Dome Sponsors - 1 NAMED Possibility!

Hello FAU Football Fans!

GREAT NEWS About the Dome!!

A comment has been made regarding the progress of finance-providers for the FAU Dome … this comment has come from someone who is VERY close to the FAU Football Department - interning there under the direction of Howard Schnellenberger himself! So, here goes the scoop…

"As far as the DOME goes, so far there are two major players who are willing to pick up the entire 90mil tab, one being Seminole Gaming, the other I cant disclose. Last I heard they were arguing over naming rights and who would dictate the events that are to go on in the stadium. And as far as the retractable roof, they only looked at the feasability of making it retractable but never had any intentions of doing it, the price tag would jump from 90 to 145 mil… I have a few sources on the inside of the oxley, thats how I came about all this info, plus I used to work there. I have the artist rendering of what the dome will look like, im trying to post it, ill have it up later hopefully, image shack isnt working.

Ohh yea.. and the unfunded idea about the on/off ramp at the university… About a week or two ago the Florida Congress allocated the funds to start the planning, I think it was ten mil….. Not sure though.. But the city has no say as to what we build, the property is owned by the state government and is not classified by city standards. Originally the university commons was slated to be student appartments and when the city tried to stop the building of retail stores they were shot down becuase they did not control zoning rights of the property. The university tries to make the city happy but will go over their heads if need be."

Exciting! And the season is starting soon too! Go FAU!

For those who were wondering (like myself)…this article from late 2004 deals with some issue regarding casino sponsorship deals.

This may be the same rumor which has been floating around since April.

"A few key players but they can't agree on who handles the event scheduling inside the dome."

This is only speculation, but it may be very close to who the "undisclosed" sponsor may be.

I strongly believe it may be my company which is a part of one of the largest conglomerates in the world. I say this mainly because of a few things which will follow.

But first, I won't release my company's name, and I hope TeamBeer won't either, but here are some clues.

1. We sponsor FAU currently, and all of the NCAA.
2. Very, Very strong brand name.
3. I "tried" to set up a meeting between some big wigs at my company, but FAU was already talking with them.
4. Our HQ is in the backyard of FAU.
5. We have a lot of cash.

It would be great for either my company or the indian tribe to sponsor the dome as there would be less corporate competition as to use.

This sounds promising.

I dont think they are in a position to sponsor our Team just yet - looks like they are still digging out of a hole.

A few years ago they were suppose to sponsor the Dolphins Stadium - Tyco Field - they put up all the signs and the deal fell apart.

I think it would be great but i doubt it will happen.
