I honestly couldn't care less what they call it because it will always be St. Andrews to us anyway.

Hmm.

Naming our stadium Trillion Trophy is laughable isn’t it? The piss take is endless.

I wouldn’t have minded something a bit more sensible.
We deserve our club back

1) If these fellas are just looking to sell it on, why rename the ground
2) Why are they looking to market their name in the UK?

Could be worse - and critically most people stop reading after the second word, so naming it St Andrew's TT Stadium is better than TT St Andrew's Stadium.

Kristian Pedersen incoming?

Yeah, you can already see the responses we are going to get. I'd have preferred a better name, and in monetary terms its hardly going to end our problems but no one will call it that so it doesn't really matter.

If you add up all the major trophies all the other WM teams have won in this millenia and multiply them by a trillion, we'll still have won more. :D
The new season starts, the enlightenment driven away, the habit-forming pain,
Mismanagement and grief: we must suffer them all again.
I think the vilers have got enough to worry about. They won’t be in a position to take the piss out of anyone for anything. They won’t even be able to read what our ground is called through all of those tears.

Surprised it is called TTA given that we are told that they do not want to be part of this long term

Would like to hear Mayor’s take on this to be fair...

How come we haven’t had a say in it?

Tom Ross Poll and all that shite?

They aren’t looking to market their name, it’s a way they can get money into the club without falling foul of any regulations.

If TTA renamed to St. Andrews and then we sold naming rights would we get pulled up on it?

Because in the short term the club could do with all additional revenue streams maybe?

Them trying to 'market their name' in the UK I assume is just PR rubbish to make the deal look slightly legitimate and not just an owner looking to find other methods of pumping money into a club

Lots of people with a blatant disregard for the apostrophe in our stadium's great name.

Names have been taken.

Hmm.

Naming our stadium Trillion Trophy is laughable isn’t it? The piss take is endless.

I wouldn’t have minded something a bit more sensible.

Why? It'll never be anything other than St Andrews to us? It could have been worse as well - the St Andrews Pampers Arena would have been a bit more apt, maybe? :D
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.
Do any blues fans even call it St Andrews?

I just call it 'down the blues'.

If it puts money in, great - I don't know the details as the site was down, but if was, say, £1million a year for five years, and it went towards a player's fee (amortised), fine. The name? Oh yes, monstrous, but at least we have the ability to take the piss out of ourselves, unlike some other local clubs. I mean, it's not as if we haven't had the practice. :D
The belle of St Trillions
Exactly Tam. I'm really not giving a big fat feck about what they've tagged on to the end of the stadium name, I'm glad they are finding ways to fund us further. It's a bit precious to be worried what inbreds might think, as has been pointed out anyway - it's not us the rest of football is pointing and laughing at*.




*for once
Thanks for keeping us up, Harry.
I really hope Trillion Trophy can leverage great benefits from this lucrative deal that will help them promote all of the good work that they do around the world.

I like it. Sounds ambitious.

This made me laugh far more than it should have.

Very relaxed about this...well done to 'em for keeping 'St Andrew's' first and foremost. Shame Trillion Trophy sounds so daft, but, oh well.

I'm way off the pace on FFP, but if the sponsorship exceeds 'market value' can the surplus money go into areas of the club unrelated to playing, like improving conferencing/hospitality facilities, with a view to improving overall club turnover, without affecting FFP and ultimately helping our FFP position the long run? I probably haven't worded that very well, but s0d it!

Good business decision, for obvious reasons (FFP)

Happy that the powers that be, are pro-active, as against reactive, like the clowns over the expressway.

Still retain "St. Andrews", so it's a (tu) from me, if it brings in revenue.
