THis is terrific news.
Mansfield Town has secured major new financial investment from a Kazakhstan based petro-chemical company.
John Radford "I am delighted to have found a financial partner who shares our vision for future success at Mansfield Town Football Club. I have been negotiating this deal with Ivor Maravich for some time and I can now share the good news with the fans"
He added "The deal with Mr Maravich is substantial and involves the naming rights to our stadium for the next five years"
From the start of 2017/18 season, the ground will be renamed after Mr Maravich's company and will become the PROLAF OIL stadium.
Mr Radford went on to say "the extra financial investment will enable the club to improve th facilities at the stadium as well as to improve our player purchasing power"
