It was revealed on Tuesday evening that West Ham’s new London Stadium home has finally found a naming rights sponsor.

Sky News broke the news that Vodafone were on the verge of agreeing a £20m deal to be the former Olympic Stadium’s naming rights partner.

The deal will supposedly be worth £3.3m-a-year, and every single penny will go to stadium owners LLDC. West Ham won’t see any of it.

It is now being widely claimed that the London Stadium will now be called the Vodafone Arena, which isn’t as bad as some of the rumoured alternatives that have been spread around the internet since last August.

However, that comes as little comfort to the fans who have quite rightly pointed out that although it’s not a bad name, it’s not the same as playing in a stadium called the Boleyn Ground or Upton Park.

When the news broke last night, fans instantly took to Twitter to give their thoughts on it.

The general feeling appears to be that although it’s not ideal, it’s not the end of the world either.

Here’s how the fans reacted to the Vodafone news on Twitter…
