Bacup Borough FC is proud to announce that it is about to move into an exciting new phase in its illustrious history. From 12 noon on Monday June 17th 2013 the club will be changing its name to Bacup of Rossendale Boro FC. The club, founded in 1875, has only changed its name once previously when it added ‘Borough’ to its previous title of Bacup FC in 1920. Boro were formed before any of the other Rossendale Valley clubs that went on to enjoy semi-professional status. They have watched as Rossendale United (1898), Whitworth Valley and Haslingden have all either folded or dropped out of semi-professional football, most recently observing the sad demise of Rossendale United in 2011 which left them as the ‘last man standing’ in the Valley.

Re: Bacup Borough FC new name.

BBFC = rolls off the tongue.
BoRBFC = doesn't.

Will the players play any better? the fans pay more or the takings go up?
Doubt it.

Why don't they just leave it as it is?

That just made me check that the Press Release wasn't dated April 1st.

It isn't.

Re: Bacup Borough FC new name.

People can call a football club whatever they want but the fans will still stick to what they know.
Blackburn are Rovers, Manchester City are just Citeh, Man U are united and in Bacup, the football club will always be called either Bacup or the boro.
Branding works, re branding in football will always struggle though.
St James's Park becoming the Sports Direct Arena or whatever Mike Ashley though he would call it proves that point.

It is now called St. James' Park again and the Sports Direct logos at the stadium are to be painted out ready for next season.
