Washington Football Team owner Dan Snyder is looking for a fresh start with a new “state of the art” stadium on the way for 2027.
According to TMZ Sports, Dan Snyder is touring a number of other football stadiums to get inspiration for renovations at FedEx Field in Washington.
In an interview after visiting SoFi stadium in Los Angeles, Snyder discussed plans for the updates that will be implemented over the next six years.
“We’re coming 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,” commented Snyder regarding his plans.
Team president Jason Wright added a positive outlook to Snyder’s sentiment and provided some good news for an organization that has continually fallen short of its Super Bowl hopes.
“We’re taking inspiration from everywhere … 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.”
Washington is coming off of a playoff season after winning the bumbling NFC East. Head coach Ron Rivera led the team to a 7-9 record. Now, Kyle Allen and Ryan Fitzpatrick will be vying for the starting QB position. The defense saw a boost in production under Chase Young, the 2020 Defensive Rookie of the Year, consistently posing a top-10 defensive threat to teams around the league.
