Questionnaire for Posh fans on the significance of football stadium names

Post by Fraserja » 02 Mar 2019, 18:52

Hi, I am Fraser, a third year student at the Manchester Metropolitan University carrying out my dissertation project on the significance of football stadium names within fan culture. It would be greatly appreciated if you could click on the link below to answer a questionnaire, it will only take a couple of minutes. Thanks ever so much for your help.

London Road for me.
It's like Lang Park in Brisbane - the home of Rugby League, Union and soccer.
It is also known as Suncorp Stadium, but not by me or the ABC. Only the commercial channels call it Suncorp.
They are now calling for sponsors to name the Gabba cricket ground and I can see plenty of objections.

Yes they will. Even mine will. He wants to know fans' feelings on the stadium name. You don't have to go to every match. I've been to hundreds of games at London Road. Even though I can't attend anymore it will always be London Road for me.

Absolutely and I never refer to it as anything else and I am sure this is the case for all football fans who's club still play at the same stadium where they have built and developed their culture and identity. The problem comes with teams that have moved to a new location, where their fans don't have that same bond with the stadium and they have no issues with the sponsorship and financial advantage that goes with a corporately named stadium, even if it changes on a regular basis. Since Leaving Maine Rd, Man City have played at Eastlands, the Manchester stadium and the Etihad, but I can't believe they are particularly bothered about it, but they would have been very unhappy if Maine Rd had been renamed. But for me it's London Road every time and I also call the other end to where I stand, the Moys End.

Is exactly how I feel. Ashton Gate and The Mem in Bristol. Newcastle whilst they are in the current home will forever be St James' Park.

I think you're right Bristle, this goes beyond our own clubs as it is an assault on our football culture and heritage not just at our own clubs. However I reckon Exeter City might be happy at the renaming of the Newcastle ground. :D
