Crazy New Venue Name


Recommended Posts

I had to share this with LPLive - this is too funny. Venues get renamed all the time and usually people are like "Dang, the new name sucks" or something similar, and refer to the venue in the future with the old name.

 

But this name change was too funny to just pass up and ignore. The Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa, Florida (where LP has held Projekt Revolution in 2004, 2007 and 2008, and where 'Wish' off of the LPU 4.0 CD came from) has been renamed to....

Quick google search found some horrible ones. lol.

 

 

20. The Norva (Norfolk, Virginia)

Reminds me of a Seinfeld episode, “Mulva!”

19. Crocodile Rock (Allentown, Pennslyvania)

Don’t ever name your venue after a cheesy Elton John song (ever!).

18. iPayOne Center (San Diego, California)

Dotcom venue sponsorships often don’t work.

17. Benedum Center (Pittsburgh, Pennslyvania)

Just sounds boring.

16. Minute Maid Park (Houston, Texas)

I liked it better when it was Enron FIeld.

15. University of Phoenix Stadium (Glendale, Arizona)

Online college has nothing to do with City of Phoenix.

14. Petco Park (San Diego, California)

Goofy name, but it keeps growing on me.

13. Mellon Arena (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)

Not named for Thornton Melon.

12. Whataburger Field (Corpus Christi, Texas)

Great burgers, weird name for a stadium.

11. Littlejohn Coliseum (Clemson, South Carolina)

Venues shouldn’t be named after Robin Hood characters.

10. Quicken Loans Arena (Cleveland, Ohio)

Corporate naming rights gone wrong.

9. Papa Johns Stadium (Louisville, Kentucky)

Fast food companies after second worst after dotcom companies.

8. Taco Bell Arena (Boise, Idaho)

I wonder how often they play the “Doooooooooooooong”?

7. Energy Solutions Center (Salt Lake City, Utah)

They could jazz up the place with a great nickname like the Power Palace.

6. Dunkin Donuts Center (Providence, Rhode Island)

Time to make the donuts.

5. Superpages.com Center (Dallas, Texas)

Drop the .com and it goes from horrible to just plain bad.

4. Glass Bowl Stadium (Toledo, Ohio)

The best of the worst, my favorite bad name venue.

3. Amway Center (Orlando, Florida)

For every ticket you buy, you have to sell 6 more to friends.

2. Bagley Field at Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium (Greenville, South Carolina)

The Fick rocks! I’m sure they were all great people, but the combination is horrendous.

1. Jobing.com Arena (Glendale, Arizona)

The worst possible dotcom name they could put on a venue.

Funny thing about Mellon Arena.

 

1. It was closed down recently

2. My grandfather used to be the C.E.O. of Mellon Bank.

 

A new venue name change (in my hometown).

 

The legendary "Nissan Pavilion" in Washington DC has been renamed to "Jiffy Lube Live".

 

Fucking sucks. <_<

never have i been more excited for an arena closing, i hated traveling to pitt for games(im a flyers fan), that arena stunk. The wachovia, soon to be wells fargo center, was at one time the First Union center...aka the F U center. Very fitting for most of philly

same here our rugby stadium was called Newlands Stadium and was full of tradition then the indians came and now its called Sahara Park Newlands. Just doesn't sound right...

But since our useless government is too corrupt to subsidize the upkeep stadiums have to find sponsors
