The Football Association have announced that they will consult Hull City supporters before making a decision regarding the club's proposal to change its name to Hull Tigers.
The FA released a statement saying: "Requests to change a playing name of a club are considered under FA Rule A3 (l) and require the prior written permission of the FA Council.
"As part of the evaluation of the request a consultation process will be undertaken with various stakeholders including supporter groups.
"At present The FA is not able to provide a timescale for the completion of the consultation process and does not expect to make any further comment until the assessment of the request has been completed."
A protest group City Till We Die have been vocal about their discontent regarding the proposal, stating that move could damage the history and tradition of the Premier League outfit.
