Manchester City, the English Premiere League club, have renamed their stadium the Etihad Stadium, after signing the largest sponsorship deal in history worth some £400 million pounds with Abu Dhabi’s Etihad Airlines.

All I would note is that they have quite literally renamed their stadium the ‘United Stadium’. I’m sure that this will do down fantastically well with their supporters.
