Derry City's Brandywell Stadium to be renamed in memory of Ryan McBride

The late footballer died in March 2017.

Brandywell Stadium is to be named after 27-year-old Ryan McBride, who died suddenly last year.

The change of name was motivated by a consultation on the proposal, which according to RTÉ started in April.

The public consultation had 6,549 valid responses to change the name in his memory.
