Nickname decision for new Welsh club

New Championship 1 side South Wales are set to come up with a nickname for the club tomorrow.

The favourites, as suggested by fans, are Celts, Phoenix and Scorpions, and the board are currently considering all three options ahead of a decision.

Director Mark Rowley said: “Our favourites are Celts, Phoenix and Scorpions, all of which were suggested by fans on internet message boards. All three have their merits, Celts has tradition in the area and fans will already have songs with that name in, Phoenix has a rising from the ashes connotation while Scorpions is something brand new and original and we Welsh always play with a sting in our tale.”

The newly formed club, who will play their home matches out of Neath RFC, open their inaugural campaign with a home game against former Super League club, Workington Town, at The Gnoll on Sunday 28 February (kick-off 2pm).

Match admission prices per game for anywhere in the ground are just £8 for adults and £4 for concessions (under 16s, students and seniors) but for the ten-game season, season tickets will cost just £60 for adults and £30 for all concessions giving fans a 25% saving.

Fans will be able to order their tickets early in January.
