Redskins Officially Announce Training Camp Move to Richmond/Ashburn Renovations

Well, it seems others are now starting to talk about it as well. But I received a note this morning to expect an official announcement this afternoon (barring any last minute setback) that the Redskins are moving training camp to Richmond beginning next summer

What would prevent them from starting this Summer?

Next summer? Well, at least I will get one last chance to see them at Redskins Park this year. I do like this move though, I think it will be good for the team to get out of Redskins Park.

Definitely pretty sweet.

Ive never been to a training camp before. Is a stadium enclosed football field the same amount of room they had at Ashburn?

Definitely not. Redskins Park has at least 3 fields from my recollection, not counting their new indoor facility. From what I remember they only used 2 for practice, but that's still more than they'll have to work with in Richmond. Should be nice though, I think it will give us a chance to be closer to the team and having stands to sit in will be better than being in a crowd leaning up against the rail seperating the team from the fans.

Still won't be going. Watching practice has never been my thing. Funny they are doing this right after they built their bubble practice. Guess they are getting some good breaks from the city of Richmond.

This just means less running into them at Leesburg Restaurant Sunday mornings for me.

re: Redskins Officially Announce Training Camp Move to Richmond/Ashburn Renovations

Redskins Park in Ashburn will be undergoing major renovations and expansions, over $25 million worth

I suppose it's possible this move to Richmond is temporary while these renovations are done over the next couple of years

re: Redskins Officially Announce Training Camp Move to Richmond/Ashburn Renovations

$25 million in renovations is hardly major when compared to Garcon's contract.

I just look at it as us overpaying for a wide reciever/facility.
