Facility Notes: La Liga Side Osasuna Changes Stadium Name Back To "El Sadar"
La Liga side Osasuna's stadium has regained its historic name, El Sadar, at the conclusion of "a sponsorship agreement with the local government under which the stadium had been called Reyno de Navarra in recent years." At the end of '05, Osasuna and the Navarro Government reached a sponsorship agreement that paid the club €1.5M ($1.9M) per season. "Reyno de Navarra" was the name the regional government created to promote tourism in the region (EFE, 7/9). ... Bundesliga club Eintracht Braunschweig "has agreed to a two-year stadium naming-rights deal with former title sponsor Volkswagen Bank." The bank will pay €300,000 ($383,000) annually for the stadium marketing rights. The stadium "will not change its name and will continue to be the Eintracht-Stadion" (NDR, 7/8).
