Stoke City have announced that the Britannia Stadium will be no more as of next season after the club agreed a lucrative naming-rights deal with their shirt sponsors, bet365.
As a result of the new six-year deal, the Potters' ground will be known as the 'bet365 (Gamble Responsibly) Stadium' from the start of the 2016/17 campaign after being sponsored by the now-defunct Britannia Co-Operative Bank since it was built 19 years ago.
It's definitely the end of term at the Britannia Stadium. Following the pasting Michael Owen's Merc received, Stoke's squad have now allegedly turned to leaving dead animals in each other's lockers. Kenwyne Jones reportedly went to his locker today only to find a pig's head inside. The finger of suspcion imeediately pointed to Republic of [.

The pressure on Newcastle manager Alan Pardew cranked up as his side were beaten 1-0 by Stoke at a rain-drenched Britannia Stadium.
Newcastle were slow to react at the back as Peter Crouch headed in from the lively Victor Moses' cross in the 15th minute. And while there were other moments of defensive uncertainty from the visitors, they rarely looked like finding an equaliser, with Potters goalkeeper Asmir Begovic only really being called upon to make one decent save, keeping out Daryl Janmaat.
It's a crucial game tonight at the Britannia Stadium, and the best result for both Alan Pardew and Newcastle would be a good win. Alan Pardew I'm carrying some scars We moved off the bottom of the table yesterday, when West Brom beat Burnley 4-0, and Burnley's goal difference became worse than Newcastle's [.
Stoke were a mediocre side yesterday at the Britannia Stadium, but after beating Newcastle 1-0 with a fluke goal from Erik Pieters in the 42nd minute, that was enough to haul Stoke to only 3 points behind Newcastle in the league, and they could yet catch us, and then we'd finish in 10th place. Erik [.
Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini is getting into the swing of Premier League stereotypes by claiming he is concerned about Stoke's aerial threat ahead of today's match. The Chilean's side face the Potters at the Britannia Stadium today. City have looked vulnerable from set-pieces this season, so Pellegrini seems to be in no doubt as [.
Spurs manager Andre Villas Boas is hoping his side will be rewarded for their late winner against Stoke with a slip-up from north London rivals Arsenal. After seeing his side beat the Potters, Villas Boas was hoping that the Gunners will drop points against either Wigan or Newcastle in their final two games of the [.
1. QPR and Reading managed to reduce the relegation dogfight to a whimper. Both teams went down after their 0-0 draw on Sunday; neither side seemed particularly keen to do anything to avoid that fate. 2. Robin Van Persie managed to turn his return to Arsenal into a relatively successful afternoon. It wasn't looking promising [.

Stoke City will host Premier League leaders Manchester United on Sunday at the Britannia Stadium in what should be a tough encounter for both sides involved. Stoke City are up against it with a powerful Red Devils side who will likely look to finish their 2012/13 campaign on a high note.

When Rafa Benitez was appointed interim manager of the Chelsea Football Club, he was hoping that the faithful at Stamford Bridge would forgive him for past transgressions and that his style of soccer would win the fans over quickly.

Liverpool and Stoke City will both look to build on their recent results when the sides face off on Boxing Day at the Britannia Stadium. The Potters home is one of the toughest places to play in the English Premier League, but the Reds have a knack for getting the best of their opponents at home lately.
Stoke City will look to extend their eight-game unbeaten run in the Premier League as they entertain a Liverpool side brimming with confidence. The Potters have drawn their last three games and boss Tony Pulis will be looking to build on a hard-fought draw with Tottenham, especially since the Reds are yet to win at the Britannia Stadium in the top-flight.
In the Premier League on Wednesday, Geoff Cameron got the stat for Stoke City who came back to beat Newcastle 2-1 at the Britannia Stadium. Trailing from the 47th minute, Stoke's Jonathan Walers equalized in the 81st and Cameron Jerome scored the winner four minutes later. The referee booked Cameron in the 59th minute.
Stoke City Bos Tony Pulis is pleased with his squad's act as they make champions Man City to a 1-1 force at the Britannia Stadium. HTTP://news.bbcimg.co.uk/media/image/62918000/jpg/_62918418_mmpulisint.jpg

Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud has refuted Real Madrid manager Jose Mourinho's assertion that
competing with La Liga duo Real and Barcelona is the most difficult challenge for any team, arguing
that the Premier League remains the toughest in the world.
Mourinho spent much of the summer defending the competitiveness of La Liga, insisting that the
quality of his Madrid side and their Catalan rivals is superior to all others in the world, not
merely their current Spanish competitors.
Second match of the new season, second draw of the new season. We are still level on the goal
difference chart because we've neither scored any goal nor have we conceded any. Not so good for
the first one but particularly pleasing for the second one.
After coming from behind to claim a win against league newcomers Southampton in last weekend's
opener, Roberto Mancini's men found themselves trailing once again when Martin Å krtel scored with
a powerful header from a Steven Gerrard's corner in the 34 minutes.
Stoke City boss Mark Hughes is planning to raid former club Manchester City to sign striker John Guidetti. The Potters are being linked with a Â£5.5m bid for the Swedish youngster. The 21-year-old was, and perhaps still is, considered one of City's brightest talents. But now into his early twenties and yet to play for [.
New Stoke City manager Mark Hughes has asked supporters for patience as he attempts to get the team playing a different style of football. The brand of football deployed by previous boss Tony Pulis was criticised by opposition managers, most notably Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, and often by the Britannia Stadium faithful, too.
Stoke fans hoping that the departure of former manager Tony Pulis might lead to a more exciting brand of football being played at the Britannia Stadium have been hit by the news that Mark Hughes has been appointed as their new boss. Hughes will be officially unveiled as the new Potters manager at 11am this [.
Michael Owen is set to make his Stoke debut at home to Manchester City on Saturday. Goals are unlikely to come as easily as last time he put in a decent shift at the Brit, but at least he won't have Neville Southall to contend with this time. The Potters' stadium was the setting for [...]
Sky Sports sources understand Stoke have tabled a Â£4million bid for Liverpool midfielder Charlie
Adam has struggled to make an impact at Anfield since joining from Blackpool last summer and looks
unlikely to be part of manager Brendan Rodgers' first-team plans this season.
The 26-year-old, who cost the Reds a reported Â£6.
James Collins scored a hat trick at the impregnable fortress, the Britannia stadium which saw
Arsenal labour to a scoreless draw over the weekend. Seven goals were scored, three in extra time,
as Stoke came back twice to level. Collins had the last answer in the 118th minute right after
Peter Crouch equalized for the Potters.
Geoff Cameron may have spent most of this past week in the United States completing paperwork to
finalize his move to Stoke City, but that did not stop him from earning a start and making an
impressive debut for the Potters.Â
Three days after arriving to England, Cameron put forth an impressive 90-minute outing in his
first Stoke appearance as he helped the club hold Arsenal to a scoreless draw at Britannia
Brendan Rodgers reflected on Liverpool's 3-1 defeat against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium and reiterated calls for his side to be more consistent in their play. The Reds took the lead after two minutes against Tony Pulis's side on Wednesday night; however, Jonathan Walters equalized before Kenwyne Jones added a second and Walters made it 3-1.
The final day of the European transfer meant moving day for several veteran players of the U.S.
Men's National Team, with deals being decided literally at the last minute. The changes represent a
big opportunity, including moves to bigger leagues, bigger clubs, and European Cup competition.

It was good to see Nile Ranger make his 59th appearance for Newcastle last night at the Britannia Stadium, when he came on as a sub late in the game for goalscorer Papiss Cisse, since it was eighteen months ago that he made his 58th appearance for Newcastle United.
