A GERMAN club have found an unusual way to make a stand against the recession – by holding a raffle to rename their stadium.
For Ã¢ÂÂ¬20, anyone can suggest a name for German fifth division side SC Westfalia Herne’s 32,000 capacity – within reason – and the club will use the name for at least one season’s worth of home games.
A spokesman for the club said: “Diese Chance kommt bestimmt nur einmal im Leben: Ã¢ÂÂDer Weg zum Schlossherrn” heiÃÂt die neue auÃÂergewÃÂ¶hnliche Aktion von Westfalia Herne.”
This translates as: “This chance is determined only once in a lifetime: “The road to the castle lord” is the new exceptional action of Westfalia Herne.”
So, potential castle lords, what are you waiting for? E-mail the club at this address.
