Although construction has yet to begin on the proposed riverfront football stadium in St. Louis, it now has a $158 million name:
National Car Rental Field.
Late Tuesday, Gov. Jay Nixon’s stadium task force and Enterprise Holdings, the parent company of National Car Rental, revealed a 20-year deal worth an average of $7.9 million a year.
The state of Missouri or the city of St. Louis could pledge the annual proceeds to a bond measure to provide a large chunk of cash for construction of the stadium, though it is still unclear exactly how the money will be used.
