SWALEC seems to be the exception. Quite a few people on here use that name, possibly as it's effectively a new ground on the site of a previous one.

It's always been a bugbear of mine that the media seem to religiously call The Oval "The Kia Oval" (and before that "The Brit Oval" and "The Foster's Oval" etc.)

Last weekend at The Oval with a group of friends, one of them departed with the sarcastic comment "see you next month at 'The Probiz'", which suggests that the worst sounding sponsored names have a greater chance of subliminally infiltrating their way into popular useage.
