The STATE of Soccer in WASHINGTON

Will the new women’s professional soccer club in Seattle be called “Seattle Sirens FC?”
Reaction: Fans weigh in on new club, name
That seems like a possibility after an internet domain search led me to www.SeattleSirensFC.com, which currently redirects to Facebook.
A further search indicates that the owner of the registered web address is none other than new club owner Bill Predmore. See the screen cap below.
As for a shirt sponsor, I think we all know the most famous “siren” in Seattle…well..in the world. Turns out there could be a connection here too. We’ve been told that Predmore’s POP agency works with Starbucks, and that they are well acquainted, with offices nearby.
In an interview over at Prost Amerika, Predmore says of the name, which the club has chosen but not yet revealed, “I’m not going to comment on the name or the identity right now. But I grew up in Seattle so I am very familiar with the various themes and their connection to the community here so I’ll say .. what we’re talking about is something I think ultimately the fans will be pleased and be excited about.”
Do you like the name “Sirens,” or do you hope it ends up being something else? Would Starbucks be a cool shirt sponsor? Let me know in the comments section below.
