Fans invited to rename Forest Green Rovers’ stadium

Forest Green Rovers fans are being invited to think of a new name for the club’s stadium, incorporating the name of sponsor, Innocent.

Innocent, the fruit smoothie company, is sponsoring FGR’s ground, currently named the New Lawn, and the club are now running a competition on social media to see who can come up with the best idea to rename it.

A panel from Forest Green Rovers, including chairman Dale Vince, will then select a shortlist of the best names.

These will then be put to a second, final fan vote to choose the new name of the stadium.

However, until then – and for one game only – it will officially be named the ‘innocent [insert name here] stadium. The club has even erected a new sign above the main entrance.

Dale Vince, chairman of Forest Green Rovers, said: “This is a great idea from the Innocent team to crowd source a name. We can expect all sorts of suggestions, especially from fans of other clubs – this is football after all – and it’s going to be fun.

“Meanwhile, even our interim name is good, I’m looking forward to hearing media pundits saying that at this weekend’s game. What a great way to kick off our partnership with the guys from Innocent.”

The competition launched on Forest Green Rovers’ and Innocent’s social media pages.

Fans can vote on Facebook by simply leaving a comment on the post.

On Twitter fans simply need to tweet @FGRFC_Official and @innocent with the hashtag #insertnameherestadium.

Forest Green Rovers will play their own and only game under the stadium’s official interim name against Walsall tomorrow.

Many fans have sent in their suggestions, including: The Innocent Pie Stadium; Stadium Mcstadium Face; The Innocent New Lawn Stadium, and The Innocent Little Vegan Club On Top Of The Hill With A New Lawn Stadium.
