Calls for Exeter Chiefs to entirely alter branding in new development
There have been calls for the Chiefs the remove their ‘racist’ and ‘culturally appropriating’ branding which the club has used since 1999.
A petition for Exeter Chiefs to entirely change their branding has gathered steam overnight with 131 signatures.
In the past 24 hours, a new logo has been presented to the club by the public showing a logo which would omit Native American symbolism from the badge.

The Exeter Chiefs introduced new branding in 1999 including the head of a Native American in a head-dress as the club logo. They have a mascot called Big Chief, a Native American Indian character wearing Chiefs kit and holding an inflatable tomahawk.
The imagery and dressing up by fans with head-dresses and tomahawks have come in for criticism from some quarters in recent years, with claims that ‘playing Indian’ is insulting to Native Americans.
