Councillors have voted unanimously in favour of renaming Derry City's Brandywell Stadium after the late Ryan McBride.
The 27-year-old footballer died suddenly in March of last year.
A consultation on the proposal to change the name of the stadium started in April.
There were 6,549 valid responses to the public consultation.
71% of the vote was in favour of renaming the stadium in honour of McBride, who had been captain of the Premier Division team.
