Thursday 12 Dec 2013
Hull City have asked to change their playing name to Hull Tigers from 2014-15

The FA can confirm that it has received a request from Hull City to change its playing name to Hull Tigers from season 2014/15. 

Requests to change a playing name of a club are considered under FA Rule A3 (l) and require the prior written permission of the FA Council. 

As part of the evaluation of the request a consultation process will be undertaken with various stakeholders including supporter groups. 

At present The FA is not able to provide a timescale for the completion of the consultation process and does not expect to make any further comment until the assessment of the request has been completed.
