What Will Be the Last Major Sports Venue NOT To Have Naming Rights?

Yankee Stadium is gone, Shea Stadium is going...nobody wants to pay for naming rights to something really old, with a really well-established name that people might keep using, instead of adopting the new name (BigCo Park, Amalgamated Products FieldHouse, etc). They want to slap their names on shiny, new facilities. Maybe Lambeau field will be the last?

  1. The Packers and the City of Green Bay have agreed (in 2003) to sell naming rights to Lambeau (and split the proceeds), if they get a bid for rights of at least $100M. A bidder has not been found yet.
