New Houston stadium gets corporate sponsor

Zeke Riser

In this day and age, having a corporate sponsor attached to a new stadium is almost mandatory. It is essentially free money for a team or school. There are some relics out there today at the bluebloods o college football with no corporate sponsorships, but if a new stadium is being constructed the odds are very good there will be a sponsorship attached to the name.

Such is the case at the University of Houston, where today it was made official the naming rights to the stadium have been sold to¬†Texas Dow Employees Credit Union. The name of Houston’s new football stadium will be TDECU Stadium. Doesn’t that just roll right off the tip of your tongue?

The new stadium name was originally reported by The Houston Chronicle and made official during an afternoon press conference.

    Rolls off the tongue about as well as UFCU Disch-Falk Field. But I didn’t see the University of Texas turning down credit union money, did you?

    What? The members of that credit union need to get rid of the Board if Directors. Talk about a waste of money!

    Now, anyone that goes to this venue is eligible to join the Credit Union. Can you say “marketing?”

    So what do we nickname the stadium now?

    The “Credit Union”?

    The “Teller Line”?
