The idea, 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 are pushing for the change and feel that re-branding would open up global marketing opportunities.

However, supporters keen for the club to retain its identity have protested against the change over the last few years.

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.

The contracts of Liam Rosenior, Paul McShane, Yannick Sagbo, Maynor Figeroa, Steve Harper and Joe Dudgeon all expire at the end of the season while Alex Bruce and Stephen Quinn have been offered new deals with the Tigers.

Regrettably, following relegation we have made the decision to release the majority of those players whose contracts have expired. We would like to place on record our thanks for the service they have given to the club, particularly our two longest serving players Liam Rosenior and Paul McShane. Both players have been outstanding for us and they leave with our very best wishes for their futures. The aim now is to retain as many of the remaining squad as possible and look to add some new faces this summer as we bid to compete at the top end of the Championship and bounce straight back into the top flight.

– Steve Bruce, Hull City

Paul McShane had been at the KC since 2008 when he initially arrived on loan from Sunderland and was a key player in Hull's first season in the Premier League. He scored five goals in 136 appearances. Rosenior played for the Tigers 161 times after arriving on a free in 2010.

Veteran goalkeeper Harper departs having made 31 appearances for the Club while Dudgeon, Sagbo and Figueroa have racked up 127 appearances between them.
