The Washington Football Team will continue to be known as the Washington Football Team through the 2021 season, and then a new name and logo are coming in 2022.

Washington Football Team President Jason Wright told Nicki Jhabvala of the Washington Post that a new name and logo will be revealed in early 2022.

The team’s colors, which have been burgundy and gold throughout franchise history, will remain in place.

Washington has hired a branding organization that is helping it determine the right name and logo, and is conducting surveys and focus groups of fans in the effort.

  1. I guess they have the name picked but just want to wait until their season is over. If that’s the case, they could probably do it around mid October

  2. Can’t wait to see what all the millenials in this branding organization come up with.

    I’m sure it won’t be 100% terrible and everyone will be 100% happy.

  3. All the people that think WFT is a good name probably have dogs named “Dog” or cats named “Cat.”

  4. I suspect whatever name they choose will work just fine, given the amount of market research they are doing. It’s the logo that may disappoint. There is an art and a science to getting that right on the first try–and I don’t think they test the logo as much as the name with the fanbase.

  5. I think a large percentage of those who are down with keeping Football Team are just exhausted from yet another drawn out, multi-year project/change that is oh-so-common with pretty much any issue that is addressed by the NFL these days. Practically nothing can ever just be done and stay done in a quick fashion.

  6. I think this is awesome. I’m not a fan of Snyder’s, but the Washington franchise is a huge part of the NFL. Great team colors, too. I can’t wait! Better to look forward than back. Hail to the Team!

  7. Washington earthworms.

    Considering they are spineless for cowering to the cancel culture.

  8. Kudos to scubasteve. I like the current WFT name and I have a cat named Puppy.

  9. I hope it still has a strong Native American theme and look. I’ll never understand how erasing Native American names and logos somehow respects their culture but naming our schools and sports teams after them all of a sudden doesn’t. I see no proof that this younger newer generation is the authority on what everybody else grew up with. So keep the Native American theme with a new name and look and keep the colors too. That’s better than just removing more Native American culture from our every day lives.

    What’s wrong with naming your dog ‘dog’s. I think Deeogee is a neat sounding name.

  11. The Native American theme and/or look are non-starters. The league and the team don’t want more controversy and to go through this process again a few years down the road. A clean break is what is needed.

  12. scubasteve, I think the WFT name is acceptable, but I don’t own a dog or a cat.

  13. Anyone have a guess? I’m thinking Washington Warriors. They can keep the same logo

  14. My friends, family, and I voted for Sentinels. This name is inspired from the movie “The Replacements.” Washington Sentinels sounds great. They can do a burgundy/ gold version of the uniform. Once a year they can sport the uniforms from “The Replacements.” WFT was just a placeholder until a real name is chosen. Please make it Sentinels!!!!!

  15. Sentinels is a great name. But I could live with Warriors, Generals, Redwolves, and Federals. Please get this right.

  16. The Washington Dans. It works for the Buffalo Bills, doesn’t it? Same with the Cleveland Browns, named after Paul Brown. What better way to show gratitude and respect for one of the NFL’s most beloved owners. They could use a head-shot of of Mr Snyder’s smiling face as the new logo. It’ll be awesome. You’ll get use to it in no time.

  17. I am dearly hoping they announce that Washington Football Team is a great name on so many levels and that they are staying with that one as the best choice.

  18. No matter what the new name or logo is some people are not gonna like it and they will have something negative to say about it!!!

  19. New name Washington Team Football – Can’t wait to see WTF as tge shortend team name ion the scoreboard
