The Chiefs better not be serious about renaming Arrowhead Stadium. If they are, they better at least change it to something like Sprint at Arrowhead Stadium or some shit. They best not mess with the namesake! From Biz Journals:
Kansas City Chiefs officials hope to score 12 to 14 new big sponsors by the time renovations to Arrowhead Stadium are completed.
New opportunities include stadium and practice facility naming rights, and sponsorships for each stadium quadrant. An LED screen ringing the inside of the stadium will provide ad sales opportunities, and new and renovated suites and club-level seating will provide new corporate partnership opportunities.
“We absolutely need to create a spike in our revenue,” said Tammy Fruits, the Chiefs’ vice president of sales and marketing.
The Chiefs had 2007 revenue of $196 million, ranking 15th of 32 National Football League teams, according to Forbes. That’s up 5.4 percent from $186 million in 2006.
If Tammy Fruits (by the way, that is an atrocious name…almost like a bad porn name) wants to spike revenue, she needs to tell King Carl to bring in a quarterback who can actually stay on the field win a game fill the seats. Whoever that might be (grinning ear to ear)?
