Stadium Naming Rights

According to

ERROR: A link was posted here (url) but it appears to be a broken link.

http://www.fau.edu/stadium/gifts.html, the naming rights to the on-campus stadium are still up for grabs. And unless someone finds a spare $20M lying around, it shall remain nameless for it inaugural season.

This brings up two points:

  1. Is FAU close to finding someone to sponsor the stadium?
  2. What will the stadium be called until it does get sponsored?

1) I still think Hooters should do it, it's a perfect fit!

2) If there is no name informally I say we call it "The Owl's Nest"

I think Hooters would be great. I also like Wise potato chips (owl logo on bag); as I recall, Wise used to sponsor something at St. John's.

I like any company willing to give the money!

As a side:  I think they should call the student section: The Island.  It is off by itself surrounded by Football in Paradise.  It looks great for a student section…they will have their own Island.  That is going to be a blast for them.

Re: Stadium Naming Rights

I'll solidify the vote for Hooters to come in and buy the name.  That would just be awesome, then the new "Home of the original Hooters girls" shirts FAU has could be the official stadium gameday t-shirt.  But, in the mean time I think I'll call it "Howard's House".

I like the idea of naming the student section the island.  They could hand out lei's or something as you enter it.  I'm soooo jealous. 

FAU - We got Bowls!

Maybe Tootsie Pops would be interested. The used to have the wise old owl that would tell you how many lick it took to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Re: Stadium Naming Rights

Hard for me to believe a financial institution wouldn't drop $1m a year (pennies to them) to have more publicity in Boca Raton  ???

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

I heard at one time that a financial institution was interested in the naming rights, but I guess that fell though
