Stadium Name Not Expected To Change: The Courier News reports that TD Bank Financial Group’s acquisition of Commerce Bank will not affect the naming rights deal that the latter financial institution signed with the Patriots in 2000.
The 15 year, $3.55 million deal was announced at the 2000 All-Star Game, so if there were to be any changes, keep in mind that the Patriots are hosting the 2008 midsummer classic.
“Our naming rights agreement is carried through 2015, and we anticipate it to be continued as Commerce Bank Ballpark,” Patriots owner Steve Kalafer told the paper.
TD Bank Financial Group does have a history of taking over the naming rights deals of banks they’ve acquired, however. After acquiring Fleet, Boston’s Fleet Center became TD BankNorth Garden.
