** New York's football team, the Buffalo Bills, was said to be flirting with a move to Toronto, and part of the reason was that when the original naming rights contract for the team's stadium expired in 1998, the founding owner, Ralph Wilson, named the stadium after himself rather than enter into another sponsorship contract. After Wilson's death in 2014, his family sold the team, and the new owner, Terry Pegula, changed course, and the Bills' stadium is now known as New Era Field.

* Not just the stadiums. New Jersey has a UsefulNotes/MajorLeagueSoccer team called the New York [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_Bull Red Bulls]], which are owned by Red Bull.[[note]]Technically, Red Bull doesn't own the team, although it has the same control that team owners have in most other sports leagues. MLS has a "single-entity" structure, in which the league actually owns all the teams. Each franchise has a controlling investor which is in fact a shareholder in the league.[[/note]] Of course, they play at Red Bull Arena.

** Aside from the Daytona 500 and the Party at the Poconos 400 (which is, however, presented by UsefulNotes/WalMart), every race has a sponsor too. They used to have normal names like the ''Firecracker 400'' (summer Daytona race) and the ''Southern 500'' (Darlington), but now we have such gems as the ''[=TreatMyClot.com=] 300'' and ''Crown Royal Presents the "Your Name Here" 400 at the Brickyard powered by [=BigMachineRecords.com=]'' (it tied in with a promotion where people could nominate a personal hero for a chance to be part of the race's name)

** Sometimes, it remains grating, like when [[FanNickname the Jake]] became Progressive Field, or when the Denver Broncos moved out of Mile High Stadium and into INVESCO Field at Mile High (yes, it's actually a different stadium). INVESCO then bailed on the stadium, now known as Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

* All the Spanish basketball teams fall into this, to the point most great teams are remembered by the sponsor. The only team to avoid this is the incredibly wealthy Real Madrid. Even their also incredibly wealthy sworn rivals, Barcelona, have their own sponsor.

Even their also incredibly wealthy sworn rivals, Barcelona, have their own sponsor. In recent years, Baskonia[[note]]from the Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz[[/note]] has averted this trope; its most recent sponsorship contract expired in 2016, and the team's last sponsor included "Baskonia" in the sponsored name.



** ''The Newlywed Game'' obviously has the most of these. The first season's bonus question was sponsored by eHarmony.com. There have been questions sponsored such companies as Miracle Whip, Ashley Furniture Homestores, and Macy's. Not to mention a week sponsored by Cost Plus World Market, shows where winners also got a Toshiba camcorder, and dare I say, the [--obviously rigged--] Reeds In The Lead Round?

* As bad as it might seem, it used to be even worse in the early days of radio and TV. Examples would be shows with the sponsor's name. This trend started to end in the 1960s and the concept of corporate naming declined only to revive in the 1990s. Examples of TV shows:

** ''The Eveready Hour'', which ran from 1923 to around 1930 was not only the first "variety show" but also the UrExample.
** A few bands of the 1920s and early 1930s made records under their radio names, such as ''The Clicquot Club Eskimos'' (Harry Reser) and ''The Ipana Troubadours'' (Sam Lanin), among others.
** While retroactively known as ''Radio/TheJackBennyProgram'', the show was known on radio as ''The Canada Dry Program'', ''The Chevrolet Program'', ''The General Tire Revue'', ''The Jell-O Program'', ''The Grape-Nuts Flakes Program'' and of course, ''The Lucky Strike Program''.
** Similarly, ''Fibber [=McGee=] and Molly'' was known as ''The Johnson Wax Program'' while ''The Charlie [=McCarthy=] Show'' ran as ''The Chase & Sanborn Program''.
**
Examples of TV shows:shows include ''Camel News Caravan'', the ancestor of the ''Creator/{{NBC}} Nightly News''. Nowadays sponsorship of national news programs are avoided to prevent conflicts-of-interest.



** ''Camel News Caravan'', the ancestor of the ''Creator/{{NBC}} Nightly News'' (the medium must have been too young to worry about conflict-of-interest)



** ''Repórter Esso'' (the first Brazilian news show)
** ''Hallmark Hall of Fame'' (current)
** ''Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom'' (both original and current versions)
** ''Panasonic Drama Theatre'' (Japan, current)
** Each episode of ''Series/TheDanaCarveyShow'' had a different sponsor, and integrated the sponsor into the show's title; for example, the first two episodes were ''The Taco Bell Dana Carvey Show'' and ''The Mug Root Beer Dana Carvey Show''. This was done as an homage to the shows mentioned above. This got him into trouble as Taco Bell pulled their sponsorship after Dana Carvey interrupted one of their commercials to mock it and started off one show with a skit about a lactating Bill Clinton which was seen as "too much for something three minutes after ''Series/HomeImprovement''".
** It was mostly due to sponsors threatening to pull their sponsorship that the infamous quiz show scandals happened.


Added DiffLines:

** The infamous quiz show scandal erupted after sponsors pulled their ad money from quizzes after it became obvious that a lot of them were rigged.
** ''Repórter Esso'' (various Latin American countries, primarily Brazil and Chile)
** ''Martini al Instante'' ("Martini on the Spot") (Chile, 1970s)
** ''El Observador Creole'' ("The Creole Observer") (Venezuela)
** ''Hallmark Hall of Fame'' (current)
** ''Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom'' (both original and current versions)

** Bayer 04 Leverkusen are historically associated with the pharmaceutical company Bayer, and their stadium is the [=BayArena=]. This has somewhat more organic roots than usual, as the team started as the football division of a sporting club for the company's employees (historically a common practice, especially in Germany). The firm's iconic pill logo (a white circle with "Bayer" written both horizontally and vertically, intersecting at the "Y"; if you've ever seen a Bayer aspirin pill, it's that) is the centerpiece of the team's logo, and the team is nicknamed ''Die Werkself'' ("The Company's Eleven").

** And every time the Flyers score a goal, Jim Jackson enthuses "[[HelloInsertNameHere Flyer X]] scores for a case of Tastykakes!,"
although given the great popularity of Tastykake's products in Philadelphia (particularly Krimpets), this sounds less forced than the others.
