Doesn't really bother me, i still call it the Reebok & quite like the Home Bargains sponsorship but understand the need to raise money

but....why would we be in discussions now when we have a realistic chance of going up which would surely put us in a stronger negotiating position. Or do these things need to be sorted well in advance ?

Isnt the Hotel going to be Raddison? I would take the Raddison stadium as a name if they chucked us some decent dosh.   

Going to be part of the Radisson support network but not necessarily Radisson branded, I think.

I never saw a problem with Home Bargains personally. It’s a well known brand and not some Mickey Mouse outfit that nobody’s ever heard of and whilst I also continually refer to the stadium as the Reebok, I quite liked the UniBol too. I don’t really care what they call it as long as they come up with the dosh that helps get us promoted.

Cause we all know including Reebok, that we are heading to the championship and beyond from next season😁

Be a shame if that’s the case then as there are obvious benefits to having them on hand for maintenance etc rather than forking out for contractors all the time. 

Could be some benefits though, if for example the club/FV pay for a refurbishment then it might make it more attractive to joining a chain again. A bit like doing your house up before putting it on sale increases your market value.

It seems there’s a happy medium to be had between selling it job lot to a chain and trying to soldier on alone.

So long as it isn’t a building site when I get married there next year then I’m not arsed 😂

"we’d like to thank Home Bargains, who have been fantastic partners over the last three years. But we will have a new partner in place soon on significantly enhanced terms"

 

It's probably a drop in the ocean but every little helps. Anyone got any clue when the stadium and shirt sponsors will be officially announced? I'm an impatient bastard, if they already have it sorted, just bloody tell us!

I don't care if its called the dog shit stadium, just give us some dosh towards the surge upwards.   The Pink Floyd Stadium sounds rather catchy and will hit plenty of headlines across the globe.

Money, it's a gas...

I think I’d draw the line at it being called the dog shit stadium in terms of my lack of caring.

See Keoghs have moved from the ground now... 

Wonder what's going to happen with those offices?

They needed a reno pre pandemic. So whoever owns em these days will need to spend a bit before any fucker rents em out I'd imagine.

People who call the stadium "The Reebok" out of stubbornness are proper sad bastards. It's not been called that for years and Reebok couldn't give a Chinese shite about us.
