The Alliance of American Football (AAF) team in San Antonio is now officially the San Antonio Commanders, the league announced Tuesday.
The team’s official logo was also released. A version of the logo had been circulating since last week.
Here is the announcement from the league regarding the name and logo:
“For over 300 years, San Antonio has had a constant military presence with one of the nation’s largest active and retired military populations in the United States. The San Antonio Commanders honor the heroic leaders in the United States Air Force and United States Army who have dedicated their lives to service and sacrifice for this great country. The team colors feature maroon, a color used in the official city logo, silver, in reference to dress military swords carried by officers, and the familiar red of the Texas state flag. The shape of the logo is representative of a military patch and includes a depiction of the Alamo, a profound symbol for the city of San Antonio. The single star is a nod to the Lone Star state. The Commanders will make Military City, USA proud through teamwork, resolve, innovation, sacrifice and results. “
