The Washington football team is continuing its process of finding a new identity by turning to the opinions of its season ticket holders.
In a letter sent to the latter, obtained by NBC Sports, the team asks them to vote among a few names likely to be the next in the organization.
“Among our priorities for the next year, one of the most important is to find a new name, a logo and an identity for our franchise, it is written in the letter signed by the president of the team, Jason Wright.
« We want your opinion on the names that are most meaningful to you, the concepts that represent what you love about this organization and what this team means to you. »
After a long process, the United States National Capital Team narrowed the list of submitted possibilities to over a dozen names.
Options include the names Monarchs, Presidents, Wild Hogs, Riders, Redwolves, Aviators, Wayfarers, Ambassadors, Griffins, Warriors, Armada, Rising, Swifts, Commanders, Pilots, Rubies and Renegades, among others. The organization has also included the possibility of retaining the name « Washington football team ».
« This is not a vote for the name, but rather an opportunity to get a point of view that will be very important in the next step in order to build a new identity. »
