AT&T (T), announced Thursday, that it has completed a naming deal with Dallas Cowboys owner, Jerry Jones.
With the deal completed the Cowboys Stadium is no more, it has now been renamed the AT&T Stadium. AT&T said that part of the reason it wanted to saddle up with the Cowboys is because Dallas, Texas is the company’s hometown. AT&T also states that the deal will be used to expand the Wi-Fi available in the stadium.
Some fans aren’t happy about the change, including Clarence Hill, Cowboys’ beat writer for The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, who took to Twitter with his complaints.
“I would have been okay with AT&T Cowboys Stadium. But taking Cowboys out the name entirely..Jerry sold out for the cash.”
Other fans took to the Dallas Cowboys’ Facebook page to voice their complaints.
“It will always be COWBOY STADIUM to me!! Never will I call it anything else, I don’t care what that man Jones says!!!!” and “I hate that name….It should stay Cowboys Stadium… Leave it Alone Jerry Jones!!!!!” are a couple of the more toned down comments.
One fan couldn’t care less about the name switch.
“Can the Cowboys focus on winning football games PLEAAAAAASE??? #ATTstadium #whocares”
