The Washington Football team has revealed its new name and brand identity, the Washington Commanders. This new identity embodies the most powerful aspects of Washington’s story by paying tribute to the team’s rich history and championship culture, personified by mission-driven players who take command, forge success and break barriers on and off the field. The result of an 18-month collaborative process with fans, alumni, players, community leaders, and stakeholders across the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area, “Commanders” brings to life the commitment to service and leadership that defines the DMV community. Importantly, the team’s new identity also represents the values that bond the Burgundy & Gold family, including resilience, grit, tradition, and unity. It honors the progress and potential of its present and future.
“As an organization, we are excited to rally and rise together as one under our new identity while paying homage to our local roots and what it means to represent the nation’s capital,” said co-owner and co-CEO Dan Snyder. “As we kick-off our 90th season, it is important for our organization and fans to pay tribute to our past traditions, history, legacy, and the greats that came before us. We continue to honor and represent the Burgundy & Gold while forging a pathway to a new era in Washington. Today may mark the first day for the Washington Commanders, but we are and always will be Washington.”
The team has also revealed new brand elements, including its primary logo, its word mark, and a team crest. The primary logo of the Washington Commanders is a powerful “W.” This symbol carries forward an element of the Washington Football Team chapter in the franchise’s history and acknowledges the team’s deep Washington roots, while the W’s angled cuts, bolded lines, and serifs signify forward movement and progress. The slanted elements of the stripes bordering the “W” are inspired by military rank insignia, helping to infuse the familiar mark with elements of the team’s new identity. In the word mark, “WASHINGTON” introduces the tall and proud letters of the team’s name. The cuts of the “C” lead the eye across the mark and the two stripes that frame the name pay homage to the D.C. flag and give the mark a sense of power and authority.
A unique brand element within the NFL, Washington’s crest features core elements of the team’s identity and the franchise’s defining moments. The top left and bottom right quadrants note the year the club was founded in 1932, 90 years ago. The top right quadrant showcases the main logo mark, the “W,” symbolizing the team’s future, and the bottom left quadrant features three stars, representative of the stars on the D.C. flag and the team’s position within the Nation’s Capital. Washington Football highlighted across the top of the crest pays homage to the many historic firsts and iconic legends associated with this Washington team throughout its nearly 90-year tenure in the DMV, and the years 1937, 1942, 1983, 1988, and 1992 written across the bottom commemorate the franchise’s World Championships and Super Bowls. The crest is completed by a gold ring, which represents unity and encapsulates all elements of the brand identity.
To honor the deep legacy of this 90-year-old franchise, the traditional burgundy and gold color scheme will remain at the center of the team’s new identity. The home uniform will also retain the burgundy and gold colors, a specific reference to uniforms of the past.
“Through more than 40,000 fan submissions and countless surveys, focus groups, and meetings, this 18-month rebrand process has been a collaborative effort with our fans, alumni, players, and local DMV community, all leading to today as we embark on a new chapter in our legacy as the Washington Commanders,” said co-owner and co-CEO Tanya Snyder. “Going into our 90th year, we are excited to celebrate the rich history of the Burgundy & Gold while also paving the way for new traditions as the Washington Commanders.”
Beginning at 9 a.m., fans can purchase select new merchandise at the Team Store at FedExField and anywhere official fan merchandise is sold online, including the online team store. New merchandise will include t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, sweatshirts for men, women, and children, and hats. Also beginning no, fans will be able to preorder the primary burgundy Washington Commanders jersey anywhere official fan merchandise is sold online. The jersey will begin shipping in May.
To continue the celebration of the team’s new identity, starting now a variety of surprise events and experiences will be rolled out around the DMV to bring the new brand to fans in the local community. These live events and digital experiences will include branded cars that will canvas the DMV and surprise fans with visits from alumni handing out swag and new team gear. Trucks featuring jumbo-sized digital screens will also crisscross D.C., Maryland, and Virginia while airing the team’s official brand launch film. Additionally, buildings and DMV landmarks will light up across the region with projections of the team name and logo and the burgundy and gold colors, including the DAR Constitution Hall, Union Market, and the Mosaic District.
On Friday, February 4, the team has invited fans to FedExField to park and party with the Commanders. On this night it will host a Park and Party event presented by Bud Light, featuring tailgating and a showing of exclusive team content and an NFL Films feature on the Super Bowl XXVI championship team, as well as games, giveaways, food trucks, a mobile Fanatics Team Store, DJ, and a brand-themed fireworks show to end the evening. Additional details can be found HERE.
The announcement and launch mark the beginning of the next phase of the team’s rebrand process. Over the next two years, the team will work closely with fans to pull forward traditions under a new banner and combine them with new traditions fans will help to create, including bringing back the fight song and designing the second alternate uniform. And if the future of the team looks bright to you, don’t miss the chance to bet on their games on these amazing betting sites.

Representing a first-of-its-kind collaboration, Republic Records, Warner Bros. Pictures, and Xbox present the music video for “Gametime” by Lil Tecca and Aminé—from the Space Jam: A New Legacy Official Soundtrack. Watch the music video for “Gametime”—HERE.
In celebration of the upcoming film, Xbox invited fans from around the world to submit their ideas for an original Space Jam: A New Legacy–themed video game. The result is “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game,” a basketball beat ‘em up reminiscent of classic arcade games of the ‘90’s.
For the “Gametime” music video, Xbox animated Lil Tecca into the newest member of the Tune Squad as a character in the arcade-style game, on-screen. During a key sequence, the multi-platinum New York rapper faces the Goon Squad alongside none other than basketball superstar, LeBron James. In addition to “Space Jam: A New Legacy – The Game,” the music video showcases an exclusive Tune Squad Xbox Wireless Controller and a custom Bugs Bunny Xbox Series S Console. The integration marks a full circle moment for Tecca who started rapping and honing his craft while on Xbox Live.
“Ten years ago if you told me I’d be in an Xbox game with the G.O.A.T. himself, I wouldn’t believe it,” commented Tecca. “This is the biggest dream come true, and I’m so thankful Bron, Xbox, and Space Jam: A New Legacy invited me to the party.”
“We’ve got a rap superstar, an iconic film franchise, and the greatest athlete of this generation in one video,” added Marcos Waltenberg, Director of Xbox Global Partnerships. “We’ve never done anything of this magnitude between sports, music, film, and video games. It’s a watershed moment for Xbox, and we’re honored to be a part of it.”
The “Space Jam: A New Legacy–The Game” launched globally on July 1 exclusively into Xbox Game Pass Perks for a limited time. The game will be available free-to-play for all fans through the Microsoft Store on Xbox on Thursday, July 15.

Rado ambassador Ash Barty’s star is rising higher and higher. In an interview last year with ABC News she was quoted: “One day I would love to be the champion here, it’s a dream”. That dream became reality on Saturday when she defeated Karolina Pliskova in the final of the oldest and most prestigious Grand Slam tournament – Wimbledon.
Even before her latest exploit, the 2021 season has been a terrific one for the Australian tennis star. Ranked World Number 1 since June 2019, she has already added three more singles titles to her impressive personal record. After her win at the Yarra Valley Classic in Melbourne in February, she claimed the title at the Miami Open (WTA 1000) in March and won both singles and doubles titles at the Porsche Grand Prix Cup in Stuttgart. With her second Grand Slam title (after Roland Garros in 2019), she consolidated her Number 1 position in an impressive way.
According to Ash’s childhood coach, she picked up her first racquet at the age of 4 and hit the first ball he tossed to her right back to him. A Junior Wimbledon Champion at 15 and three-time Grand Slam Doubles finalist at 17, Ash became Australia’s highest-ranked player at 21 and the World Number 1 at just 23. In addition to her 12 career singles titles, Ash has won 11 career doubles titles, playing with different partners. Now 25 years of age, she enjoys a well-earned reputation as one of the WTA’s most dynamic and talented players.
Ash Barty’s Rado connection goes back to 2017 when she joined the Swiss watchmaker’s YoungStar programme. With Rado, she shares an abiding love of the game, unwavering determination, and a passion for endlessly inventive and creative play. Ash also enjoys the design aspect of the relationship and worked with Rado designers to develop the look of the Rado HyperChrome Ash Barty Limited Edition. After this off-court experience she said: “As a watch lover, I enjoyed working on the design and helping the team create this beautiful piece. I love it!” And so, apparently, do her friends and fans: Ash and Rado have started work on a second Limited Edition Rado that will carry her name.
Ash Barty has renewed her association with the brand and serves today as an ambassador for Rado, which stands with tennis fans everywhere in taking pride in her achievements and stature as one of the greatest players in the game.
Rado has been a committed supporter of tennis and sponsor of international tournaments for close to 40 years and is the Official Timekeeper for a range of high-profile tournaments around the world.
