KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- KMBC has learned that the Chiefs are starting to shop around the naming rights for Arrowhead Stadium.

In the new lease deal, the Chiefs and the Royals gained control over their stadium naming rights and would get to keep all funds from any sale.

KMBC's Micheal Mahoney reported that the Chiefs appear to be in the initial stages of checking to see whether any company is interested in buying the naming rights.


The Chiefs confirmed that they have retained a company to help them look for a potential buyer.

"I would guess that both (the Chiefs and the Royals) are entertaining the possibility of naming rights," said Jim Rowland, executive director of the Jackson County Sports Authority.

Mahoney reported that the name of an NFL stadium is probably worth several million dollars a year. For example, Sprint is paying $2.5 million a year for the new downtown arena for 25 years, and the arena doesn't have a team yet.

Rowland said the teams would take the issue of naming rights seriously.

"Both teams are certainly aware of the brand identity they've developed with Arrowhead Stadium and Kaffuman stadium. And I know the Royals are certainly sensitive and protective of the Kauffman name," Rowland said.

Mahoney reported that selling the naming rights is probably not the No. 1 priority for either team -- they're both preparing for the large-scale renovations voters approved last year.

If it's Commerce Bank Field at Kauffman Stadium I don't see the big deal. The name tribute is still there. It will just amount to a lucrative deal for stadium signage.

3, 4, $5 million a year for the Royals would help buy us a player we could use...

Despite the title of the thread, nothing posted there actually backs up the statement that Lamar said not to change the name. It looks like that quote from Jack Steadman was misinterpted.

Lamar talked about the naming rights himself back before the vote on the rolling roof. He said if a sponsor came along, he wanted to keep the Arrowhead name like they kept Mile High in Denver.

Lamar was well-aware that the naming rights would have to be sold one day, and that e-mail to Clark is pathetic. Like anyone on this board understands Lamar's wishes better than his own son does?

I like the idea, but using curse words will practically ensure that it wont reach Clark Hunt. Hell Bob Gretz probably screens them. Be more eloquent in telling him to **** off :D

That is really crappy if that was Lamar's wish. He is choosing $ over the dying wishes of his father who was also a great man. Why couldn't he be more cold in regards to the employment of one Carl Peterson.

Mile High Mania
02-09-2007, 06:22 AM
You know what... years after Denver sold the rights to Invesco, I can't say that it bothers me much. I still say "Mile High" and rarely ever utter the word Invesco. Most of my friends are the same way... the only time I notice it is from you guys or on the signage obviously, but it really doesn't register with me like I thought it would.

I had feelings similar to many of you when Denver did this... but in retrospect, it hasn't really changed much for me.

Granted, I don't live there and I don't have season tickets... so I don't see it as much. Maybe that has something to do with it, I dunno.

Naming rights are inevitable.

In keeping with the organization's pattern of top-notch success, whoever buys the naming rights will likely file for bankruptcy within 2 years of signing the deal and the Chiefs will only see a fraction of the money.

If they wanted to generate additional revenue, they should have played hardball with the NFLPA. I don't have a huge problem with players making a lot of money, but the 8 figure contracts are just ridiculous. It makes it really hard to be a fan of the sport these days.

Eventually I see myself ditching the whole pro-sport concept. Money has literally ruined the sport for me.

I agree, there's definitely a problem when a rookie can be the highest-paid player in the league at his position. That's why I'm disturbed by the fact that the NFL is starting to tinker with controlling the broadcasts themselves, I forsee the fan who just wants to watch the games on TV being the next one getting squeezed.

I couldn't agree more. I would rather walk out of H&R Block stadium a winner than Arrowhead a loser. If Clark lines his pockets with the cash then I'll change my tune.

If it makes the Chiefs more competitive then I'm all for it. The NFL is inches away from putting NASCAR/Soccer advertising patches all over their unis as it is with so many commercials.

The rebuilt Arrowhead will not give the Chiefs the money to be a top 10 revenue generator. If you wanna play, you gotta pay.

I also hope Clark is behind this. We won when Lamar was a trailblazer. We lost when he was flying coach, being nice, and accepting the status quo.

So much for loyality and the love of the game. F**king idiots are now f**king filthy greedy, and they just can't seem to get enough of the f**king money, that they'll just decide to sell the naming rights.

F**k that shit.

If they rename the stadium and the additional revenue lands Asante Samuel then I don't care what the name of the stadium is. They will never change the Arrowhead sign on the backside of the scoreboard.

We are a capitalist society. The NFL is cut throat. In the famous words of Gordon Gecko, "Greed is Good."

That is total BS. Allowing any kind of naming rights to either stadium is an insult to Lamar Hunt and the fans and should require the shooting of anyone associatied with the deal. I swear if they change the name noone can ever refer to it as whatever corporation Stadium and we should kick anyones ass who does.
