Wales’ only team in the prestigious Netball Super League has undergone a brand name refresh, and from today the Celtic Dragons will identify as the Cardiff Dragons.
Vicki Sutton, CEO, Cardiff Dragons said: “This name change has been six months in the making and while Celtic Dragons has existed since the founding of the league (2005) and it has certainly served us well, there were several reasons behind the change.
“Cardiff is where we train, and where we compete, it’s our HQ and home. Cardiff is a growing hub of technology and innovation for which we want to be at the forefront of, and the city itself is a strong brand we want to use to enhance our own profile.
“We’re proud of our Celtic Dragons history, but it’s time for us to make some new stories as the Cardiff Dragons. We’ll be announcing our exciting 2024 season squad next week, and as part of the reveals we asked each member of the team what they love about Cardiff to showcase the affection we all have for the city we call home.”
