Fans of the Washington Redskins received the news they've been waiting for now for years: the team has begun the process of building a new stadium.
Washington Redskins' owner Dan Snyder gave details to Comcast SportsNet on Wednesday that the team had started meeting with architects to develop a new stadium that would mimic the Redskins' former home RFK Stadium.
“We've already seen some preliminary drawings and I'm going to be very retro with it,” [Snyder] told CSN. “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.”
A location for the site hasn't yet been decided. The team currently plays at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland. However, the new stadium could bring the team back to Washington D.C. or even across the state line in Virginia, where the team has a large fan base.Read more... Comments Off
