carlsberg keen on stadium name
« on: May 14, 2009, 10:16:29 pm »
MANCHESTER, England (AP) -- Liverpool's shirt sponsor Carlsberg is keen on buying the naming rights for the English club's new stadium as the brewer renegotiates its current deal, The Associated Press has learned.

The Danish beer brand's ties with the Reds stretch back to 1991, making it the Premier League's longest commercial partnership. The current contract, worth seven million pounds ($10.6 million) annually, expires at the end of the 2009-10 season.

In announcing Carlsberg's intentions to the AP, head of sponsorship Gareth Roberts indicated that his company would be monitoring the club's bid to refinance a loan of around 250 million pounds ($375 million) or potential sale and, more crucially, progress on replacing the crumbling Anfield stadium.

Crumbling? Since when? I know I have not been home for 2 years but it can't be that bad.

As for Carlsberg sponsering the stadium, no thnaks. They were going to pull out until Istanbul, so it is now time to f*ck 'em off. I'm sure Ian Ayre has some bigger, brighter brands ready to go.

Really? This is from a company who paid our shirt sponsorship not according to our marketing values. or was it due to the genius of Rick Parry in dealing with sponsors? I don't think they can't  afford it. (But then again who knows since this is a kind of recession time that many people are finding their piece at the bottom of the glass, Carlsberg may get more profits...  :((  )

as it stands (or rather doesn't...) it could be: "Liverpool don't build stadiums, but if they did, it'd probably be the best stadium in the world..."

if/when it is ever built... "Anfield, probably the best stadium in the world..."

Would people prefer a 'Carlsberg Stand' or something like 'The Carlsberg Arena' or 'The Carlsberg New Anfield'?

One way or another they'd probably get some kind of deal in the new stadium so just wondering what people would prefer. The stands would have to be renamed anyway.

Both crap to be honest. Give me Staropramen or Bitburger any day!

Anyway how about the Pissy Beer Bowl?

I'm affraid as much as we loathe the idea as long as they Yanks are here the chances are the new stadium, presuming its ever built, will have naming rights and be sponsored up to the hilt.

A couple of inacuracies in the article aswell. It was 1992 that Carlsberg began sponsoring us not 1991 and aren't the Yanks loans 350m not 250m?
