WashingtonFootball.com Acquired by Washington Football Team

The NFL football team formerly known as the Washington Redskins has acquired the WashingtonFootball.com domain name. Redskins.com is now forwarding to WashingtonFootball.com, and the NFL team’s Twitter profile now includes a link to WashingtonFootball.com. Details about the domain name sale was reported by the former registrant, Cal Spears, CEO at Better Collective Tennessee.

According to a tweet from Spears, the NFL team privately acquired the domain name from him using a broker from GoDaddy. He had owned WashingtonFootball.com for 8 years:

According to a subsequent tweet, Spears revealed that the sale price for the domain name was $10,000. Spears also shared that he donated the $10,000 sale proceeds to the American Indian College Fund. That’s classy.

Spears lamented that he may have undersold the domain name, and while this will never be known for certain, it is likely a temporary domain name for the NFL football team that will change once a permanent franchise nickname is chosen.

It’s a nice domain name story to start the weekend.

Thanks to George Kirikos for sharing this.

  1. The Redskins should have kept their name and just changed their logo and branding to a red potato. Heck there is even a red potato type called Chieftain.

  2. Cal…i just sent you a Linkedin invite. If you’d like to hear what the next name is for Washington Football just connect with me and I’ll share the secret☺

  3. Glad this virtue signaling libtard only for 10k. The Redskins was a great name to showcase a valiant people. Too many have lost their minds.

  4. I cant help but feel that this is a one buyer one time kind of name. I love Geo and descriptive search keywords such as Football, Insurance, Real Estate, Properties but I wouldnt want to register WashingtonLacrosse or WashingtonBoxing. I much rather take a chance on say WashingtonPropertyInsurance.com or WashingtonRealEstate.com. Would love the opinion of any seasoned investor who has had some experienxe selling names like Geo + real estate or even Geo + sports names. Awesome nice story too!
