Walmart would be a strange one considering the Kroenke link to them.
Agreed although there would be enough segregation to avoid conflict of interest one suspects in that family.

I'd like someone like Nvidia which would be a cool link up and look to heavily promote eSports at the stadium although this kind of follows on from the Google links last year.

Suspect ultimately it'll be an AIA equivalent.

Unless they are expanding into the UK then not sure why they would necessarily unless it's ASDA who are owned by Walmart.
Nobody is paying the amount DL wants if their focus is only to develop into the UK market.

Edit: to clarify, this would be a global play which football is almost uniquely able to give.

As long as it isnt something shit and something the media and other fans will laugh at us for I'm not too bothered.
I mean this in the NICEST way possible.. who the hell cares what others think if ends up being a good thing for us? Need to get out of that mindset of "but everyone will laugh at us.". Honestly if you're not used to it by now you never will be.

Agree with this. And particularly strange when the words of one of the longest standing Spurs songs is "We don't care what the other teams say".

I like how people thought they could laugh at us because our stadium is shaped a bit like a toilet bowl. Until they realised its the best stadium in the world.

and Bolton fans don't really care about the mocking of their "Toughsheet Stadium" when the money is giving them the ability to compete at the top of the league.

I knew someone would say that. I'm pretty sick of us being the joke club. It might be ok for you, for us to be laughed at, but some of us want the club to be respected.

As long as we're in engaging in idle speculation, this is one kind of makes sense to me. Here in the States they have naming rights to the warriors the Warriors (NBA) and Diamondbacks (MLB) stadiums, and they've been pretty aggressive with opening retail branches across the country in areas that they didn't formerly serve. It looks like they launched in the UK two years ago.

They also have some of the most widely used credit cards over here, targeting professional-types with business/leisure travel perks. With the new stadium being 100% cashless, I could see some sort of tie in being appealing for them.

They have also been advertising a fair bit recently here in the UK as an online bank and I think that's a new thing

Who cares if we're the joke club? We're so irrelevant they all keep mentioning us any way. You will feel much better if you ignore what others say and deem it as "banter". Trust me. We were laughed at for appointing an Australian who managed Celtic. Seems to be doing alright. Paratici got banned, he's still doing a bang up job as far as I can tell in his consultancy role. Kane spoke about us then Luis Garcia defended the club.

We'll be respected by those that matter. Fans and plenty of those within the media do not. I much prefer us as a club currently than let's say Manchester United, Chelsea and Newcastle United. We don't have a bat***t manager like Arteta talking about his 434 formations a game. We don't have highly emotional Jurgen Klopp running up and down the touchline getting in officials faces.

Anyways, naming rights.

We've only recently announced AstroPay as our official payment partner so I don't see Chase/VISA et al sponsoring naming rights.

The itk also said it might not be Spurs.

Would be funny (in y'know....an unfunny kind of way) if all this turned out to be itk for Everton's new stadium or something. :shifty:
I heard It's Chelsea and shirts. Fuck knows who or what really, but i'd bet my last slice of Victoria Sponge that it's not us. It never is when these rumours surface :D

There must be a commercial reason for not having any naming rights , some company somewhere would have stumped up a load of sponsorship by now, hope someone asks Levy at the fan forum.
