Pizza Hut Decline Option to Renew Naming Rights

Formerly Pizza Hut Park, FC Dallas’s home will be referred to as FC Dallas Stadium. Pizza Hut declined to extend its sponsorship of the facility, which it has had the rights to since 2005.

Located nearly thirty miles north of Dallas in Frisco, Texas, FC Dallas will be actively seeking a new partner to claim the naming rights to its stadium for the 2012 season and beyond.

The sponsorship carries with it not only the main facility, but also the seventeen training fields owned by FC Dallas in its suburban complex. Pizza Hut will officially drop its name on January 7, 2012 following an NCAA Division 1 football game to be hosted there.
