3COM CLEARS HURDLE IN SECURING LONG-TERM NAMING RIGHTS
Published January 19, 1996
The S.F. Parks Commission voted unanimously yesterday to accept a deal worth at least $4M to keep the 3Com name over Candlestick Park at least through the end of '99, according to the SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS. The deal now faces a vote next month by city supervisors. Despite concerns from Mayor Willie Brown, commission Chair Jack Immendorf notes the deal is actually worth $5.5M, as 3Com will pay for signage and agreed to buy $350,000 in stadium ads each year (Richard Sandoval, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 1/19).
