Commanders supporting D.C. bid for RFK Stadium
While there could be a bidding war for the new Washington Commanders stadium site once Josh Harris' ownership group takes charge, the franchise itself might have already laid out its preferred venue.
A return to RFK Stadium.
In a statement released to the Associated Press via NBC Washington, a Commanders' spokesperson stated they are supporting efforts for the District of Columbia to gain control of the site. Something that could start an exciting process that leads to a lavish new facility.
"(We are) sharing our vision for a potential venue that will create jobs and economic growth for the region and be compatible with the surrounding community and the elected leaders of the District."- Commanders spokesperson via AP
The land is currently owned by the federal government, which leaves Congress as the primary stumbling block preventing a new stadium from being constructed on the site.
Should it fall into the hands of D.C. officials, it's a different story. And Harris has assembled enough respected influential businessmen within his group to potentially make this dream a reality.
