"I think it should reflect some cultural significance. The reason for that is we were activity involved with the winter games and it should still be a part of that, something that reflects the community."

"From an economic point of view operating a place like the Pepsi Centre costs a bit of money. If a business wanted to sponsor the stadium it would help get the bills paid. Naming it for cultural significance would be nice but will not get the bills paid."

"I like the cultural opposed to the ones that sign the cheques. Culture will have more significance and meaning for the community."

"It should be cultural. I dislike buildings or facilities called after sponsorship companies or advertising companies. There should be a connection to the community and culture in the name."

The 10-year deal that Browning Harvey had with the naming of the Pepsi Centre expires this month. The City of Corner Brook issued a request for proposals for the stadium’s naming rights last summer, with the deadline for submissions set for last September and their was only one bid submitted.


We asked: Do you think the Pepsi Centre should be named for cultural significance or sponsored by a company to generate revenue?
