Many guesses were for predictable Birmingham companies with a strong local marketing presence. Birmingham’s Shipt, Regions Bank and Alexander Shunnarah attorney group took the top three spots in our comments section.
There Were Many Realistic Ideas:
- Magic City Stadium
- Barber’s Stadium
- Vulcan Stadium
- Pat Sullivan Stadium
- Magic City Arena
- The B’ham Bowl
Then there were these:
A few others, although unrealistic and somewhat degrading, were hilarious. A little collective dry humor never hurts, right? It’s really a shame the internet doesn’t get to decide such things.
“Larry Langford Field at Niki’s West Stadium” – Tim Sparks
“Stadium McStadiumface” – Charles B. Naumann
“Who’s Gonna Play Here Field” – Chris Carstens
“Richard Scrushy Memorial Stadium. We Have Money to Burn Stadium. At Least We Tried Stadium. Oh, You Think You Can Do a Better Job Stadium. Decent Enough For High School Football Stadium” – David Benjamin Marks
“Richard Scrushy Memorial Stadium” – Joey Butts
“The No Football Team Stadium” – Jane Archer
“Has to be named after someone who has done some hard time for corruption. Robert Bentley Arena?” – @sodeepsouth
“The BAWLS Stadium. Bell, Arrington, Woods, Langston, Shuttlesworth Stadium” – Timothy C. Carroll
“Publicly funded stadiums never generate the promised return and are, in fact, corporate welfare for rich sports team owners” field – Stefano Mugnaini
My vote? Stadium McStadiumFace. Unfortunately, I don’t have the $15 million to cover the naming rights agreement signed by Protective Life Corporation. Soooo, looks like they’ll have their name on the stadium for 15 years instead.
