The Hull City fans who are gathered at the bar in The Transfer Tavern this evening are discussing reports confirming the club have changed the name of their stadium.
The Hull Daily Mail is reporting that the KC Stadium will now be known as the KCOM Stadium due to a rebrand by the company who have the naming rights to the stadium.
As part of a massive rebrand the aforementioned KC will now be known as KCOM.
KC have had the naming rights for the stadium since the club moved to the state of the art complex back in 2002, and although originally known as the Kingston Communications Stadium it was soon shortened to the KC Stadium by the fans.
Speaking about the rebranding a spokeswoman for KC said: “The KC Stadium will become the KCOM Stadium, while the KC Lightstream Stadium will become the Lightstream Stadium. We’re talking to the stadium management company and Hull Kingston Rovers about these changes and we expect to be able to confirm in the coming weeks when they’ll take effect.”
The Hull fans in The Tavern are not overly concerned about the change of stadium name as long as their football club keeps its identity that’s all that matters to them.
The Tigers punters are hoping they can keep going in their fight for promotion, with the race for the top two heating up in the Championship!
