How Long Will Citizens Bank Park Be Named Citizens Bank Park?

The Citzens Bank Park name appears to be safe, at least for now.

From the Business Journal:
Royal Bank of Scotland not selling Citizens Bank parent

Despite a $1.4 billion loss in the fourth quarter, Citizens Financial Group Inc. has made the cut as a core operation at Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc. RBS on Thursday put to rest speculation it would unload the Rhode Island-based banking franchise, which in the Philadelphia area operates Citizens Bank, saying a sale “would be destructive of value and capital.”

But that doesn’t mean the corporate parent of Citizens Bank won’t be making cuts.
Ah, naming rights. Good times.

So.. Um... Can we NOT have a ballpark named after The Royal Bank of Scotland? That would be great, K? Thanks!

Naming rights add so much to the game. ha ha. Didn't Miami have the Thrifty Car Rental Center at one point. That may have to go down as the worst corporate stadium/arena name.

Gotta love naming rights. Didn't Miami have the Thrifty Car Rental Arena? Maybe the best corporate name for a stadium/arena ever.
