This announcement is the end of our name journey beginning with an intensive fan engagement initiative to find a name for the team which resulted in our fans submitting more than 1,500 suggestions for the team's name. A shortlist of the six of the most-submitted names was identified with the team ownership then making the final name selection which will be announced on Tuesday.
We are welcoming our fans and supporters to join us and to come out and chant, sing and share in our excitement.
