This just in! The Arizona Cardinals just announced this morning that their stadium, University Of Phoenix Stadium, is now getitng a new name! It will now be called State Farm Stadium!
“We were intent on finding a relationship that was an ideal fit with our organization and this community in terms of values, priorities and culture,” Cardinals president Michael Bidwill said. “With State Farm, we absolutely did that. While this is a comprehensive marketing agreement, there will be a major focus on community programs that will have a positive impact across our state. State Farm is one of the most-respected and recognizable brands in the world and Phoenix is fortunate to be one of its three hub markets.”
“State Farm is committed to making a difference and so are the Arizona Cardinals," said State Farm chairman and chief executive officer Michael Tipsord. "Working with them gives us the chance to build even stronger communities in Arizona and helps us build our brand nationally.”
The new name might take a while to get used to the Arizona Cardinals will be the same team and will be at the same place so at least not too many changes!
