ALLTEL STADIUM: A source said that a Jacksonville-area company offered $2.5M annually over ten years for the naming rights to Alltel Stadium, which the Jaguars “rejected because they are looking for something in the [$5-6M] range.” Jaguars Senior VP/Stadium Operations & CFO Bill Prescott: “We think we really need to tap into the national market” (JACKSONVILLE BUSINESS JOURNAL, 9/1 issue).

NASCAR’s unofficial estimate was 102,000 (L.A. TIMES, 9/5)....MasterCard’s new PayPass wristband will be given to the first 5,000 fans entering Giants Stadium for Sunday’s Colts-Giants game.
