iirc stadium is just the name of the 'cheap 'replica version of the kit, then theres another name that escapes me for the actual shirt/shorts the players wear, that you can also buy, but are more expensive

I suppose it could mean "Nike Stadium" at Tottenham Hotspur but it could also mean "Nike" at Stadium Tottenham Hotspur.

Yeah, they just have stupid product names. Academy, Squad, Stadium etc.

It strongly doubt EA would see any value in investing a naming rights deal with Spurs. By comparison to EA the club is small time in terms of reach, brand awareness and engagement.

Look at it another way, what percentage of EA’s target audience has access to Premier League, Champions league or NFL but doesn’t know about FIFA or Madden? That number is so small that paying mid 8 figures per year to reach these people would be sheer idiocy.
On the other hand, they are making so much money each year, that £20m is nothing to them. Also imagine the esports possibilities of a Fifa Tournament at the EA Stadium each year.... It's definitely something I could see their marketing execs being in to.

Barca apparently close to a £355m, 20 year deal for naming rights...

That would suggest, even with London being more an entertainment hub than Barcelona, and the NFL tie-up, that Levy won’t get anywhere close to that.
It's not about location. It's a global sport and companies pay a premium to be attached to winners. Sadly we're not there yet.

There is advertising, getting your name recognised but then you have your name being associated with being the best. Which is another level.

Good shout about the esports possibilities. Esports is still just at the embryonic stage so a venue like the new WHL could be of real value with both EPL and NFL played at the stadium

Which is where Barca are different. They are apparently being sponsored by a local pharma company- (ironic when you think about the rumours about PEDS in Spain). They could easily get more money from Qatar or a large sports brand, but they aren't all about the money.

Nope their president is voted for by the members. This is more political than greed.

Just a thought, that we have a good owner who acts in the interest of the club. How many times would there have been a "no confidence" vote in Levy before now? (Theresa May faces vote today)

Good point. The thing is I think he would have been voted out as most fans are either impatient, blinkered, fickle or all three

Anyone else received the survey request from the club, looking for views on sponsors?

Could the list of companies provide a clue as to who we are in talks with over naming rights? (FYI the companies in the survey included Audi, Ford, Mercedes, AIA, Nike, Addidas, Rolex, Tag Haeur, Heineken).
