    I think money will talk Barrie, hope there’s a long queue of potential sponsors with deep pockets.

    Excellent news, one of the best outcomes we could have asked for.

    Regarding stadium naming rights, since it’s now owned by a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, does that rule out any sort of commercial deal to make some dolla?

    Don’t think being a CIC should prevent ground sponsorship. The rule is any surplus generated should be reinvested, rather than shareholders receiving a dividend.
    Can’t think of a better way to spend the substantial government cash for regenerating Scunny than saving our club and investing in future income streams.
    Massive thank you to everyone who has made this happen.

    Naming rights have been agreed for GP and also the training pitch. Expect announcements in the next week or two.

    We could have a new name completely with a naming rights sponsorship deal! It seems to be the thing at the minute and would bring in much needed funds.

    This is what happens when people who care run the club, there will be still many problems to overcome but we have got half way up the ladder to recovering the position we need to be in.

    Cheers SST. Had a little read up on stadium naming rights for council owned properties and saw that Man City pay their council £2m a year for control of naming rights…which they then get £35m a year for from Etihad Airways. Not a bad markup that!

    They can call it what they want but it will always be GP to us and that’s all that matters.

    Congratulations to everyone involved in this great outcome for the club and the town. It all seemed like a fever dream two short months ago.

    Amazing news.

    I like The New Showground.

    Me too. Connects us with our history and has a poetic ring to it. A long way to go ..but maybe we’re seeing better days coming over the horizon.

    Im sure there would be a way to incorporate a stadium sponsor within also using many fans first choice The New Showground ..
    example
    The Rene Artois New Showground … could well be worth a decent lump od revenue going into the clubs coffers.

    Maybe a name associated with the devolopers of the new Lakeside properties – would bring in cash for the club.
    Or does the lakeside village devolopment no longer exist – excuse my ignorance if its all been shelved?
    Bit out of touch down in the South West :)

    On the contrary, it’s going well, we’ve already got a roundabout on the M181.
    It goes nowhere but that’s not the point.
    We’re waiting for another roundabout next.
