Largest Company without a Stadium?


Saint Zephyr III

Recommended Posts

With the recent change of the SBC Center to the AT&T Center after the gargutuan merging of AT&T and SBC, it got me thinking...what is the largest company that doesn't have a stadium or a sports event bearing its name? Or simply, which major companies don't have one?

I don't think Wal-Mart actually has one...or the fried-chicken franchises (KFC, Church's, Popeye's).

Wal-Mart kind of did if you count the basketball arena at Missouri. That changed fast.

If the Kentucky Colonels had been realized in the NBA (instead of the Memphis Grizzlies, iirc) the arena in Louisville was to be called the Bucket.

In fact, your have to go down to #4 in the Forbes 2000 to reach a company with stadium naming rights (Bank of America). If the are any stadia named after Citigroup, General Electric, AIG, or any subsidiaries thereof, I stand corrected.

Citigroup doesnt have a stadium that i know of, but they are the main sponsors of the Rose Bowl, so i guess you could say the Rose Bowl is citi's stadium.
