. Especially Soldier Field, which brings in zero dollars for the bears.

sorry, those bolded are names I simply don't find "intimidating"

Gillette...intimidating? gtfo

Yeah, we were once called "Monster Park" how did that work out for the team.

Looks right to me. There are new stadiums in the NFL that haven't even been able to find a buyer for the naming rights, so they did pretty good, IMO.

I would think most major sports stadiums have some kind of naming rights deal.

Most do. Who's the company giving hundreds of millions to jerry jones for naming rights?

He's probably referring specifically to Cowboys Stadium, which has yet to find a sponsor 4 years after opening

Levi Stadium naming rights deal w avg of $11M/yr is far less than deals for Farmers, MetLife, Citi, each ~$20M/yr

Metlife is $17.5 mill a year, and that covers 2 teams. What's Citi's and Farmers' stadiums?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citi_Field#Naming_rights

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farmers_Field

A baseball stadium and a stadium that isn't getting built don't really compare, IMO.

Beat me to it.

FYI, Qwest Field in Seattle has been named CenturyLink Stadium since June of 2011 when Qwest was acquired by CenturyLink.

I was hoping for The Zipper personally, I wonder what it'll be nicknamed...no ones calling it "Levi's" that's for sure...


I am sure in time the fans will make up some sort of a nickname. I can see people calling it "The Jeans". Can you imagine that ? "Are you going to The Jeans to watch the game this Sunday ?" Sounds kind of cool actually.
Im sorry guys but I would rather have a great football team than have a cool stadium name.
Just call it the big zipper
