Sturt FC Goes Public – Council not in loop

So 5AA through Keith Conlon and Greame Goodings broke the great news that the Double Blues have secured a naming rights sponsor for Unley Oval after the Commander Group pulled out. Pity that because I have only just signed up with them.

I may have to stand corrected but I thought that under the lease agreement (yes the Oval does belong to the City of Unley) they (Sturt) had to obtain our approval. The strategy being the name should not create negative impacts on the community of Unley.

At the very least it would have been courtesy I believe for Council to have been informed. It is sure to inflame one or two councillors.

Anyway the naming rights have gone to Envestra, a gas supply company.
