The site is Ashburton Grove, but Emirates are the sponsors of the stadium. It's a bit like Bolton's stadium being called the Reebok Stadium.

I'm not that keen on the name yet, but it might grow on me.

Shit, do I not like that. At least it's not the nike air max arena or something though.

I really don't like that, doesn't matter as I'm still going to call it Ashburton Grove, anyway.

same here, i doubt many Arsenal fans will be calling it the Emirates stadium (I certainly hope not anyway), it just doesn't sound right. 'Right mate, im off down the Emirates' :rolleyes:
It doesn't overly matter though IMO, they are providing us with huge sums of money and the stadium will still be great, more worrying i think is the fact we will have Fly Emirates as our shirt sponsor from 2006/7 until 2114! As the emirates logo is blue i don't see any hints of blue working on the Arsenal shirt. Just have to wait and see though, i haven't been disapponted by the quality of Arsenal's shirts in a long, long time so hopefully that'll continue.

Isn't it white on Chelsea's home kit though? They'll probably just put a white logo on our home, and probably white on our away kit as well, depending on it's color.

does that mean that Emirates r financing the building of the new stadium? or are they just sponsors? its sort of confusing, because they got their name on it, which means they own it? but, i they own it, then how is it a 15 yr contract only? so after 15 yrs the Stadium name changes? that would be weird...

They don't own the stadium. Arsenal do, It is called 'The Emirates Stadium' for the next 15 years.
The shirt sponsor is a seperate deal for 5 yeras starting in the 2006/07 season(the first of the new stadium)
Next year(2005/06) we will still be O2.

Fly Emirates and Chelsea agreed to break their ties, so Chelsea can get a bigger deal and Emirates can pump more money into Advertsing with Arsenal...

It's basically just advertising for Emirates, their putting their name on the stadium and paying Arsenal 100 million over the next 15 years for it. Arsenal still own the stadium.

oh ok thx for clearing things up. Eventhough i live in the Emirates (the country not the plane :rolleyes: ), they didn't provide us with any information whatsoever about this.

I really don't like the idea of sponsoring stadiums, although Emirates Stadium sounds infinite times better than the Nike Arena, especially as we were supposed to pronounce it yank (Nike-eeeeeeeee).

And when that 15 years is up - what happens then? The name of the stadium is changed again to the name of the highest bidder?

Sorry, stadium sponsoring is a horrible idea. Especially for a big club like Arsenal, are any other big European clubs changing the name of their stadium according to sponsors. Big clubs and good stadiums aren't sold out to coroprate companies (Bernabeau, Nou Camp, Old Trafford, San Siro etc...) leave that to Bolton.

Thats thrue Liam, I don't like to agree with you, haha. But It's true big teams shouldn't do this. Apparently we needed to. But we have been alright without Hundreds-of-millions in the bank before.
However, Ajax' stadium is called the 'Sony Amsterdam ArenA' and PSV's is called the 'Phillipstadion' and I believe PSV means 'Phillips Something V'...
One more, FC Bayern Munchen's new stadium is the 'Allianz Airlines Arena'...

Yeah selling the name of the stadium sucks but it's either that or no stadium at all and I know what I'd prefer.

Yea i know changing stadium names sounds wrong to me, specially that after 15 yrs the name would change again. Why can't hey just sponsor Arsenal without changing the Stadium's name? Sounds dumb to me. They can have their name written all over the walls and belongings of the club, if they're looking for more customers and fame, without the need of changing the Stadium name.

The fans are gonna decide the stadium name anyway, AFC can tell us what to call it but I think that if everyone wants to call it Ashburton Grove then they will(I haowever hate that name as for its WAY too long and I really don't want to call it the Grove or Ashburton) I would have prefered it be called Highbury, and even it is a new stadium how many stadiums look the same today compared to 40 years ago? Or maybe Wengerland or something I dunno....Although the amount of money we get for it suprises and pleases me coz this damn thing is costinbg us soooo much. Besides its only for 15 years anyway, I'll prolly be dead by then so I don't care.

In 6 years time you wont think twice about calling it Emirates Stadium and say, "That sounds wierd".

Just like when they change the name of it again in 15 years, you will dislike it, then grow to like it.

Money makes the world go round, we all know that.

The new name for the stadium is just plain crap its just so boring. I like stadiums to have a original name like Highbury,Old trafford and Anfield, not some advertising scheme so that company will get richer. I suppose that the money will be of great use in the summer :D
