Washington to call itself the Washington Football Team for 2020🏈

Washington’s NFL team (Washington Football Team) is in the process of rebranding on the fly after they announced a few weeks ago that they would retire the “Redskins” nickname for good.

Washington’s NFL team is in the process of rebranding on the fly after they announced a few weeks ago that they would retire the “Redskins” nickname for good. Typically, a rebranding effort takes months or years of work, but Washington is preparing to kick off a new season in less than two months. With that in mind, the team officially adopted a placeholder name on Thursday.
  • The Redskins will be called the Washington Football team

    They are now the “Washington Football Team”

  • The placeholder will be used until the team officially adopts a new, permanent nickname in the future
  • They’ll keep their burgundy and gold color scheme and their uniforms will largely look the same in 2020. The original team logo on the helmet will be replaced by a gold player number decal
  • The team will be seeking feedback from players, alumni, fans, sponsors and the community while deciding on a new name
  • They’re still in the process of scrubbing the old logo/name and hope to be rid of it in the next 50 days
  • To make your football bets here!

The Washington Football Team

As you’d probably imagine, people had plenty of jokes about the lack of creativity in “Washington Football Team” but, hey, it beats continuing to use the old name. Now they can take their team settling on the next era, making sure they get it right this time. And let’s not pretend there aren’t a ton of soccer teams out there calling themselves “FC.” It’s not an unprecedented level of lazy. That’s all I’m saying.

It’s also worth noting that the team will be selling “Washington Football Team” merch in the NFL Shop this season. Why would anyone buy that, you ask? Why not just wait until the new name is announced? Well, it’s possible that some fans don’t want to wear their “Redskins” merch anymore but it’s also possible that the “Football Team” merch will have high novelty/parody value during a limited run.
Overall, a pretty smart business decision by a team that isn’t quite known for smart business decisions!
