Commanders new stadium reset?
One of the primary long-term objectives for Josh Harris and his ownership group centers on a new stadium. FedEx Field is no longer fit for purpose after being left to rot by previous owner Dan Snyder, although the new regime does plan to upgrade the facility significantly in pursuit of improving fan experiences next season.
There are three districts that would like the new stadium, including the Washington Commanders franchise's former home at RFK. However, part-owner Mitchell Rales stated recently via The Washington Post that everything remains up in the air.

Whether this means hitting the reset button entirely or simply reassessing remains to be seen. Virginia and Maryland are both willing to sump up a significant amount of public funds to get the Commanders' new stadium, which might be easier to sort out considering the RFK site is government owned.
Harris' prospectus indicated that he would like a new stadium in place by 2031. That does appear optimistic, but nothing can be dismissed one way or another right now.
