Per: Virginia to Propose New Stadium Plan for Commanders

The Commanders’ current home stadium, FedEx Field, opened in 1997 in Summerfield, Maryland.

The team’s lease at the facility runs through 2027.

Last year, it planned a new $3 billion stadium in Virginia that included a “mini-city.”

The proposed project failed to garner the government support needed.

An NFL stadium in Virginia could prove to be an economic boost for the Old Dominion. One study found that a new stadium and surrounding development could bring in $24.7 billion in direct economic activity by 2033.

Per: Commanders’ $3B Plan Includes Color-Changing Stadium

The stadium’s exterior would be able to change colors, according to The Richmond Times-Dispatch. Other features include:

A translucent roof that would allow both natural light and climate control.
An eco-friendly “heavy timber” construction process.
In addition to the stadium itself, the Commanders are drawing up plans for a $3 billion “mini-city” which would include an amphitheater, restaurants, bars, office space, and a convention center.

The team recently acquired the option to purchase 200 acres of land in Virginia’s Prince William County for $100 million. A bill providing an estimated $350 million in public funding for the project is expected to pass the state’s legislature within a month.

From last year, very unlikely with Snyder out.

RFK being stoked again as possibility with the sale final.

“The legislation, if passed, would extend the District’s lease of the RFK land from the federal government for 99 years and modify it so that the city would be allowed to redevelop RFK into any number of possibilities: residential and commercial, recreational facilities, and, of course, a stadium.”
