Cal signs naming rights deal with Kabam for stadium

Cal has agreed to a nearly $18 million deal with Internet video game maker Kabam for the naming rights to the field at Memorial Stadium.

The school announced the 15-year deal on Thursday that will make its home field known as “Kabam Field at California Memorial Stadium.”

The field name will be placed on the two 25-yard lines of Kabam Field and around the stadium.

Kabam co-founder and CEO Kevin Chou is a Cal alum and says he is excited about the partnership. Kabam was recently named the fastest growing Internet media company in the Bay Area for the second consecutive year.BerkeleyCalCollege SportsKabam
