The University of Kentucky is having a press conference later today for the announcement of a major corporate partnership involving the University of Kentucky, UK Athletics and JMI Sports.
It is being said online that the press conference will be about naming rights of Commonwealth Stadium.
According to this report on social media, the stadium will soon be called Kroger Field:
The new stadium name will be called Kroger Field. #BBN

It’s important to note that Patrick Loney broke news of the naming rights several weeks ago.
It seems that fans aren’t too excited about the rumored name:
Kroger Field-give me a break. @robertwrogers23

Kroger Field is pretty awful. Not stuck on Commonwealth, but Kroger Field? We better get a discount for all tailgating needs on gamedays 🍺
