NFL side Washington have officially dropped their 'Redskins' name and logo, prompted by pressure from the Native American community and team sponsors.
The franchise launched a review of the team name after multiple sponsors wrote to owner Daniel Snyder threatening to remove signing and end financial agreements, including the stadium naming rights deal with FedEx.
"As part of this process, we want to keep our sponsors, fans and community apprised of our thinking as we go forward.
"Today, we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review. วอลเลย์บอล
"Dan Snyder and Coach Rivera are working closely to develop a new name and 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."
The franchise began using the Redskins nickname in 1933, when it was based in Boston and previously called the Braves. Team owner George Preston Marshall moved the club to Washington in 1937.
