Washington Looking at New Locations for Next Stadium

Friday, March 11

According to the Washington Post's Jonathan O'Connell, the Redskins' next stadium could wind up in Loudoun County, Virginia, with Governor Terry McAuliffe pushing for a move west. Meanwhile, Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel E. Bowser "has inquired with federal officials controlling the land beneath RFK Stadium about building a new stadium there."

Another big development cropped up when the team reportedly hired trendy Danish architecture firm Bjarke Ingels Group to draw up designs for the team's next home, per O'Connell

One of the stadium models proposed by Bjarke Ingels Group is reportedly set to be unveiled on an upcoming episode of CBS' 60 Minutes, with the design showing "a semi-transparent hyperbolic paraboloid-shaped stadium surrounded by a moat for kayakers," per O'Connell.   

However, it's important to keep in mind that Washington is still in the early stages of exploring options.

The team's lease at FedEx Field doesn't expire until 2027, per O'Connell, so Snyder and Co. have plenty of time to weigh the pros and cons of different locales and designs.
