How do people on here feel about the naming of the stadium. If a company came in with a large amount of s to have the stadium called after their company say for instance The Macron Arena would it be a yes or a no.

Nah Easter Road will do.

I know the counter argument "it would always be Easter Road" but everyone in the media would need to call it by its official name and we would never hear of Easter Road again except by the fans.

100% take the money if the deal is right for our Club - just pure business in this day and age - it will always be Easter Road to me too. How much does everyone think this would be worth to Hibs considering the exposure on TV the press etc that any company taking it on would get? I will start with 500000 - must be worth at least that to a major sponsor considering the tax relief they would get:flag:

I don't see a problem if the money's right. Unless you're particularly susceptible to advertising it wouldn't make much difference. Newcastle always played at St James' Park , I never called it the Sports Direct Arena. I go to Parkhead not Celtc Park when we play them. Call it what you want it will always be Easter Road (unless we move).

The Lakers, Clippers and Kings play at the Staples Center, the Galaxy and the Chargers play at the Stubhub Center and LAFC will play at the Banc of California Stadium. The Rams are building a new stadium in Inglewood which could see $600m paid to name it the ATT stadium. All of these are recently built stadiums and I see no problem with raising big money through naming rights.

However, the older stadiums in LA are called by historical names like the Los Angeles Coliseum, the Rose Bowl or the Dodger Stadium. If LA deems historical stadium names sacrosanct and turns down big money bids then Hibs should not be tempted by the pittances likely on offer to us.

I vote no on this one and hope that Easter Road is where the last respectable football club in Edinburgh plays forever.

09-05-2017, 11:52 AM
100% yes. Take the money! Alot of teams are doing it to aid income. more income = more money to spend.

No matter its official name. It will always be Easter Road to us. Or the Leith San Siro.

Captain Trips

If it generates good money for us to compete even more then yes.

Some of the branded stadium names make me cringe. Pretty sure that someone plays at Kit-Kat Stadium, which is horrid. Similarly, when folk refer to the Emirates or the Etihad, it just sounds bland.

That said, I would kinda support selling our naming rights to 7-Up. And I'd fully support Hearts selling Tynecastle's naming rights to Wonga.

09-05-2017, 11:57 AM
I think the amount it would raise would actually be fairly minimal , it works in the Premier League as the commercial exposure is huge but I'm not sure the same applies in Scotland otherwise im pretty sure certain clubs who have ran into financial difficulties would have done so by now.

Tha Cabbage Kid
09-05-2017, 11:59 AM
it makes sense to me we need to get money in and thats a good way to do it.

i as a hibs fan will never call it anything other than easter road so it makes no difference.

This is also why it won't happen. Naming rights for established stadiums are worth peanuts compared to new ones where the name will stick.

Thats York City.

We've some shockers up here too, but thankfully everyone sticks to their original names, which makes the whole thing pointless. Almondvale > Tony Macaroni Arena, New Love Street > Paisley 2021 Stadium, New Douglas Park > Superseal Stadium etc etc. Called me old fasioned but i'd rather earn 50k less per season than get rid of a historical name used for 100 years plus and replace it with some pish like the Cheaper Insurance Direct Stadium.

York City changed the name of their stadium back to Bootham Crescent back in 2010 (ish). It was the kitkat stadium on the back of a sponsorhips deal with Nestle for a few seasons. To be fair to them I think they were seriously cash strapped at the time.

It'd be a definite no for me. Mainly due to the fact we'd not get a huge amount for it anyway. If we were to be offered millions (would never happen obviously) then that'd be a different story. For the sake of a couple hundred grand i'd rather we didn't embarrass ourselves with a Tony Macaroni stadium or similar.

A bunch of nameless Yam sympathisers covered the loss to the club on that one ... it didn't lose Hertz a penny to put 'save the children' on their shirts, it was nothing less than a shameless image stunt in an attempt to further distance them from their charity thieves tag ..... I'm not denying it was good for 'save the children' but only under the old adage that its an ill wind that blows nobody any good ..... an altruistic move by Hearts it was not.

As for naming rights to Easter Road ..... it would only be a short term thing and if it makes the club money I don't care what they change the name to .... It was, is and always will be Easter Road to Hibs fans and everybody else in Scottish football ... I would object if it was Wonga or somebody like that though.

And it really helped them compete :wink:

Although it looks like great money for the top English clubs I think we all know that is not the money that helps the compete in the EPL.

Any idea how much Hibs could get from a deal like this and would it be more palatable if we 'grabbed' some money but it was only a 3 - 5 year deal?

Hibs should get in touch with Hibernia Bank based in New Orleans. A local bank for local people and if you click on the link to their home page you will see they have a small obituary for someone in the community. The RBS would have one only for Opium Drug trade.

https://hibbank.com

All that said I am not really in favour of it because I doubt there would be a considerable amount of money and if I am going to prostitute myself I want to be a high class prostitute. I'm not as cheap as I look and certainly not as cheap as our cash strapped rivals.

P.S. I really am as cheap as I look and this afternoon will be checking the ZeroCover Affordable and Unusable Insurance mailbox, just outside the ShopRite Dollar Products Store apartments.

I'm guessing that the money on offer for a decent sized team isn't that much or someone would've done it by now. We only see the smaller clubs doing, but I'm sure teams like hibs or Aberdeen have been approached by businesses to do it. I would imagine tberes a figure that would make a club think about it, but obviously no one has offered enough yet.

The anger with Ashley was just as much about the fact that it was his company the stadium was going to be named after as the fact the name was going to be changed .... as I recall he wasn't the most popular figure with the Toon Army at the time.

As for 'bending over' ....... If it was the strip or the clubs name then yes there would be a backlash and I would be at the front of it ..... but what we are talking about here would be a temporary rebranding of the stadium which would bring much needed money to the club ... say it was 100,000 a year for 5 years ... we would be mental to turn down money like that.

I would say no on a purely emotional basis, but I refer to the stadium as the Holy Ground. How much money do these deals actually generate?

Saw on SSN that a Spurs supporter changed his surname by deed poll to Whitehartlane. Anybody on here done similar?

Can't imagine even a Jambo changing his surname to Tynecastlepark for fear that it would affect his ability to get credit. :greengrin

If Harp Lager was still big in Scotland
The Easter Road Harp would do for me:greengrin

This thread had me thinking, though.

The Albion Road end is now called The Famous Five Stand
What about names for the other 3 stands,other than East,West, and South?

I will make 3 suggestions.

Canon Hannan Stand (Founder of Hibernian FC)

Michael Whelehan Stand (first captain of the club)

Hugh Shaw Stand (managed our club during its finest period, winning 3 league titles)

The Canon Hannan one is a definite for me.

Whelehan would be a second reference to our founding and Shaw to the Famous Five. Both are worth consideration but then there are the Tornadoes, Pat Stanton, Joe Baker and Sir Tom Farmer. There will be other good suggestions as well.

We would have to move with the times and take the money however we would all know it and refer to it as Easter Road or the Leith San Siro.

If we are going to rename the stands, I think the West Stand has to be named the Sir Tom Farmer stand.

He did rebuild the entire place after all.

Rename the East the Leith Stand
The West can be the Edinburgh Stand
Keep the Famous 5 Stand
The South can be the Persevered Stand as a nice wee reminder for the Huns and jambos any time they buy a ticket

I like: the "Stokesy's on fire" stand
the "Albert Kidd" stand.
and "Stubbsy's stand"
