Chelsea striker Didier Drogba will have the honour of seeing a stadium named after him in France, according RMC.

The French fourth division club Levallois Sporting has announced that its new stadium will be named after Didier Drogba during the inauguration ceremony on September 29 in the town of Levallois-Perret near Paris.

Drogba had played youth football with Levallois when he was 15, before moving to Le Mans in 1997.

The club said Drogba would be present at the ceremony. (

Quite an honour for Didier Drogba, it is not very often that a player has a stadium named in his honour, and this is a very rare case seeing as the player only ever represented the club at youth level.

No word on the actual stadium name as of yet, but I would go for “The Drogbarena.”
