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.
