    Thought it would be good to have a thread deicated to the Stadium Naming Rights, and the stories that will undoubtedly come out about negoitations in the over the next year and beyond.

    Interesting article from Stobart today- there is a picture of a model of the 'Uber Stadium' in the article, but I won't post it for copyright reasons:

    Uber Stadium: Tottenham hold talks with taxi app giants over £20m-a-year naming rights of new home

    EXCLUSIVE

    Tottenham Hotspur have held talks with taxi giant Uber over a £20m-a-year naming rights deal for the club’s new stadium, Squawka can reveal.

    Discussions between Spurs and Uber are understood to have first taken place in July, with the club hoping to secure a long-term naming rights partner for the new stadium, which is due to open for the start of the 2018-19 season.

    Squawka has obtained a photograph of a model of the ‘Uber Stadium’, as it would be known, featuring the transport company’s name on roof of the 61,000-seater venue.

    Tottenham are keen to partner with a globally renowned business while Uber has been expanding aggressively to cement its position as worldwide leader of the on-demand transport market via its smartphone application.

    Sources at Spurs say they have held talks with many potential naming rights partners and that a deal with Uber is unlikely at this stage due to strong interest from several financial institutions, communications companies and airlines.

    Tottenham are seeking an agreement worth between £20-25m per year for anything between six and 15 years as they look to financially secure the construction of the £400m stadium, which is being built adjacent to White Hart Lane. Spurs are hoping for a front-loaded agreement that would ease the financial strain of the project.

    The club have been talking to a number of potential naming rights partners, including the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA), the sovereign wealth fund which is looking for opportunities to associate itself with a Premier League club and is investing heavily in football ahead of the 2022 World Cup.

    Uber reportedly made a loss of $1.2 billion (£980m) in the first half of 2016 but the company is valued at a stunning $69bn (£56.5bn) just seven years after it was founded by technology entrepreneurs Travis Kalanick and Garett Camp.

    Uber has recently partnered with clubs including Olympique Lyonnais and San Jose Earthquakes – an official partner of Tottenham – to provide transport services for supporters as it looks to grows its user base. It could look to reach a similar deal with Spurs even if it does not secure the naming rights, with the club looking to agree a number of different partnerships relating to the new stadium.

    Spurs believe they are an attractive proposition thanks to the recent success of the side under manager Mauricio Pochettino and the fact they have sold out more than 85,000 tickets for three Champions League matches at Wembley this season.

    The club are also hoping to use their tie-up with the NFL to attract partners, with the new stadium set to host at least two games per season for 10 years once the stadium is complete. The venue has been designed with dedicated American Football facilities and a fully retractable pitch – and there is a hope that it could host a London-based NFL franchise in the future.

    Interesting to note that Qatar Airways will no longer be Barcelona's main sponsor from next summer, with Rakuten signing a 4-year deal.

    Like the idea of the money and no issues with an airline but the pronunciation of Qatar isn't great as I'm pretty certain it's catarrh.

    Tottenham searching for £400m naming rights deal as they battle Chelsea and West Ham for crucial stadium sponsors
    • A three-way stadium naming rights battle is developing in London
    • Tottenham, Chelsea and West Ham are all chasing key sponsors for big money
    • Spurs chairman Daniel Levy wants a 20-year, £20million-a-year deal
    • Mahindra Group failed to agree a £4.5million-a-year package with the Hammers
    By gaining planning permission this week for their new ground at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea will make it a three-way capital heavyweight contest with Tottenham and West Ham to get elusive naming rights.

    Spurs, who will finish their White Hart Lane building work at least two years ahead of Chelsea, have demanding chairman Daniel Levy looking for a long-term deal worth more than double Arsenal's £150million Emirates Stadium contract in 2012 that included a shirt sponsorship.

    Ideally, Levy wants a 20-year agreement worth £20m annually, knowing how difficult it would be to re-name a UK stadium for a second time, and there is talk of possible Chinese investment.

    I was working in Tottenham yesterday and my clutch went a 100 yards from Park Lane :whistle: I had to wait 6 hours for recovery so apart from buying a shed load from the Spurs shop, I thought I would use my time by nosing around a bit. Firstly I went to a café in Park lane and had a chat with the owner who told me they have 4 months to get out, but are appealing. (a bit late me thinks) I also managed to collar one of the foreman knocking about and he reckons they are a couple of weeks ahead of time and that they have pulled specialists and other workers from other projects to make sure they get this finished. I assume he meant Mace. They are under immense pressure to finish on time cos of swinging penalties if they don't.

    OOPS meant to put this in the stadium thread if a mod can remove and put in there please?
