NFL club Washington Redskins have promised to change their controversial name and logo, bowing to recent pressure from sponsors and decades of criticism that they are offensive to Native Americans.
The franchise, which was originally based in Boston, announced the decision after a “thorough review” that followed pressure form its sponsors.
The name and logo has long been seen as offensive to Native Americans.
The franchise said in a statement on Monday: “On July 3rd, we announced the commencement of a thorough review of the team’s name.”
It added: “That review has begun in earnest. 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.”
“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.”
