We highlight the football world’s funniest and weirdest venue names
10) Bumthang Stadium
If you’re in Bhutan the name will not get your eye blow lifting, but for the rest of us in the football loving world, bum thang is ah, well, not the name of the place we love to go every week with the whole family. Picture this…Hey mom, going to bum-thang? Oh yeah, sonny!
9) Mitsubishi Forklift (FC Omniworld – Netherlands)
FC Omniworld plays in the Jupiler League and they reside at Mitsubishi Forklift. Yes. This has been their gem stadium since ’05 and we reckon if they’re to go to the Eredivisie they probably need to hire a new names person. But their game might not be too omni seeing they’re currently lying second in their div.
8) The Arnold Schwarzenegger – Sturm Graz (Austria)
Graz in a tribute to its much loved son named their new football venue after the bodybuilder turned Hollywood star turned politician in 1997. All was well until late ’05 when Sturm locals went aghast by the California Governor’s stand on the death penalty. The venue name swiftly changed ending what was within the first position a crazy idea.
7) Dick’s Sporting Goods Park (Colorado Rapids – USA)
Initially proposed to be named Dick’s Stadium, this Colorado Rapids’ house is just 1 of the numerous eye raising names in American sporting planet. In their opinion, Dick’s Sporting Goods Park sounds good for the spot exactly where they sweat it out via the weekend. Yeah.
6) Hunky Dorys Park (Drogheda United – Ireland)
Drogheda (not being confused with Drog headers) was once regarded as the ‘Chelsea of Ireland’ due to their large player purchases which handed them the 2005 FAI Cup and two years later their primary ever league title. Things however went rapidly downhill afterwards, with financial problems plaguing them and they because play within the stadium named immediately after a crisp making business. Their recent league form as well can barely been regarded as hunky dory.
5) Cashpoint Arena (SC Rheindorf Altach – Austria)
You got to give it to the Austrians for being creativity with their venue names. This one bears the brand of sports betting company, with rumors that access is by use of a pin number quite off the mark. It sounds good however, to say you’re going to the Cashpoint arena doesn’t it.
4) Bargain Booze Stadium – England
This can only be in England exactly where boozing is unrivaled.
3) KitKat Crescent – England
The charming English city of York has many to be proud of, like the Nestle Company which in 2005 bailed out the city’s football club. Bootham Crescent was aptly KitKat Crescent after the bailout. Unsurprisingly, the rival football club there is called the Nestle Rowntree Club.
2) The Middelfart Stadium – Denmark
Occasionally misspelled as The Middlefat stadium, this small downtown Danish club has no issue using the name on the spot all the locals love. Maybe it’s the English speaking planet who notices this peculiar title, and maybe inside local language it means something to be proud of?
1) Wankdorf Stadion – Switzerland
This has got to become the wackiest and most cracking football field names of all. How on earth you decide to name your stadium The Wankdorf Stadium is beyond any joke, and even right after the laughter calms down, somebody, truly has to rethink this.
