Fitting name change as the supporters of the tenant clubs there live in a make-believe universe #Bombers #Norf #Saints :yep ;D.

Word is the Docklands management, as part of boosting the "fan-experience", is considering re-naming and dressing up each entry gate after a Marvel character, as well as having areas for kids to test out their superhero powers (eg: spiderman climbing wall).

As long as no one is doing the Spider-Man because White Ribbon would object to that
