The Denver Broncos have tapped sports marketing agency WME | IMG to secure a naming rights partner. WME | IMG will lead the search as the Broncos seek to rename Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
The Broncos took over the search for a new naming rights partner in late August, after a judge overseeing Sports Authority’s bankruptcy case ruled in the team’s favor.
The Broncos asked for the naming rights Aug. 2 after Sports Authority missed its $3.6 million payment for the naming rights contract.
Now the team has passed off that responsibility to WME | IMG.
“WME | IMG’s extensive network throughout the sports and entertainment industry will serve as a tremendous resource for our organization in this very important process,” Broncos President and CEO Joe Ellis said in a press release. “Naming rights are critical to improving our stadium and the overall fan experience. Teaming up with WME | IMG will help us find the right partner that understands the values of our organization and this community.”
