CORBY TOWN STADIUM NAME COMPETITION

A Northamptonshire football club is looking for help from stadia fans to name their new stadium.

Corby Town want to mark a new era at the club by naming their new home something different to the Rockingham Triangle, their current stadium.  So can you come up with a name for the £1.5 million 3,500 capacity venue?

Email your name, contact telephone number and idea proposal for the stadium name to media@corbytownfc.co.uk. All ideas will be reviewed and a shortlist compiled for discussion by a judging panel.

Leader of Corby Borough Council, Cllr Pat Fawcett, said: “The new stadium is a facility built for our local football club, the fans and the community, therefore it feels only right that everyone should have input into naming it. Hopefully we will have lots of suggestions to look over and we look forward to officially revealing the name next month.”

The winning name will be revealed at the start of July when the Borough Council have met with the club to discuss the proposed suggestions. The person who comes up with the chosen name will be invited to attend the first ever match at the stadium, along with three guests, for a special VIP experience as the curtain comes up on a new era for the club.

Where more than one person has proposed the chosen name, all of those with the selected suggestion will go into a hat with the winner of the prize, drawn at random.
