Just watching the Arsenal game at the Emirates ... and wondered now whether renaming selhurst park would be something the board would consider if the right offer came along?

This might have been covered before, but now as we are up for a 2nd season and have a pretty decent team - surely we are far more attractive to sponsors?

There was talk of it happening this season but fans seemed very opposed to it so I doubt it.

Now the cladding is up and looking good any chance of changing the name of the Main stand to the Edmund Goodman stand? Would be good to have a few more reminders of our history around the place.

I'd hate to have the stadium renamed, but money talks, if it is worth it, do it. We will always call it Selhurst anyway.

He haunts the Main Stand.

Very sad story :(

Ok I'm going to be controversial here.

If the extra income were to contribute towards the academy and help to fund quality players that keeps Palace in the Prem for years to come, then why not rename the stadium.

If we want to compete and close the gap to the other London Prem clubs we need the extra income, simple as that I'm afraid.

If we renamed the ground to something like Sainsbury's Park and Sainsbury's provided say 40m towards the ground then I would bite their hand off.

Just a thought...I look forward to the stick.

I'm ashamed to admit I spelled his name wrong.

Billy Callender may haunt the Main Stand, but a good way.

Probably more to do with it being a betting company Steve. Other brand names would probably be acceptable if it helps the club move forward with TP plans etc and we'd still call it selhurst park:lux:.

Years of mocking the Tesco bags and we go get sponsored by Sainsburys . I hope not

Unless it's too good to refuse then ya just roll on as we are I guess

Calling their stadium "the Reebok" doesn't appear to have helped Bolton compete with the likes of Arsenal and Spurs. The Ricoh didn't seem to have that magic effect either. I wonder if losing the name of our stadium to something like "The Sainsburys" is really worth it? Are Stoke and Hull doing that much better than us because their stadiums have been renamed to a sponsor company's name?

Would be interesting to know I suppose.

As long as it's not a gambling/pay day loan company, I think we'll be OK with it

I can't see any problem whatsoever with renaming the ground. Call it what you like, take the money from any sponsor willing to pay, and then use the money to subsidise season tickets.

See how much 'opposition' there is then.

It's all a load of old rubbish anyway. Everyone will still call it Selhurst Park, apart from Sky.

Only if we get it agreed with the PL that if Sainsbury's sponsor us, for every game we win we get an extra Nectar point as well added to our league total! That should see us stay up next year as well!

I've always had loyalty to Sainsburys due to the link to our ground whereas I've never really used Tesco and have always taken the piss out of people that shop there for carrying a bag that looks disturbingly like a brighton shirt

I agree with you. If the Chairmen feel it's right for the club then so be it. We have to move forward and changes will happen.

Put it this way, everyone still refers to the Orient ground as Brisbane Road, instead of The Matchroom Stadium. If the right deal came along from a respectable company I doubt there'd be much opposition, as we'd all still call it selhurst park anyway!

We got a fair bit as I understand it from 12Bet without the need to stop playing at Selhurst Park, would the incremental benefit be that great from going the whole way? Personally I think the type of deal done with 12Bet (although I'd prefer it hadn't been a betting company and hope a payday loan firm wouldn't even get through the front door) is a good compromise.

40 million quid?
I would be open to discussion, for 40 million quid.

Yes they are. I saw them last night and they will indeed be unvieled tonight. Not only do they look great - with designs that everybody will love - but the close up detail, little touches, quality of cloth and attention to detail are exceptional.

It's Selhurst Park, end of. No amount of money can or will change that
