Washington Football Team revealing new name, and will not be the 'Wolves'
Jason Wright is not risking a route that “could be dotted with legal hurdles,” therefore revealing the new impartial name for the Washington Football Team.
The Washington Football Team will reveal its new name on February 2.
Wright mentioned that when the team put Wolves on a list of options to fully explore, they stumbled upon a notable challenge: "trademarks held by other teams would limit our ability to make the name our own. And without Wolves, variations like RedWolves wouldn't have been viable either for these and other reasons."
In July 2020, Washington changed its name to the 'Washington Football Team' following the increasing pressure to change its previous name, the Redskins, due to its racist connotations.
