FedExField Lands More College Football; Naming-Rights Vote Blocked
FedExField today announced that it will host a West Virginia-Virginia Tech football game on Sept. 2, 2017. The game will mark VT's fourth appearance at FedExField since '04 and WVU’s third since '12 (FedExField).
Meanwhile, the SEC on Friday "upheld the request by FedEx to block a move by activist shareholders to vote" on the company's stadium naming rights deal with the Redskins. In its regulatory filing with the body, FedEx said that the "deal is part of the 'ordinary business' of advertising and not subject to a shareholder vote" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 7/15).
