LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The Washington Redskins have begun the process of designing a new stadium to replace the 17-year-old FedEx Field.
A location for the new stadium has not been determined, team owner Daniel Snyder tells Comcast SportsNet.
Snyder says the new stadium will have the feel of the team’s former home of RFK Stadium.
“We’ve already seen some preliminary drawings and I’m going to be very retro with it,” Synder said, per 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.”
The team has discussed building a domed stadium at the site of the old RFK Stadium in northeast Washington, according to NBC 4.
The owner says he hopes the stadium will help lure a Super Bowl to the region.
“It ought to be here, it would be a fantastic accomplishment,” he said. “It’s the biggest sporting event in the globe. It’s the nation’s capital, it’s a no-brainer.”
The Redskins current lease at FedEx Field expires in 2027.
