    Riverside field in Delano Park near the riverfront and just down the hill from College Hill but still close to down town Doo Dah. I would ask if everyone is happy with this name but I know that can never happen

    Actually they named it Riverfront Stadium.
    That’s what I meant to type. My bad, I’ll fix my original post.

    That was exactly my thought as well. Or Delano Field. But "Riverside Stadium" is so underwhelming, like everything else in this project.

    I'm surprised they couldn't or didn't get naming rights for the entire stadium, but I shouldn't be.

    You can always sell naming rights to the "Field" like they did in Cincinnati. Cinergy Field at Riverfront Stadium.

    I would would have thought Riverside Stadium would have been a better choice in Wichita since we have the Riverside Neighborhood nearby plus it doesn't look like were just ripping off someone else's branding.

    I will say that on a day like today the Wind Surge does seem more appropriate but I still fell like we could have done much better with a name.


    Calling it "something" Stadium would be so low-rent Wichita. Just like we did with "something" Arena. Nobody calls basketball venues arenas anymore and nobody calls baseball venues stadiums anymore. They call them Parks or Fields. Sometimes I think these leaders live in a time-stopping bubble.

    This ain't the 80's anymore. It sounds little league.

    If we're going to name the stadium after a neighborhood, I kind of like College Hill Stadium. Or, maybe Lakepoint Stadium.
    Or, how about The Stadium in the Hood?

    Yep, hadn’t thought of Riverside Stadium. Would have preferred that.

    Riverfront Stadium? How were they not able to get a sponsor before it opened?

    Did get tickets today at 10 online before they sold out of box seats for opening day.
