Newcastle have confirmed their stadium will be renamed sportsdirect.com @ St James' Park with immediate effect.

Managing director Derek Llambias said the famous ground would bear the name of owner Mike Ashley's company until the end of the season, when naming rights would be sold on the open market.
Llambias said: "We will showcase Sports Direct until the end of the season. I'm sure we're going to get a sponsor in for next season."
Although the club insist the St James' Park name will not be lost, the decision to sell rights has met with opposition from fans after it was announced on Monday.
"We could have worded it better, and that's why we came out yesterday to explain what we're trying to achieve," Llambias said.
"With the renaming it was always going to be whatever brand it was, at St James' Park. For the remainder of this season, we already have sportsdirect.com on the Gallowgate so we'd like to take that branding through the rest of the stadium."
Ashley has suffered huge losses since buying Newcastle in 2007, paying £134 million up front plus another £120 million to pay down the club's debts. He claims the club is still costing him £20m every year.
Ashley is still looking to sell the club, and last month cut his asking price from £100 million to £80m, although a proposed takeover by businessman Barry Moat fell through.
Despite chaos off the pitch the team, managed by Chris Hughton, top the Championship with 30 points from their first 15 games.

He's destroyed the club, thought we had a muppet when Sheperd was in charge. Something new every week keeps us in the press for all the wrong reasons.

People in Leeds are southern to me, But Arsenals ground is a new ground and doesn't have the history of SJP. You ever imagine Man Ure or Liverpool flogging the rights to Anfield or Old Trafford?

Man City moved to a posh new ground before they became mega rich., they saw no need to sell the grounds name. I just think fat mike has gone one step to far with this. He just keeps upping the anti to see how far he can push us.

He'll probably spit his dummy out after the protest and say he's selling the club again. :-D

The bit i find most odd is he's going through all this grief for just £6m which in footy terms is peanuts.

The blokes an idiot and can't be trusted. When I do go to SJP I watch the football I don't spend a penny in the ground. I won't buy from his chav tastic sports direct. He'll take this club to the wall

Ridiculous name - no-one will use it. Everyone will just keep on calling it St James' (Park).

Haha - free with a new pair of trainers!:giggle:
Your first act should be to see if Kevin Keegan wants to be manager again instead of getting the court case costs.
