UNC Trustees Mulling Corporate Advertisements in Athletic Venues

Posted July 19, 2004 10:59 a.m. EDT

— Trustees for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill this week will consider whether to consider allowing advertising inside two high-profile sports arenas.

The campus board will review advertising in the Dean E- Smith Center and Kenan Stadium. The Smith Center is home to the Tar Heels men's basketball team. Kenan Stadium is home to the school's football team.

The arenas have remained free of advertising while other campuses have accepted the money and the signs.

The UNC-Chapel Hill board of trustees must decide whether the need for more revenue for the athletics department is strong enough to change.
