5 Possible Minnesota Fortune 500 Companies That Could buy the Naming Rights for the new Vikings Stadium [PHOTOS]
Minnesota has nineteen 'Fortune 500' companies and there is a good chance that one of them will pay millions of dollars per year for the naming rights on the new Vikings stadium in downtown Minneapolis. Target already has Target Center and Target Field, so I would be surprised if they went for a third. Best Buy is going through some tough financial and management issues, so I doubt they'll be in the mix. Here are five Minnesota companies that have a good shot of having the new stadium named after them.
3M Post-It Note Stadium
The Vikings will "stick it" to many opponents in the 3M Post-It Note Stadium form one of Minnesota's largest companies.
The Land O'Lakes Butter Dome
Imagine 'Monday Night Football' live from the ButterDome?! Land O'Lakes I hope you're paying attention, that glory could all be yours.
Alliant Techsystems ATK Boom Boom Stadium
Alliant Techsystems or ATK is one of the largest aerospace and defense companies in the United States with more than 18,000 employees in 22 states and it's based here in Minnesota. Just picture how cool the pyrotechnics would be for the lineup introduction, I'm all for this explosive stadium idea. USA, USA, USA...
General Mills Cereal Field
This would be perfect for early morning tailgating, free breakfast for everyone. General Mills could tie in multiple brands into this naming sponsorship, think about it, the Pillsbury Doughboy Pre-game Plaza or the Hamburger Helper Halftime Hut maybe?
Hormel SPAM Stadium
And the best idea, the one I'm sure we can all get behind, the Hormel SPAM Stadium, I can smell it already. Complete with a SPAM slide for your pre-game fun, this stadium will be enjoyed and be a source of pride for generations to come.
