RED DEVILS RE-NAME STADIUM

Crawley Town's stadium has been re-named as The Checkatrade.com Stadium.

The rebranding of the 5,996-capacity stadium comes as part of a five-year sponsorship deal between the Red Devils, who comete in the Sky Bet League 1, and the online tradespeople directory.

The agreement will see the company's name emblazoned on the stadium and players training shirts in addition to the East Stadium being renamed the Checkatrade.com Stand.

The club's commercial manager, Ewan Dunlop, said: “This is a hugely significant partnership for the football club.”

Some of the money gained from the agreement has been pledged to local community projects as Crawley Borough Council own the venue, and have given the green light for it to be renamed.
