TEXAS STADIUM COULD GET NEW NAME IN EXPANSION EFFORTS
Published January 10, 1996
Several City Council members said Texas Stadium could get a new name when it is expanded, according to the DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Texas Stadium would likely get a corporate sponsor's name like 3Com Park in San Francisco and the RCA Dome in Indianapolis, while the city would benefit from the millions in companies pay for naming rights. Dianna Hunt reports City Council member Jack Spurlock said the money involved in a name change would make the renovations "more palatable" (Dianna Hunt, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 1/5). BUT WILL RENOVATIONS EVEN HAPPEN? The stadium's original architect says renovating Texas Stadium and putting a dome on it is unrealistic. Warren Morey, who designed Texas Stadium for original Cowboys Owner Clint Murchison says putting a dome on the facility would require major reinforcement of the roof support system and expanding seating would alter the sight lines. Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones is confident it is feasible (WASHINGTON POST, 1/7).
