Want to get your name on the Stadium?

Andrew Barr has announced he’s looking for a naming rights sponsor for Canberra Stadium.

This has been buzzing around town for weeks now and puzzling us here in the Eagle’s Nest as we thought they’d been searching for a sponsor since they ditched the “Bruce Stadium” name in the long long ago.

But here’s what Andrew has to say:

The ACT Government is seeking a naming rights sponsor for Canberra Stadium with a minimum commitment of five to 10 years.? ?

The sponsorship fee paid by the naming rights sponsor will defray some of the current maintenance and upgrade costs of up to $2 million a year and assist with the Government’s medium-term plans to radically improve the stadium with a $70 million overhaul over the next decade.? ? The ideal naming rights sponsor will:

— be one who’s corporate values align with the values of the ACT Government and the Canberra Community;
— be a publicly listed or local company that wishes to make a strong positive impact on the Canberra and/or national market;
— not be a direct competitor of our major hirers – the Brumbies and Raiders.

Some political product placement… Gallagher Stadium perhaps?
Only problem is whether there’s enough neon in the world for supplementary signage telling people how to say her name.

oh yes, our electricity, gas and water bills will go up so we can feel warm and fuzzy that the stadium has ACTEW painted on the side. God bless you ACTEW

Canberra Airport Stadium? The stands can be converted to offices with more offices built in the end goals and Manuka Oval could then close due to its proximity to the flightpath.

I’m tipping it will end up as ACTEWAGL Stadium.

White elephant?

Let’s just hope it isn’t called BetFair Stadium or VB Stadium. Come to think about it, this naming rights nonsense seems confined to Australia. The US is happy to have names like Yankee Stadium, the UK has Cardiff Arms Park, and across the ditch the Warriors play their home games at Mt Eden Stadium.

So ‘Stanhope Stadium’ is off the agenda?

“not be a direct competitor of our major hirers – the Brumbies and Raiders.”

That’s a shame, AFL Park or GWS Arena have a nice sound to them, haha.

Given the form of the two local teams this year perhaps now is not a great time to be seeking such sponsorship.

So Adam & Eve Stadium then?

Like. Though maybe Sexytime Stadium would be even better… just watch for spectators who keep their hands in their pockets, even during the non-Winter matches…

Why don’t they just ask Bruce to sponsor it again?
