LANDOVER, Md. — The Washington Football Team is out seeking a location for a new stadium, and a recent report ahead of the team’s rebranding launch indicates that the team may be looking across the Potomac River.
The Washington Post recently reported that representatives from the team had started to lobby legislators in Richmond to put forth legislation that would move along plans to build a new domed arena in Northern Virginia. The reports suggest that the team may be honing in on Loudon or Prince William’s County for a potential site.
However, the move is also expected to bring expanded commercial ventures and entertainment complexes to the surrounding area.
With any new stadium, a large price tag has followed. As Front Office Sports reports, a new stadium might have a prospective price tag of over $2 billion, based on recent history. Some other notable NFL stadiums have cost anywhere from $1 billion to over $5 billion.
Any legislation introduced to the Virginia General Assembly would come during the 60-day legislative session beginning in January 2022.
Even though the location has not been finalized and the team is expected to explore options across the DMV, the process will likely include many other hoops to jump through.
Not to mention the Washington Football Team has a contract to play at FedEx Field through 2027.
