SEAHAWKS: Qwest Field to become CenturyLink Field

It’s official. No more Quest Field.

No, I don’t mean the stadium is going to be torn down, but the name will be changing. Due to Qwest (The Company, not the field) being bought by CenturyLink for $10.5 billion, Qwest Field will be changing its name to CenturyLink Field. The name change will be official this Thursday, June 23.

“Although the name of this facility will change; the history, tradition and spirit of the 12th MAN and the Sounders FC supporters will never change,” said Seahawks, Sounders FC and FGI president Peter McLoughlin, in a statement.

To Continue... Selfishly, not thinking about the business side of the equation, I don’t like it. But that’s what we said when “Seahawks Stadium” became “Qwest Field”, so it’s probably too early to tell.

Here's a picture of CenturyLink's logo, if it means anything.
