Commercialism F.C vs Tradition utd

heres an article from footballbc.com

Arsenal chairman David Dein has admitted that the club might sell the name of their new stadium to a commercial company.

Dein said: "We are looking at it carefully. It may be that we do consider the naming rights of the new stadium. We may have to.

"There is always a problem concerning tradition but there are financial considerations too, and we have to weigh them up carefully when we come to it."
----------------------------------------------------

My thoughts: our new stadium to be called Nike Zone? Adidas park? come on. this is bullsht. everything is losing to money. soon we won't even be Arsenal no more. it would be Nikers or something. i mean our new jerseys to me look bad with the new sponsers.

But the thing is, how do we survive without money? this is a very big problam in the football world. money is practicly everything. i dont blame the arsenal board for doing all this, but i truely wish somethign could be atleast tried.
the future for arsenal: ?
We are now called Arsenal Nike
our staidum is called Nike Zone
:depress:

Ever heard of Bayer Leverkusen? Named after after a drug company, mmmm lovely!

English clubs will never sell their names - but you may see something like "Nike Stadium" or "Nike Islington" just as Bolton named their new stadium after Reebok.

bayer leverkusen is a drug company name?
:howler:
thats something i didnt know.

yes, i think its stupid to give away such pride in naming a new stadium into nike. bolton should not have done it with reebok. when you think of reebok, you think of a crappy team like bolton.

No - the ancient Persians did.

Considering the renaming of the stadium, Bayer is not a good example. They're owned by the pharmaceuticals company - it's not selling out the club. Hamburg SV naming their stadium the AOL Arena - that's selling out the club.

Bayer makes the original Aspirin.
I would cry if our stadium was called Nike Zone. If it was a more obscure or high class name it would be easier to live with. Even so though it needs to be something traditional.

Didn't he donate plenty of money to construct it, though? Considering that at the time he was earning about 1000 times the average wage in Austria.

Surprised that you didn't know already, oh well...

Being called the Sir Elton John stadium has just become a possibility, with him stepping down as Chairman of Watford.

My personal favourite is:

Team: Young Boys Berne
Stadium: Wankdorf

Ahh the knowledge imparted on me by the CM series ...
