Hmm, so I've been at Messina for 11 years and have become a club legend having won Serie A for the previous 3 seasons and now the time has come to build a new stadium and yet despite the club having a whole number of legends to choose from including myself, they choose to call it the highly creative name 'Messina Stadium'. What's the criteria to have a stadium named after you? I always thought it was a near cert. if you are a legend when the club builds a new ground. Evidently not...

From what I know, you have to request a new stadium - maybe along with being a club legend - and it gets named after you.

On FM13, my board built a new stadium (without me asking) named 'Shrewsbury Stadium'. My friend, playing as Tranmere, asked for a new stadium and it was called 'Griffiths Stadium'.

I took a team from beyond the dankest pits of the English leagues to the Premiership and Champions league glory, and the new stadium was simply the "Hampton & Richmond Stadium". I was a bit disappointed but it happens. I did ask for the new stadium, though this was FM11 or 12, I can't remember now.

Asking for the stadium makes no difference to the name, its just purely down to what the board decide at the time, sometimes you will get it named after you, other times it will be other legends, or it can be as happened, a more generic name.

Use lnc file to temporarily change your club's short name before the board decides to build a new stadium, and the stadium will be called <what ever your club's short name is> Stadium. :D

On previous games I've had the Rush stadium, New Anfield, Liverpool stadium, and the Dalglish stadium. Never had my name though. I'm more than happy to have my statue standing next to Shanks.

That's crazy!

You must put many hours into this game, i've only managed a save up until 2022.

You've got some going on nearly 100 years!

My Arsenal save in FM13 changed the stadium name to Keay Park if I remember rightly, went up to 2035 or there abouts in that save. It's a pretty rad feature.

I once had one of my stadiums named the Jogi-Löw-Stadium, while Löw was still in office, in 2015.

He did wone the World Cup with Germany 2014, I still found it strange and a bit out of place that you would name a stadium after somebody who is still in office. To be honest, not sure if anybody would name a stadium after a current manager. Too much risk that the manager makes some blatant mistakes in the following season, gets ousted in a shameful way (right after being called "hero for lifetime") and then what? You have to rename the stadium?
