New name for Blackburn Rovers ground?

INDIAN owners Venky’s could rename Blackburn Rovers’ ground after their chicken firm.
The Rovers ground has been named Ewood Park since 1882, and Ewood Bridge bfeore that – but poultry entrepreneursVenky’s would like to rename the ground in their honour or go free ranging and sell the naming rights to the highest bidder.
Company chairwoman Anuradha Desai said: “We need to improve the brand Blackburn Rovers.
“The management thus far has done a good job but has not been proactive enough. We are looking to change that.
“Arsenal named their stadium The Emirates after their main sponsors. Ours could be called the Venky’s Stadium or could adopt the name of another sponsor.”
