Qualcomm Stadium's Temporary Rebranding To Snapdragon Stadium Began Last Night
Published December 19, 2011
THE NAME GAME: NBC's crew calling Ravens-Chargers last night made mention of the stadium's new name during the broadcast. NBC's Al Michaels said, “This stadium's been around since 1967. It was Jack Murphy Stadium for a while, then Qualcomm bought the naming rights. Qualcomm has a new product, believe it or not, called Snapdragon, so for the next couple of weeks this stadium will actually be known -- there it is -- Snapdragon Stadium.” A camera panned to an illuminated Snapdragon sign in the stadium. NBC's Cris Collinsworth said, “Snapdragon’s one-for-one so far.” Michaels: “Last night I’m trying to think about Howard Cosell saying, ‘Hello again everyone and welcome to Snapdragon Stadium in San Diego, California. The end of civilization as we know it’” (“Ravens-Chargers,” NBC, 12/18).
