Stoke City Football Club have finalised a deal to take full ownership of the Britannia Stadium.
It will still be known as the Britannia Stadium
It has announced the completion of a £6m deal to buy shares in the stadium owned by the city council and Stoke-on-Trent Regeneration.
The club has paid £4.5m to the council, which contributed £3.1m a decade ago, for its shares.
Chairman Peter Coates told the club's official website the deal can be a "catalyst" for improvements to be made.
He said they will look "at a string of measures" to improve facilities further at the 10-year-old stadium.
It will continue to be known as the Britannia Stadium and guarantees will be put in place to secure its future as a football stadium.
