Studies have shown naming rights do little to boost any corporate catchment in a market, and also the public is slow to gravitate away from normalized names.
Based on what you stated, I'm not sure how MLSE will wind up regretting it. It sounds more like Scotiabank will be the ones regretting it if people still stick to the ACC name. MLSE will still have 800 mill regardless of what people decide to call it.
