Apparently No. 7 was originally going to be called ‘Dick’s Stadium’ ..😱

Austrian football really has taken every Schilling available. The names are hilarious, closest we got here was Jimmy Hill wanting to change Coventry City to Coventry Talbot. 


The Wankdorf stadium is so named because it is in the Wankdorf area of Bern, so very similar origins to our own Boundary Park.

 

Graz’s stadium used to be named after Arnie because he’s from there. Then after some controversy involving a death row prisoner, when he was Governor of California, there was some debate in Graz about renaming stuff named after him, including the football stadium. Arnie ended the debate himself by refusing Sturm Graz the right to use his name.

Perhaps with our Australian connections we could get Dickens Brewery involved.

Famed for their Cider, ‘The Dickens Cider Stadium’.

Reminds me of the 70's literature student when being asked what they thought of Dickens replied "I don't know I've not been to one yet !"

 

................sorry.

In the 1960s, it could have been the Bates Motel.

 

You don't see many with the first name Norman these days, actually I can't remember the last one who played for us?
