The news has been welcomed by fans who have fought a long-running battle to keep the name - but will disappoint owner Assem Allam who believes the change would generate more money by helping them tap into a global market.

Hull City issue statement over name change bid

Hull City football club have issued a statement regarding the FA council's decision to reject a recommendation to change the club's name to Hull Tigers.

"The club acknowledges the FA Councils decision with regards to our name change application.

We always knew that following a change to the FA's policy the chances of changing the name were slim but we also feel it is important to fight for what you believe in and we believe that being called Hull Tigers would be the best strategy for the future.

We will be taking some time away from the Club to consider our options and we will make no further comment until we have come to a conclusion."

The Council’s decision – carried by a 69.9 per cent vote of its members – came after a recommendation from The FA’s Membership Committee.

The Council, which is made up of representatives from across football, fully considered the recommendation in reaching its decision.

The name change, which was first mooted in August 2013, has previously been rejected by the Football Association.

However, Hull City owners were able to get that verdict in 2014 quashed and call for the controversial proposals to be reconsidered.

Hull owners Dr Assem Allam and his son Ehab were pushing for the change and felt that re-branding would open up global marketing opportunities.

Ian Waterson from Hull City Supporters Trust says he is relieved and hopes this is now the line in the sand.

The Tigers topped the likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Manchester United in the Football Supporters’ Federation’s Away Fans Survey, which was completed by thousands of supporters who rated their visit based on categories such as stadium layout, concourse facilities, sightlines and safety and security.

Visiting fans gave their KC Stadium experience an average score of 7.79, putting the Tigers out in front of second-placed Southampton and well ahead of the rest.

We are really pleased that supporters from other Premier League clubs chose to vote for Hull as their best away day for last season.

Our marketing team have gone to great lengths to improve the matchday experience in general over the past two years and a big part of this has been personalising the away end to make travelling fans feel comfortable when they visit us.
