UNC To Accept Corporate Ads At Sports Sites

Posted July 22, 2004 12:15 p.m. EDT

— The Board of Trustees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has approved corporate advertising at university sports arenas.

UNC athletic director Dick Baddour said he is projecting a $600,000 shortfall, so the school is looking at ways of making money.

Right now, the Dean Smith Center and Kenan Stadium are ad-free. Other Triangle arenas already have ads.
