Supporters of Nürnberg want to rename their stadium from sponsor name to historical name.


Supporters of FC Nuremberg (in German: Nürnberg) want to change name on their stadium to something more historic - Max-Morlock-Stadion.

The name come from one of their greatest players Max Morlock. In 1995, just after he passed away, they renamed the square outside Frankenstadion to "Max-Morlock-Platz" in his honour.

In 2006, a majority of fans voted in favor of renaming the Frankenstadion itself into "Max-Morlock-Stadion", but the city of Nürnberg instead won a sponsorship deal with a local bank, which included renaming the stadium EasyCredit-Stadion after one of that bank's financial products.

The fan scene of Nuremberg never agreed with this name, and have for a long time now led a demonstration against the stadium name Easycredit-Stadion. Even some away fans support the champaign and displayed banners.

They want their stadium be named Max-Morlock-Stadion!
