The title sponsor of the Washington Redskins’ stadium wants the NFL team to change its name.

In a statement Thursday, FedEx said: “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name.“ The company paid the team $205 million in 1999 for the naming rights to FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.

In addition to the stadium name and sponsorship agreement, FedEx CEO Frederik Smith is a minority owner. Majority owner Daniel Snyder has shown no indications he’ll change the name since buying the team in 1999.
