German club Westfalia Herne holds a lottery to rename their stadium in winner’s honor

How about Die Spoiler Stadion?

SC Westfalia Herne, a German 5th divsion football team flirting with bankruptcy, have decided to raise some coin by holding a €20 raffle for chance to choose a new name for the club’s 32,000 capacity stadium.

The winner can pick any name they want, unless it’s not offensive, racist, unpronounceable or copied off another club – so no trying to bring back the Wankdorf – and the club promise to adopt it for at least a season.

120 tickets were snaffled in the first three days from buyers in Italy, Switzerland and even America. Everyone else has got until October 24th to throw their hat into the ring via the website or e-mail, with the winner being announced before the club’s home game with FC Wegberg-Beeck.

€20 for the chance to be immortalised in German lower league history. Sounds good. Got any ideas, Spoiler readers?
