Redskins Have “Started The Process” Of Planning New Stadium


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.

We’ll have more regarding a potential new Redskins’ stadium as the news is available.

    Manassas Redskins….
    Bet we could keep the name them.

    Snyder may not be able to get funding from any government body until he changes the team name. Even then, Maryland or DC wouldn’t subsidize a new stadium unless Danny threatened to move the team out of the area (Los Angeles, San Antonio). Virginia would let them leave.

    Didn’t realize FedEx Field was already falling apart? Synder should see San Diego’s Qualicom Stadium to see where the Chargers have to play. It should have been replaced 20 years ago. Wonder what that is leaking out of the rusted pipes there???

    Move to Virginia! I would love to see my team back in the state it belongs in. Richmond is a great host for training camps and more centrally located. I’m sure the fans from the west would appreciate the less congestive traffic.
