Swinton to be renamed Manchester Lions to broaden appeal of club

Swinton Lions have introduced plans to rebrand as Manchester Lions for the 2020 season.
The Championship club have filed an application for a change of name to the Rugby Football League, although officials insist they will keep their Swinton identity by keeping the very same colours and including the return of the famed’V’ on the blue shirt.
Swinton say the change is needed to capitalise on the 2021 World Cup and also to be sure the club’s fiscal equilibrium by broadening its appeal to a wider audience, together with the City of Manchester Council and Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council acting as hosts.
A statement from the club stated:”This choice is most definitely not for shareholder gain, however against the legitimate need to secure a future of the club and save it from extinction.
“It is worth noting that the board have reversed numerous firm approaches to unite other clubs in the immediate ago but these strategies have been rejected since they were insecure and might do nothing to protect the lineage of the Lions as a standalone historical club.
“The plank firmly feel there is a substantial chance to expand the appeal of Swinton by becoming THE rugby league club of Manchester.”
Swinton, who abandoned their Station Road floor say long-standing plans are unlikely to come to fruition and the team will continue to play at Heywood Road in Sale.
