Derby have agreed a 10-year deal with the sports drink company worth £7million to the club.

The deal is believed to be one of the biggest independent deals by a club in Football League history.

Derby will play their first game at the newly-named stadium when they take on Blackpool in the Sky Bet Championship live on Sky Sports on Saturday 7th December.

The Rams' president and chief executive, Sam Rush, said: "To ensure that Derby County remains as competitive as possible we need to explore all forms of revenue generation.

"Stadium naming rights is a key asset for the club and we are delighted that we have been able to reach an agreement with iPro.

"iPro is a challenger brand that is looking to gain significant market share and we believe that the partnership works well for both parties.

"This agreement, which we believe to be ground-breaking, is the culmination of a huge amount of work from all parties."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
