3COM STADIUM -- KNOWN FOR ITS CHILLY WIND, DATA NETWORKING
Published September 5, 1995
The City of San Francisco is set to approve a deal to sell the name of Candlestick Park to 3Com, a data networking company based in Santa Clara, CA, for a reported $4M over four years, according to the S.F. EXAMINER. Rachel Gordon reports that the change will not become official until Thursday, when the city's recreation and parks commission holds a meeting to consider the proposal. Jim Lazarus, S.F.'s Dir of Special Projects, said Candlestick is likely to be renamed "3Com Stadium," but "3Com Field" and "3Com Park" are also possibilities. The 49ers will work with 3Com on joint-marketing campaigns for the stadium and split the cost of changing the name on the facility's signs. The city will reportedly receive $2M for the first year and $1M for the next two years. The money will used as part of a $26M overhaul before the '99 Super Bowl (S.F. CHRONICLE, 9/2).
