CITY OF IRVING LOOKS TO JERRY JONES FOR SOME REVENUE SHARING
Published November 9, 1995
NFL owners aren't the only interested parties in Jerry Jones' deals with Nike and Pepsi. The the city of Irving --home of Texas Stadium -- "may be getting a piece of the Pepsi and Nike pie," according to this morning's FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM. Carlos Illescas reports that Irving Mayor Morris Parrish met with Jones last week to discuss the city's desire for a cut of the money Pepsi, Nike, and others are paying Jones from recent deals. Under Jones' Texas Stadium Corp. contract, Irving is to receive 8% of sales revenue from the stadium. Illescas also notes Irving wants Jones to pay "about" $1.8M for the last two years of revenue from skybox sales (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 11/9).
