NFL's Washington Redskins Are Changing Their Team Name

Just a few days after it was revealed that the Washington Redskins would be reviewing their team name, it has been announced that the name will be officially changing this season.

The name change decision came after growing pressure from sponsors, including Fed Ex who has naming rights to their football field in Maryland, and Native American groups who disapproved of the name for decades.

“Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review,” the team said in a press release. The team did not announce their new name at this time, but added that the coach and owner of the team are “working closely to develop a new name an design approach that will enhance the standing of our proud, tradition rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.”
