New name for our stadium

Benfica are willing to change the name of their stadium in order to make some profit with it. Samsung are reported to be close to arrange a deal being worth 40 million and lasting for 10 years. The stadium will be called either Estadio de Samsung or Samsung-stadium then.
What's your opinion about that?

I for my part like the idea of getting good money for a stadium-name the fans won't adopt anyway. I will call it Da Luz, regardless to what official sources say, and I bet a lot of Benfiquistas do. So I'm fine with it. In the end it's the fans who give the name to their stadium. So what will Samsung do, if people just go on calling it Da Luz? Not let them enter the stadium.

Agora não, que joga o Benfica! (Deolinda)

i agree, it will always be Luz stadium for me and every other fan im sure and we need the money to build a better team, or even pay for the new stadium.
i wish we didnt have to "rent" the stadiums name, but like we say : é um mal menor, imo

i feel like 10 years may be a bit too long though, simply becoz in 10 years a lot changes and we may be losing money....i hope there is some clause that allows us to re-negociate the deal, in case we become very successful at some point in the next 10 years (wishful thinking )

Anything less than 50 millions is a bad deal, i'd only agree to a name change (temporarily) for a huge contract.

Well, we should be able to find a company willing to butter in 50 millions ... there have been rumours about Coca Cola, no? Should be peanuts for them. In the end they'd get the most handsome stadium in the world actually.
