Athletic made a lot more sense. They’re talking about building the whole precinct and I’m sure they could engage other sports. Even if they didn’t Athletic, although still using European names for our ‘culture’ is new for the league and some point of difference. Western and United are both already used. It also takes away a logical use of United for the MSWS bid.
Would honestly prefer “cringey” names that are our own over just recycling names like Unite because Manchester United.
