    Goodbye Safeco Field, Hello 'T-Mobile Park' as Mariners announce stadium naming rights


    [​IMG]

    What should Seattle Center Arena be called? Amazon Arena? Microsoft Center? Expedia Forum?

    Does T-Mobile give perks to its customers that utilize the Arena down there? There will be perks for T-mobile customers at the baseball field.

    Alaska already has the UW basketball arena AND Football stadium that it sponsors. Might be a bit over saturated.

    Yeah, T-Mobile people get their own entrance and presale stuff at T-Mobile Arena. Seems fairly similar, though there's a lot more entrances to Safeco than there are at T-MA, so it might not be as useful.

    Alaska having all the UW stuff is why I figured Alaska would get into it, if only to keep Delta's name off of it assuming their little Battle for Seattle is continuing.

    I'm quietly hoping it's come to be known as the Amazon. It kind of fits with our region's temperate rainforest environment.

    Yep. Welcome to the Jungle is generally overplayed, but if it has a little extra meaning behind it I'm okay with that playing either when the teams take the ice or when the puck's about to drop.

    It’s probably gonna be a brand that’s is not the first thing in mind when people think of Seattle. When Niners got their new stadium they named it after Levi instead of tech company.

    Valve Arena ? Steam Arena ? Half Life 3 Arena would draw attention from geeks wanting a HL3 to be made

    Costco doesn't advertise to non-members. It's how they "keep prices low." :laugh:

    I just want the Mascot to be a guy who looks like Kurt Cobain & dresses like him too.
    Cause then people can show up to games dressed up in grunge era clothing & have mosh pits in the crowd:

    Amazon Arena/Center/Place would likely be my pick. But it makes me wonder if Amazon goes for it.

    But also don't like when multiple NHL teams have seemingly similar arena names. Rogers Arena and Rogers Place, Scotiabank Sattledome and Scotiabank Arena, Bell Arena and Centre Bell and Bell MTS Place. T-Mobile is going that same route.

    Has anyone here even been to Seattle? Boeing is a huge huge company across USA. There biggest location is in Seattle.

    Boeing Arena makes the most sense out of all of your guesses. Just my opinion as I went to school in Seattle for 4 years. That Boeing aircraft plant is absolutely massive.

    It's not really a consumer company though, doesn't make sense for them to get their name out in front of an international audience unless there's an airline competition or military spending conference regularly taking place in the arena for some reason.

    It would be like a crane company putting their name on an arena, sure Liebherr is a big crane company, but nobody that's watching hockey will get swayed to move to their crane company like they would a cell phone company/bank/airline/etc.

    Boeing isn't a local company either anymore since they moved their HQ out of Washington state. OVG may want to go with a local company.

    I'm guessing OVG will go with whoever pays the most. T-Mobile being in Bellevue likely just worked out that way.
