    Paywall. The Athletic looks at corporate (and individual) misdeeds that pushed for a naming change or challenge.

    Article also lists a number of (new-ish) naming right values around North America

    * Alligiant (airlines) stadium $25m/year cash/other (guessing they might be the charter airline) LV NFL
    * American Airlines plaza $90m over ten years - NFL LA
    * SoFi (financial) stadium $400m over twenty years - NFL LA (not yet announced)
    * LA Coliseum controversy resulted in “United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum”. $69m over sixteen years NCAA USC
    * T-Mobile Park $87.5m over 25 years MLB Seattle
    * Scotiabank arena $639m over 20 years NHL/NBA Toronto
    * Citi Field $400m through 2028 MLB Mets
    * Chase Center $300m over 20 years NBA Warriors
    * MetLife Stadium $400m (no duration listed) NFL Giants/Jets

    And lists a number of controversies (Enron, murder and other issues) that ended naming rights.


    Still, nice to have a decent list of naming rights $$s
