Millers reveal new stadium's name

IT'S official...Rotherham United's new ground will be known as the New York Stadium.

Chairman Tony Stewart along with Howard Webb today formally announced the name of £20m landmark venue on the former Guest and Chrimes Foundry site, which used to be known as New York.

Said chairman Tony Stewart: "The new stadium name is strongly rooted in more than 150 years of Rotherham's proud history of industry and enterprise, linking the old and the new eras and, I believe, it befits such a fantastic new stadium right at the heart of Rotherham"

  • i would have thought 'the council tax payers stadium' would have been more appropriate. wonder how many councillors will be turning up on matchday to enjoy the 'hospitality' . how about the advertiser does some proper reporting and let the public know?
