Lotte, Chiba to sell naming rights to Chiba Marine Stadium

It seems both Chiba City and the Chiba Lotte Marines decided earlier today to sell the naming rights for Chiba Marine Stadium beginning with the 2011 season.  The profit made from the sale will be used towards the installment of new turf in the stadium.

Lotte really wasn't too interested in selling the naming rights to the stadium, but with Chiba struggling financially, the club decided to go along with the city's request to sell the naming rights.
