An amusing article......

We need the money but the renaming of
Castleford's famous old ground is a tad embarrassing.......

I thought The Jungle name change was part of a sponsorship? We now need those of a twisted nature to link several possible stadium sponsorships to current stadium names to come up with the best or worst they can think of.

I can understand Mend A Hose Stadium but why include the name of a long gone sponsor? Still, he who pays the piper and all that.

I do think some things are just not worth the money for a club.

 

I'm loathe to criticise any sponsor who gets involved in our game, but I'm not a fan of this tbh.

Everyone will still call it Wheldon Road as they always have done, itll only be called that on the radio, on TV and in the press - oh hang on a minute....

Nope, nothing is sacred anymore.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

Dave Hadfield has his say also here.

What do posters here think should be the guiding lines. What should be the minimum a club should accept money wise.

It's ok for a fan of a club with a sugar daddy to say that. Any sponsorship brought in to self funding clubs is to be applauded.
Didn't see a thread like this when Wakey changed their ground name year after year.

To be fair Wakey did ditch the old name before they took the money for the new one.

I honestly don't get what's in it for the sponsor. How many people are there with a pressing need to mend their hose?

How much does a sponsor benefit from sponsoring a shirt or stadium?

I understand they get corporate facilities on match days but does this bring in enough additional business?

There cannot be many in the crowd who are looking for a company to repair their hydraulic hoses.

Kingston Communications have a virtual monopoly on telephone users in the Hull area but as a council majority owned company they still sponsor the KC stadium. In effect the council are sponsoring themselves in an area where they have little competition.

Ah but if you do have any hose related issues, these are the guys to see.

I thought the council had flogged it off and it was now private.

No clubs are self funding, "sugar daddies" are just sponsors.
