Rotherham relocating states side to bring in new players

Rotherham have named its new £20 million stadium the New York Stadium in recognition that the new ground was built on the site of a foundry that made New York's distinctive fire hydrants.

Club chairman Tony Stewart explained

''The new stadium name is strongly rooted in more than 150 years of Rotherham's proud history of industry and enterprise. I have had many letters, e-mails and calls from fans with their suggestions. But, over the past few weeks, the support for New York really started to gather momentum.

''We also feel that the name can open doors for the commercial team at Rotherham United,''

''We looking into the possibility of setting up links between Rotherham and New York, USA.''

Rotherham left Millmoor in 2008 and the new stadium should be ready for the 2012-13 season kicks off in August.
