The Washington Commanders may be setting the foundation for a potential stadium site change.
Multiple outlets reported on Monday that the Commanders confirmed the purchase of a 200-acre space in Prince William County, in Virginia, as a potential site to build a new stadium relocate, amid all their with remaining at FedEx Field. The team has played at FedEx since 1997.
The sale of the land, which went for $100 million, was closed last week. Sources close to ESPN suggested that the team's ownership targeted the new spot as a "preferred site for a new stadium, but other options remain open." The purchased Woodbridge location has been a target for the team's ownership in the past.
Washington owner Dan Snyder has been promising since May 2021 that he has big plans for a new "state-of-the-art" venue by 2027.
