The Washington Washington Football Team will change the name and logo, the team announced Monday in a statement.
The new name of the team was not revealed.
This comes days after the team said that a “thorough review” of the name would be conducted. The name has long been denounced by Native American groups as an ethnic slur.
“That review has begun in earnest,” Monday’s statement said. “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 Washington Football Team name and logo upon completion of this review.”
