Washington’s NFL Team officially drops “Redskins” logo

After mounting pressure from sponsors, investors and activists, the Washington Redskins have formally abandoned their team nickname, which dates to 1933.

On July 3, the NFL team had announced a review of the name and logo, which was widely interpreted as a signal that they would finally be changing.

“Today we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review,” the team said Monday in a statement.

Owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera, the statement added, “are working closely to develop a new name and design approach that will enhance the standing of the proud, tradition-rich franchise and inspire our sponsors, fans and community for the next 100 years.”
