RCD Mallorca’s home stadium will now be known as the Estadi Mallorca Son Moix after the LaLiga football club agreed a new sponsorship agreement with the Consell de Mallorca. 

The ground had previously been known as the Visit Mallorca Estadi through an agreement with the island’s tourism board, but the club announced in August that this deal would be scrapped amid concerns about over-promotion of the province.

Rangers FC has revealed plans that will expand capacity at Ibrox through a project focused on improving the stadium’s accessibility and facilities for disabled supporters. The plans were disclosed at the Glasgow club’s annual general meeting, with last year’s AGM having seen deputy chairman John Bennett label the current provision for disabled fans as “unacceptable”. A project team has since been assembled to carry out a detailed feasibility study, with work to focus on Ibrox’s Broomloan and Copland Road stands.

Twickenham Stadium has furthered its sustainability efforts by introducing carbon labelling across its match day and non-match day menus. 

The move is designed to put “decision making power” into the hands of delegates, and allows for feedback for organisers to make sustainable decisions. 

The introduction of carbon labelling is the latest in a series of sustainability-focused innovations at Twickenham. Others have included the circular kitchen concept and ‘self-destructing’ plastic cups.

Stadion Miejski im. Henryka Reymana, the home of Polish Ekstraklasa football club Wisła Kraków, is set to undergo renovation work in order to fulfil its role as a key venue for the 2023 European Games. 

The City of Kraków, owner of the venue, has awarded a contract for the work to construction company Eiffage Polska Budownictwo. Efforts to select a contractor commenced in July, but three prior rounds of talks failed to provide a winning bid. 

However, Eiffage Polska Budownictwo has now succeeded with an offer that values the project at over PLN98m. Delays in the process mean that the project now faces a narrow window for completion. May 31 has been set as the completion date, with Kraków and the region of Małopolska due to host the third edition of the European Games from June 21 to July 2.
