The New Showground tops poll

43% of Iron fans who voted on our poll would like to see the new 12,000 seater stadium, that is to be built on the outskirts of Scunthorpe, named The New Showground.

Iron Chairman Peter Swann had suggested the Iron Arena was one of the leading contenders, however this received just 21% of the vote.

20% didn’t like any of the suggestions, with fans adding on the forum that “The Blast Furnace” was a suitable alternative.

The remaining 14% suggested a sponsor’s name should be included and the club should sell naming rights.

Iron fans are reminded that Peter Swann will host another consultation evening at Glanford Park on Thursday 14th August, where plans will be discussed further.
