Sirens has today announced that it has entered into an exciting new formal partnership with the University of the West of Scotland (UWS), meaning that next season they will be known as the UWS Sirens.

Professor Craig Mahoney, UWS Principal & Vice-Chancellor, commented: “The Sirens are a truly outstanding group of high-performance athletes from across the world, who have had a significant and positive impact on women’s sport in Scotland, and who have acted as exemplary role models for all.

“We are extremely proud of our hugely successful association with Netball Scotland, which allowed us to support the launch of Scotland’s first ever semi-professional netball team, the Sirens, as their Principal Partner in 2016.

“The overwhelming success of this partnership and our new status as the formal title partner of the UWS Sirens allows us to cement our emerging reputation for excellence in sport.

“UWS’ revolutionary approach to investing in women’s sport demonstrates our dedication to challenging the status quo and daring to be different through our ground breaking commitment to the development of the performance sport agenda for women in Scotland.

“We believe the UWS Sirens will continue to be excellent role models and play a key part in shifting inequalities in sports

“We share the Siren’s ambition in establishing Scottish netball as among the world’s best – the team’s debut season was hugely meaningful for everyone involved, establishing this new team as a force to be reckoned with in professional netball.

“We are excited about the future, and can‘t wait to see UWS Sirens continuing to change the game for women and sport across Scotland and beyond.

“Together we will dream, believe and achieve.”
