Who Will Sponsor Lincoln’s Arena?

February 10, 2009 at 2:30am By: Mr. Wilson Posted in The Lincolnite Blog

While chatting with DMB tonight I got to thinking about the possible brand names that could be slapped on the side of Lincoln’s (currently mythical) Haymarket arena. What are some of the most likely names we could see glowing in neon in a few years? I came up with a few possibilities:

  • Verizon Center. Alltel has been a major player in Nebraska for years. Now that Verizon has consumed Alltel, and thanks to Verizon’s office on I-80, Verizon seems like a natural candidate to buy naming rights here.
  • Con Agra Center. Well, really any large agricultural company is a possibility.
  • Gallup Arena. The punks may have moved up the road, but you know they still love us.
  • Ameritrade Arena. Oddly enough, the first time I ever saw (or heard of) Pete Ricketts was outside Qwest Center.

What do you think?

Anyone see in the LJS that T.O. wants to put $16M into a practice facility/renovation project? It’s been talked about, but it appears the ball is rolling on fundraising.

I wonder if that would result in a home court advantage.
