Speaking to the Guardian, CEO of the RFU Ian Ritchie said that the union would be open to the move, if the right offer were on the table.
“There’s nothing specific at the moment. We haven’t had a proposal but you would look at it. All the money we get goes back into the game, so I certainly wouldn’t rule it out. It’s the nature of the beast.”
“You’ve got to make sure it’s the right deal,” Ritchie said. “There are some brand associations that would be more challenging than others. Wembley took the ‘in association with’ option, rather than simple naming rights. There’s a balance between that and maintaining the heritage and tradition. And, frankly, what’s the money on the table?”
