The Washington Redskins are no more as the NFL team announced they will drop the controversial name and logo.
The move comes 10 days after the franchise launched a review of the team’s name, which has long been considered offensive to Native Americans.
“Today we are announcing we will be retiring the Redskins name and logo upon completion of this review,” a statement said.
They adopted the Redskins name in 1933 before moving to Washington in 1937.
Their most recent Super Bowl title came in 1991.
It remains to be seen if a new name and logo can be implemented in time for what is due to be their season-opening game at home to the Philadelphia Eagles on September 13.
