I think IG got a sweetheart deal on the naming of the stadium in exchange for a large donation to the NDP party. Just making this up, and it is highly unlikely to be true, but I thought this was a thread about conspiracy theories?

With the rebranding, they are planning on moving the stadium as well, right?

Let's hope so! (Actually, I love the new location!!)

I realize it's probably *meant* to be pronounced as two separate letters...I.G. Field.

But I think I'm going with Ig field, as a single word, "Ig".  Rolls of the tongue easier, and sounds a little sillier.

as do i...way more accessible to all with less traffic snarl...wherever you put one, there is always going to be parts of the population that have to drive a distance...and that traffic around polo park on a game day was no joy

Can we make it one word?  Igfield? 

Eye Gee Field really doesn't roll off the tongue... have to wonder why the rebrand at Investors Group... Investors Group says a lot more about the business than IG.  I can understand rebranding Toronto Dominion to TD to reduce regeionality, or Kentucky Fried Chicken to KFC because name recognition was already established and Kyle Connor needed a nickname, but Investors Group to IG?  Baffling.

You do realiaze Investors Group doesn't actually own the stadium, right?  It's just a name, they basically paid for a sign and some branding, in 5 years it will probably change and be called something else.  Maybe the "The Republik of Manitoba People's Stadium" would warm your heart. 

"The Republic of Manitoba People's Stadium", that's GOLD !!  Grin

Although to be fair, you are easily baffled. They rebranded to IG Wealth Management not "IG". Wealth management (think financial services, tax and accounts, retirement, full portfolio management and advise) is more reflective of their service offerings and the term is synonymous with a host of other services. Investment management (managing bonds, shares, mutual funds, etc.) usually refers to a more narrow subset of wealth management.

I guess going after the Assante Wealth Management type business... I guess I always pictured Investors Group as more catering to a blue collar crown, and less a "wealth" crowd...
