Report Says Royals Set To Announce Naming Rights Deal
Reports out of Kansas City say that the Royals could announce a naming rights deal for Kauffman Stadium as early as today. The team, however, said in a statement that no agreement had been signed.
"Amid a variety of reports that the Royals were nearing an announcement today, we felt it necessary to address the situation," the team said. "Since the renovations were completed prior to the 2009 season, our organization has been open to listening to proposals with regards to a naming rights partner, but at this time no agreement has come to fruition. With that said, there is nothing else to comment on regarding naming rights."
