FootballScoop’s $40 million bid to become the official naming rights holder for Husky Stadium was rejected over the weekend.
We thought “FootballScoop Field at Husky Stadium” had a good ring to it.
Unfortunately, the University of Washington is asking for $50 million for the naming rights to the soon-to-be renovated Husky Stadium. The renovation will be complete for the start of the 2013 season.
Washington senior associate AD Jennifer Cohen told the Seattle-Times, “There have definitely been some families that have had some questions about it, some interest, some people that have the capacity to do something like that."
Why the price of $50 million?
It goes in line with the university’s policy that naming rights need to bring in 50% of the overall cost of any structure on campus.
The football operations building is also selling its naming rights for a cool $10 million.
Pony your ass up, Starbucks.
