The 2022 season isn’t the first time the Commanders will wear an anniversary jersey patch. The most recent year Washington did so was in 2007 when the franchise sported a 75th-anniversary patch in the same location on their jerseys.

Here’s former Washington safety LaRon Landry sporting the 75th-anniversary patch in 2007:

As part of the 90th-anniversary celebration, the Commanders will unveil a commemorative merchandise line that will be available for purchase in August at the team’s store. The franchise will also launch a “Command Legacy” website on July 9, which per the team “will feature historical moments celebrating the rich 90-year history of the franchise.”

Additionally, the team plans to invite several alumni from the franchise’s history to home games throughout the season. Each home game will feature a former player as an honorary captain.
