The London Stadium

Post by Frankie Macs Mullet » Thu Jun 09, 2016 6:14 pm

Apologies if mentioned elsewhere.
Anyone notice how the club has dropped "the Olympic Stadium" in favour of "the London Stadium"?
Is this down to copyright or part of the West Ham London marketing strategy do you think?

Sorry if it's already been announced somewhere on this forum. But does anyone have a clue when they will announce who will be sponsoring the stadium? I can't believe we are 2 months away from moving in and we still have no official name for the stadium. And it's not like no one knows who is sponsoring the stadium. So why are they delaying the announcement? :?

^^^ They are probably waiting until the wrap is in place as that's where the sponsor's name will be displayed. Any announcement would need to be accompanied by photos of the stadium.

Not 'announced' but speculated on this thread for past 5 years! :lol:

I'm also amazed it isn't known yet!
