Our suggested name for the new T20 franchise?
The idea is for a city based competition, if the team is based in Leeds then surely Leeds should be in the name.
There's more than enough people in the Leeds area to fill the stadium if they get the marketing right.
The majority of people who don't live in the 8 host cities can support who they like.
