Celtic Dragons change name to Cardiff Dragons

Celtic Dragons change name to Cardiff Dragons

The only Welsh team in the prestigious Netball Super League has refreshed its brand name, with the Celtic Dragons now identifying as the Cardiff Dragons.

Vicki Sutton, CEO of Welsh Sports Association (WSA) member Wales Netball, is also the Chief Executive of Cardiff Dragons.

She commented:

“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.”

The Netball Super League is the UK’s top-level, elite netball competition featuring ten teams from England, Wales, and Scotland. The first 20 rounds of the regular season run during the first half of the calendar year and culminates in semi-finals and a Grand Final to determine the league champions.

Cardiff Dragons recently announced their squad for the 2024 season, with each squad member describing what they love about Cardiff as part of the reveals. You can find the official squad announcement here, and head to Cardiff Dragons socials to see what the Dragons stars love about the city!
