ST. LOUIS AWAITS RAMS MOVE BEFORE ISSUING DOME NAMING RIGHTS
Published October 27, 1994
St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission (CVC) President Bob Bedell said that the commission will wait for a decision by the Rams about moving to St. Louis before they award a corporation with naming rights to the new dome. It is currently unknown which party would receive any stadium naming rights money -- CVC, FANS Inc. or the St. Louis Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, which owns and is constructing the building. Bedell argues that any future naming rights revenues should help meet the CVC's operating expenses: "CVC has more at stake financially than anybody else." But FANS -- the non-profit group attempting to lure the Rams to St. Louis -- maintains they need the money to meet the Rams' wish list items of between $60-90M (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 10/27).
