The NFL Draft has come and gone and Washington Commanders fans are satisfied with the team’s overall showing. The hope is the incoming class, coupled with the team’s incredibly talented young core, will help the new era of Washington Football get started on the right foot.
By all accounts, the Commanders rebrand was a success. While some fans are still adjusting to the nickname, others have taken it in stride.
Between former QB Doug Williams getting to make the announcement, involving several Washington alumni in the celebration — which included Joe Theismann, London Fletcher and Gary Clark sharing their thoughts on the name change — and revealing a new set of uniforms, Washington crushed the rebrand.
While fans wait patiently to see what the new uniforms and helmets look like on players, the Commanders logo has made its long-awaited FedEx Field debut and to say it looks fetching would be an understatement.
Check out these pictures, folks.
FedEx Field looks beautiful with the new Commanders logos.
For a stadium that opened in 1997 and hasn’t undergone many renovations under Dan Snyder’s ownership, FedEx Field has never been regarded as eye candy.
And with all of the malfunctions that materialized last season, culminating in a railing collapse that nearly injured several fans and Eagles QB Jalen Hurts, the 25-year-old stadium has become a laughingstock amongst NFL fans.
While FedEx may still be subject to the occasional sewage leak, railing collapse, smoke machine defect or someone carelessly leaving a pair of scissors on the field, nobody can deny the arena looks beautiful with the Commanders logos.
So much so that it’s tough to pick a favorite new feature. The new “W” design at midfield is a great touch. The Burgundy and Gold outline really makes the logo stand out. The same can be said of the end zones repping the new insignia. The gold lettering with the burgundy background is a job well done by the design team.
For added perspective, here are some before photos.
What a way to kick off the Commanders era, right?
Say what you will about FedEx Field as a stadium, but these renovations, for lack of a better term, are the perfect reminder that the Burgundy and Gold is one of the best (if not the best) color pattern in the NFL.
