Birmingham City have today announced that they are to change the name of their stadium from St. Andrew’s to St. Andrew’s Trillion Trophy Stadium.
The Blues will be looking to have a more successful time of things next season than they did in 2017/18 with them heavily threatened by relegation for much of the campaign.
Things did improve under Garry Monk, though, with them beating Fulham on the final day to confirm their spot in the second tier for the season coming.
Now, then, they need to start signing players for next season but, instead, the club has announced this new change first for 2018/19:
???? STATEMENT: St. Andrew’s and Wast Hills naming rights

Certainly, it’s not a name that exactly rolls off of the tongue but if it allows the club to generate a bit more money it might be worth doing.
For sure, though, Blues fans and most others for that matter will still refer to the ground by its old name.
You see things like this happening more and more in the modern game and this won’t be the last rebrand of a ground we ever see.
It’s an optimistic name, too, so Blues fans will be hoping a few trophies are on the way in the future, though a trillion might be out of reach…
Thoughts, Blues fans? Let us know below!
