'If It's Football, It's Vital'

RUFC - Waterfront, Waterview , Waterside ....

Rotherham United are very near to putting a name to their new stadium which is being built on the old Guest and Chrimes site in the town.

The stadium, which will be ready for the start of next season, is next to the River Don in Rotherham and Millers Chairman, Tony Stewart says that the name could have a 'water theme.`

Speaking to David Beddows of The Advertiser, Mr Stewart said, 'Waterfront, Waterview or Waterside are the favourites at the moment. We like the sound of them and it would be symbolic with the site itself and the history. The ground stands in an area called 'New York` and, by association, there`s a famous old film called 'On the Waterfront` which was set in the Big Apple.

'The stadium could be allied to sponsors. It strikes the right balance between commercial needs and tradition and we would be interested to know what the fans think.`

Mr Stewart said that the club are talking to parties interested in the naming rights as well as hotel and pub chains and retailers who are looking at the land around the stadium which will be developed as phase two of the project.

The Rotherham Advertiser wants you to tell them what your favourite of the three names are and you can do that by emailing paul.rickett@rotherhamadvertiser.co.uk
