Manchester City chairman open to stadium naming rights deal

Manchester City Football Club chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has suggested the FA Cup winners will sell the naming rights to the Eastlands Stadium.

Fellow Barclays Premier League sides such as Arsenal, Bolton Wanderers and Stoke City have all have deals in place for their stadiums.

With City having confirmed UEFA Champions League football for next season, any deal will have been enhanced for Roberto Mancini’s side.  

Speaking to the club’s official website, Al Mubarak said: "I believe we have much bigger commercial opportunities now, including stadium naming rights, to explore with the benefit of maintaining the strength of the squad and the company."

Any agreement could be worth between £100m-£200m dependent on the length of the deal.
