The Washington Football team is going to have a new name very soon.

The team formerly known as the Redskins decided it will unveil its new nickname on Feb. 2nd, more than a year after retiring their previous nickname over external pressure.

Now it appears the team may have accidentally leaked it already as the domain ‘WashingtonAdmirals.com’ links back to the Washington Football Team’s main website, which is not the case with other potential nicknames.

See below:

“We are confident that this identity is one that our team and our fans across D.C., Maryland, Virginia and beyond can rally behind for another 90 years and more as we continue to cheer on the Burgundy & Gold in this next chapter,” Jason Wright said in a statement posted to the team’s website.

“Early on we understood Wolves – or some variation of it – was one of our fan favorites. As I’ve said all along, we take feedback from our fans seriously, and because of your interest in this name, we put Wolves on a list of options to explore fully,” Wright said. “Once we began looking into Wolves, however, we became aware of a notable challenge: trademarks held by other teams would limit our ability to make the name our own. And without Wolves, variations like RedWolves wouldn’t have been viable either for these and other reasons.”

He continued: “The prospect of years of litigation wasn’t something that we wanted you, our fans, to have to bear as you begin to embrace a new brand.”
