LANDOVER, Md. — Even though the Washington Football Team (WFT) still doesn’t have a name, owner Dan Snyder is already looking at what’s next for the franchise.
Currently, Snyder is working on plans for a new stadium that he hopes to open by 2027, according to a TMZ report. Snyder and his team haven’t picked out a location for the new stadium, but they were in Los Angeles viewing SoFi Stadium for inspiration.
“We’re touring stadiums,” Snyder told TMZ Sports. “We’re coming to the West Coast and touring. There’s about 12 of us and we’re just looking to build a new venue back home in D.C., Virginia, Maryland.”
Snyder also said he hopes to get all kinds of ideas for the new “state-of-the-art” facility in the D.C. area by traveling to different places in the world like Europe with his team.
“We’re taking inspiration from everywhere,” WFT President Jason Wright said. “Because if we’re going to do something that our fans really deserve which is cutting edge and innovative we’re going to take in all the ideas, So, we’re absorbing.”
Snyder also mentioned that it isn’t certain if the team would have a new name by the time the new stadium opens, but he clarified that the search is going well.
Washington has been under the name Washington Football Team since July 2020, but Wright may consider making Washington Football Team a permanent name according to ESPN.
As the team goes through major changes, fans will have to say goodbye to the FedEx stadium, which has been the team’s home since 1997. Some hope a new “state-of-the-art” stadium will bring brighter and better memories to this franchise’s fan base.
