The Washington Football Team could be looking for a new training camp location as early as 2022. The new city and venue is an easy choice – Virginia Beach and its Sportsplex.
The Washington Football Team has seen many changes over the last 20 months and another change could be on the horizon. From the firing of former head coach Jay Gruden to the recent release of tackle Morgan Moses, the transformation of this team has been nothing short of monumental. More significant changes are likely to happen for at least another year or so, but one change could be coming soon and it could present a unique opportunity outside of the organization.
Last year during the Covid pandemic, all teams were ordered by the league to hold training camps at their home facilities. Instead of traveling to their training camp headquarters in Richmond, VA, the Washington Football Team spent the late summer session at the team headquarters in Ashburn, VA. The training camp location this year is undecided and no one seems to know where it will take place. Social media is full of speculation and wild rumors, but a decision is likely coming very soon.
Last summer was expected to be the final time that Washington would hold their training camp in Richmond, but the pandemic wreaked havoc with the 2020 offseason plans. No matter what happens, the Washington Football Team is in need of a new training camp location for 2022 and beyond. Head coach Ron Rivera seems to prefer a location other than team headquarters (that will probably be the option for this summer).
A decision for future training camps is needed and it is time to retrieve the Riggo’s Rag crystal ball from the vault and give you the best option(s) available. From the subtitle, you already know the choice here — Virginia Beach — and we’ll discuss why it makes the cut. We’ll also take a look at other sites.
