I see Firoka Oxford United Stadium Limited have extended their accounting reference date from September 2021 to December 2021.
It looks like this is to line up with other group companies, however it also means the accounts don't need to be filed for another few months - I wonder if there might be some interesting stadium related disclosures in there?

Brilliant to see engagement with the community!

Look forward to having my say when the next consultation period for non Kidlington residents opens. THIS WILL BE OUR NEXT CALL TO ARMS FELLOW YELLOWS!!

Would be great to see one of those flyers on here if anyone could arrange that? @OUSP Secretary @OxVox perhaps?

The name Community Stadium? (until sponsor maybe changes that). Better than the K**sam of course, but I quite like just 'Stratfield Brake'.

Maybe the main stand will be arch shaped? or even a Wembley-esque arch 😄

Or maybe I'm just looking too much into it. Which is most likely.

Anyway, getting it done is the most important thing right now!

Yeah, and starting direct consultation with the local residents is a huge step forward

You're looking into it too much.

The rationale behind calling it the Community Stadium is twofold. Firstly, because that's what it is, and the club want to get that message out there early. Secondly because naming rights are very lucrative, and we don't want Stratfield Brake to stick too much, otherwise it'll devalue the naming rights when the time comes along to sell them. This is why Spurs' new ground is still known as The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, rather than White Hart Lane. It's a very conscious marketing decision.

Yeah of course I do understand the rationale behind the Community Stadium name.

I was only getting a bit excited in regard to looking into any clues about the stadium within the logo, in response to NorthWestOx's comment.

Let's hope everything goes smoothly first anyway!🤞Nice to see some positive progress though.
