Tottenham in talks with controversial company over stadium naming rights

Posted by

Tottenham are in talks with transportation company Uber over a big-money deal for their new stadium’s naming rights, according to Squawka.

Squawka report that Spurs are in the hunt for a naming rights partner for their new stadium which is due to open in 2018.

They understand that the club held talks with Uber in July with the discussed figure believed to be a whopping £20 million a season.

Uber have been the subject of plenty of controversy in the past, with the BBC considering both the legality and safety of the company’s methods.

The BBC do note, though, that the company is worth an eye-watering £33 billion. Uber’s astronomical value means it is more than plausible that they could bankroll a lucrative sponsorship deal with Tottenham.

Squawka believe that the North London club is looking to go into business with a “globally renowned business”. As reported by the BBC, Uber now operate in 60 countries across the world, so they would definitely meet that criteria.

There would likely be a backlash among the Spurs faithful if White Hart Lane was scrapped for something along the lines of ‘The Uber Arena’.
