We have 2 leaders in the clubhouse when it comes to the new permanent name for the Washington Football Team … and one of ’em is inspired by that other brand of football.
Team sources tell us owner Daniel Snyder is strongly considering sticking with the Washington Football Team — for good reasons that we’ll get into in a moment — but we’re also told the Washington Football Club is also in the running.
Washington Football Team or Washington Football Club? WFT or WFC?
Let’s break it down. WFT has a lot going for it … head coach Ron Rivera has the team playing well lately. Yeah, they’re only 6-8, but that’s good enough to top the NFC East and, as of now, they’re in the playoffs. Winning cures all.
As for WFC … we’re told some folks in the organization like the tip of the hat to Premier League powerhouses Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal … all of which use the FC handle.
Now, we’re told it’s not a lock Snyder goes with either WFC or WFT … but he is keen on both. The team hasn’t picked a deadline to make a final choice, but it’s reportedly eyeing the 2022 season to debut the new permanent handle.
