Redskins owner Dan Synder told CSN Washington Wednesday that they have “started the process” of planning a new stadium.
“Whether it’s Washington, D.C., whether it’s another stadium in Maryland, whether it’s a stadium in Virginia, we’ve started the process,” Snyder said. “We are going to push forward. We’ve started meeting with architectural firms. We are in the process of developing because it is a long term that you do it.”
FedEx Field, the team’s current stadium, opened for the 1997 season, but Synder mentioned that they would like to design the new stadium to “feel like RFK.”
“We’ve already seen some preliminary drawings and I’m going to be very retro with it,” Snyder said. “It’s gonna feel like RFK. It’s gonna move like RFK. I love that, I actually asked architectural firms to do it and they said that they can do it. I said that I think the lower bowl sections are going to want to rock the stadium like the old days.”
RFK is, of course, the team’s old stadium that opened back in 1961.
Snyder didn’t offer any sort of time frame for when they could receive approval. However, he did mention that the stadium would be designed to host Super Bowls in the coming years.
