Because "Wanderers" would be used in the same way "Yankees" and "Red Sox" would be used.

City Name/nickname or mascot.

For example: Oklahoma Wanderers

That doesn't mean that it has to be a nickname. Have you ever heard of Bolton Wanderers? Thats their official name.

Yes and there is nothing wrong with that. A football teams name is its name.
