NFL’s Titans rename LP Field to Nissan Stadium

According to The Tennesean, the Tennessee Titans have issued naming rights to Nissan North America and, in turn, will refer to home as Nissan Stadium.

Apart from undisclosed financial jargon, a press conference is due up tomorrow to discuss an alleged partnership for the next two decades.

Previously holding naming rights to the Tennessee Titans home stadium was Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, of which a break up between the two is scheduled once their 10-year contract expires.

From “Adelphia Coliseum” to “The Coliseum” to “LP Field” (1999-2015)

Since its inaugural opening in 1999, Adelphia Business Solutions were the first to christen their name for the stadium (Adelphia Stadium 1999-2002), but with complications in making payments on a 15-year/$30 million deal, they lost those rights.

Until 2006, the Titans’ stadium would be affectionately known as The Coliseum, but in 2006, Louisiana-Pacific Corporation bought naming rights with a 10-year/$30 million price tag.
