Mentioned in this blog, both the cricket and Rhino's ground

Yorkshire - desperate to address debts of around £25million - are working in partnership with Leeds Rugby (Super League's Rhinos and the Carnegie rugby union club) to secure a long-term naming rights partner for the entire sports site. They are using the unique nature of Headingley - no venue in the world is home to more days of professional sport - as their sales pitch and have whittled down three interested parties to two over the past couple of months. It is anticipated that the long-term deal will provide around £1m a year in new revenue (to be split 50-50 with their rugby counterparts).

The development comes after the sponsorship deal struck with Leeds Metropolitan University's sports faculty Carnegie expired. So, for the time being at least, Yorkshire's home is just plain old Headingley.

Which company would be an appropriate sponsor of Headingley? That is either by their name, or a product, or service they supply...

I think the only sponsor that would pass the strict taste test is:

 

Headingley Yorkshire Tea

 

Three (at least two) things close to many people's heart :D

The mobile phone network EE has been named as the new sponsor for the Headingley Stadium complex.

 

This deal provides a couple of spare vowels and as such Leeds fans can stop moaning whenever someone misses one out.

 

:rtfm:

Err, the "Iconic Begging Bowl" thank you very much. We'll never forget to refer to that sorry saga without "iconic".

 

And for someone so picky with place name spelling you must try harder. ;)

Half of the panoramic view of the pitch is always being obstructed  by idiots in blue and yellow shirts.
