Washington football team to change nickname


It looks like the Washington Redskins will get a new name.The Redskins plan to announce on Monday that the team will withdraw their nickname, according to Ben Fischer of the Sports Business Journal.

The report comes less than two weeks after FedEx – the Washington stadium title sponsor – asked the team to change its name.

Fischer adds that a new nickname is not expected immediately as branding issues are pending.

On July 2, 2020, Nike appeared to be removing all Redskins equipment from its online store. The remaining 31 NFL teams were listed and a search for “Redskins” produced no results.
