Washington Redskins new stadium planning has begun

The Washington Redskins have begun planning to make a change, but it is not for the team nickname or logo. Instead, the Washington Redskins are beginning to look at building a brand new stadium in the D.C. area and have started on the design.

“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 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,” Snyder told CSN Washington.

“We’ve already seen some preliminary drawings and I’m going to be very retro with it. 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.”

The Redskins have been at their current stadium, FedEx Field, since 1997.

There is currently no timetable for the new stadium proposal to be finalized, but Snyder has hopes it will lead to the team one day hosting a Super Bowl in the D.C. area.
