Manchester City have been given permission to rename their stadium and William Hill think that current shirt sponsors Etihad are the front runners, offering 6/4 that they win the rights to rename Eastlands. The UAE Tourism Board, UAE Interact, are the 4/1 second favourites with Umbro the 10/1 third favourites.
Given Roberto Mancinis penchant for scarves and hats, Hills are offering 25/1 that Armani buy the rights and 33/1 Versace do. 100/1 is offered for money-bags City to play in the Wonga Stadium next season!
Etihad are the clear favourites but should Manchester City ever need a payday loan, maybe renaming Eastlands the Wonga Stadium, could help them out, said Hills spokesman Joe Crilly.
