Washington Football Team Picks Temporary Name as it Rebrands

Brock Fritz Headshot

The NFL team in Washington, D.C., will go by the “Washington Football Team” until a new name is adopted.

The team announced the temporary rebrand Thursday on Twitter, while ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that, “This is not a final renaming and rebranding for the team; this is the name it wants to use until pending adoption of a new name at some point in the future.”

The franchise, which moved from Boston to Washington, D.C., in 1937, was known as the Redskins from 1933 until earlier this month. On July 13, the team released a statement “announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo.”
