Casino town locations
When sports gambling became legal last year (and online early this year) in the state of Virginia, it opened up numerous opportunities for several locations and sports venues/sites. It will take a period of time for the casinos to be built, but it will happen over the next several years. It will be a great opportunity for the Washington Football Team to be one of the anchor attractions for areas that could use an economic boost.
New facilities will need to be built – at least four football fields, an indoor practice facility, and a state-of-the-art athletic building with a swimming pool, weight room, medical wing, personnel offices, and a cafeteria. How quickly could such a place be built? If this is under consideration, it could take two years before it is operational.
Potential casino locations that would be attractive to Washington may include Fredricksburg, Bristol, Martinsville, Roanoke, Danville, Portsmouth, Norfolk, and Emporia. The locations that make the most sense on this list include Bristol and Martinsville. Martinsville is home to one of the most popular NASCAR race tracks on the racing circuit. With that track, a new casino, and a training camp for Washington, the area would experience a huge economic boom. The same goes for Bristol with another NASCAR race track nearby – arguably, the most popular in the racing series.
