Telco takes naming rights to Macedonian national stadium

Telecommunications company Makedonski Telekom has agreed a deal to take on naming rights to Philip II National Arena, Macedonia’s national football stadium.

Under the agreement, the 33,000-capacity facility in Skopje will become known as the Telekom Arena. The deal will run for three-and-a-half years.

As well as hosting matches played by the national team, the stadium is the home ground of Macedonian First League sides FK Vardar and FK Rabotnički.

In September, the stadium was selected to host the 2017 edition of the Uefa Super Cup, which pits the winners of the previous season’s Champions League and Europa League tournaments against one another.
