The Washington Football Team won't pick a new name until 2022

The Washington Football Team will go by that name again in 2021. 

The team launched a website Tuesday that will chronicle the franchise's name change. On the front page of the site, it states "the future of Washington Football arrives in 2022."

The website also includes a timeline that walks fans through the name-change process. It includes five chapters: Transformation, discovery, insight, creation and execution. Throughout the process, the team will take suggestions from fans. In the discovery chapter, it states those suggestions "will guide the creation of our new identity."

There's an area on the website where fans can submit ideas for the next team name. Fans can write up their vision for the team, and even include images to uniform and logo designs they create. Anything submitted through this system will be owned by the team, so it's possible the organization could choose a fan submission for its next name and design.

For now, the team is displaying submitted ideas on its website. Fan-submitted names currently include the Washington Memorials, Washington Rhinos, and Washington Justice. Some of those, like the Justice, include pictures featuring new uniform and logo designs.

Washington changed nickname in July

In July, the team announced it would change its name to the Washington Football Team for the 2020 season. At the time, the team announced that would be a temporary nickname.

Since then, multiple suggestions have been thrown out by fans, including Redtails and Warriors. Those names could be an issue, as they've been trademarked by a man in Virginia. It's possible team owner Dan Snyder can work out a deal with the trademark holder and go with one of those names, though it appears the team is willing to consider all options at the moment.
