Call it what you will, Titans' home has new naming rights partner

Apparently, entering into a naming rights deal with the Tennessee Titans not only allows a corporation to put its name on the NFL team’s home field, it also provides the opportunity to define the venue.

Adelphia considered the structure on the East bank of the Cumberland River a coliseum. For the last 10 years, LP Building Products viewed it as a field.

Now comes Nissan North America and its belief that it is a stadium.

The Titans have reached an exclusive 20-year agreement with the automaker that will rebrand the facility as Nissan Stadium beginning with the coming season, according to a report from The Tennessean. The report said a formal announcement was to come Thursday.

Downtown-basd LP signed a 10-year deal in 2006 that established LP Field as the Titans’ home. That deal is set to expire this year, although The Tennessean report says that the sides will maintain a business partnership.

The building was called Adelphia Coliseum from 1999 through 2002 and simply The Coliseum in between that deal and the one with LP.
